Hmmmm pie... 
By asplitsecond
to pi or not to pi, that's the question 
By esger
it's actually a kind of riddle, what does the picture represent and how does the representation actually work? 
By esger
A very small hint that should eleviate some strange things you could see without it.
3,144 would be more correct then 3,14 in the '50' line 
By esger
A hint in the form of a cryptogram: A famous rally takes place here. 
By asplitsecond
And this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monte_Carlo_method has something to do with it right? 
By asplitsecond
here it's maybe even explained a bit better:

By asplitsecond
ah, that maybe doesn't completely explains "how the representation actually works" but let's keep it at that it is a Monte Carlo simulation for determining the value of pi where the first attempt is the least accurate, while with more "samples" it becomes more accurate. 
By esger
not entirely. But it's a very good start 
By esger
so...who's the first one to explain all numbers and how they relate to each other? 
By esger
all is quiet on the pi(iix) front....
