### Pi is exactly 3!

I've just been searching for random things on Google because I'm bored, and I came up with these:

There are 18,800 hits for 3.14159265359

There are 1,670 hits for 3.14159265358

(Those two were just benchmarks; they're *actually* Pi – the first one's rounded to 12 significant figures, and the second is the first 12 digits)

There are 102 hits for 3.14159265357

There are 20 hits for 3.14159265356

There are 4 hits for 3.14159265355

There are 242 hits for 3.14159265354

There are 277 hits for 3.14159265353

There are no hits for 3.14159265352

There are 3 hits for 3.14159265351

And at this point I got bored. It's quite worrying, really…

Coincidentally, there are 1,950 hits for pi is exactly 3
