Constant failure
Have we defined our fundamental constants with maximum efficiency?
Robert P Crease invites your comments

In Proposition 3 of On the Measurement of the Circle, Archimedes
asserts, based on calculations involving regular polygons
circumscribed around and inscribed in a circle, that "the ratio of the
circumference of any circle to its diameter is less than 3 1/7 but
greater than 3 10/71". He thereby strongly reinforced, if he did not
actually create, the tradition of considering that ratio, two
millennia later referred to as ğ, to be fundamental.


That shows up as an apple on my newsreader. Apple pi maybe.
