And I'm still kind of bummed that I missed out on the woot shirt from last year of a cake in the shape of pi. Nice job thatrobert!! Maybe you'll see me wearing my shirt some time since I live in Beaverton!



Cool. I hope I run into you. Still waiting for the day when I see one of my shirts in the wild!

Truncation is a perfectly cromulent rounding method, especially with \pi, where the memorisation of the actual digits is considered important in its own right.

How can it be sold out when the day is still young? Now that is irrational and unjust.

Why is it that whenever anyone references pi, they never even attempt to write the correct numbers? It takes 1 second to look at it on a calculator. Now thousands of people have a worthless shirt that shows their ignorance.

If someone wanted a shirt that simply displayed pi, they could make their own with a blank T and some markers. This one is much more interesting looking that most pi-shirts, which alone keeps it from being worthless.

I'm not buying it either because of the rounding mistake. Grammar mistakes on shirts are awesome, but truncating instead of rounding is reprehensible.

i didnt want to search through 4 pages to see if anyone else has pointed this out, but the one is impossibly bisecting the three on the bottom.

small oversight, brutal on the eye. should have been fixed before sending it to press...

Now that you pointed it out I can't help but notice it!

Love this shirt, Just put in my order. I noticed a few people commenting on the rounding of the number. The true value for pie is 3.141592654... etc and I was taught in college physics that it is proper to round to the nearest even number. This (in theory) avoids a bias from rounding up all the time. So 3.1415926 is in fact using a legal rounding method.

As far as the way the 1 intersects with the 3 and 4, I like it like this. To me it seems like the 1 is stabbed through the 3 and 4 and connecting the number intimately. If the 1 was in front of the 3, it would seem like the 3 was in the background instead of intertwined with its brothers .14

What a wise person you are. Thanks for the well-written response to many of the complaints.

I see this on woot and it is already sold out so I can't get it. Then like the next day it is on the reckoning for $5 more? L-a-m-e.

That's actually the way the system works. Every day. For all shirts.

Okay. Let me explain it to you like this: Woot shirts are $15. But on their first day of sale--the day they are shirt-of-the-day on the main shirt.woot page--they are discounted to $10. Now, woot will only sell up to 3000 of those shirts at their $10 price point on the first day. It's keeping that $10 sale exclusive to early buyers. After that first day, the shirts are $15. So it's a philosophy of "you snooze, you lose" when acquiring shirts at the discounted first-day price of $10.
