### I know you don't care, but who cares…

### 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

### I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you

I've got work due in tomorrow, so I thought I'd write an entry about last night.A few of my housemates and I decided to have a barbeque last night, for reasons that are unlikely to be made clear at this point. We set off to Tesco in the car in search of some form of instant barbeque, and something to put on it. I made the point that barbeques would probably be in the seasonal aisle in the Summer. I was proved right; Tesco had no barbeques. We gave up on that idea and bought a few general supplies since we were there (Tesco Finest Hot Cross Buns are very, very nice).

So, that was my excitement for the day. Well, that and losing at poker…

### There are 10 kinds of people in this world…

Writing about web page http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/search.do?productCode=BINCLO

…those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I hate this website, and I want this clock

I Want One Of Those is evil and has too may tempting expensive items…
