Mathematical "Piss-Offs"

 O
ne thing which pisses me off the most about mathematics (in this case "God" for want of a better term) is that it often makes damnably close approximations to obvious conclusions ... without perhaps any meaning at all.

It seems like a "disinformation" campaign.

### Take this fundamental thingy ...

"e", "pi" and 3 are quite fundamental numbers aren't they? Three is how many dimensions there are after all. OK ... then why must it be that,

pi minus 3 equals ______ 0.141592654

and

3 minus e equals ______ 0.281718172

and then,

2 times 0.141592654 equals ______ 0.283185308

and now,

0.283185308 minus 0.281718172 equals ______ 0.001467136

so that,

2.718281828 over 0.001467136 yields ______ 1852+

!

Why is this difference so close to two? Why couldn't it be further off than one lousy sheet of paper on a pile of paper eight inches high (1852 pieces)?

I have encountered painful facts like this before. What am I supposed to do? By our nature we must draw inferences when we see improbable "thingies" ... but these improbable thingies are everywhere!

Alien disinformation ...
