this video is going to be a little more educational than usual OK, so there is this channel that I used to really like watching called Vi art Hart. Heart? And I say ‘used to’, because she doesn’t really post that often anymore She makes videos that combine two of my favourite subjects: Math and Art. y-you like math??? Yes, okay, I like math. So vi hart (I don’t know her real name) made videos about math, and triangles, and trans-genderism… I’m gonna be honest, I’ve kind of forgotten everything she’s talked about hexa-something, that was one of her things… but every year she’s made anti-pi videos Pi as in the math pi, remember? we’re talking about math… not the… Okay, so she posts them every year on pie day wich is today, it’s pie day, if you didn’t know that let me just tell you something interesting about pi, in 1949 we started using

computers to find pi and we kept getting closer and closer as technology

advanced and we never found the true value of pi To this day, all those PI to a million

places websites Nope, not pi. Yeah, we’ve gotten really

really close to PI and yet we’re nowhere near as close because it’s infinite I mean it’s close enough where you

physically can’t measure that accurate in the real world but it’s not the true

value of pi. The true value of pi goes on forever and we haven’t really gotten to

the end of that Okay, so back to vi hart. there’s a high

chance she made a 2016 anti-pi video today right now so go check it out link is

in the description if she’s made one so I guess this is a rebuttal video about

why pi is actually awesome but I’m going to be rebuting her 2014 video,

because the 2015 one was kind of stupid “Ah, March 14, That’s just an arbitrary number on a

calendar we created Yeah!” Man, shut up and I actually wanted to make this video

back in 2015 but I didn’t instead I just made this

comic because last year was hashtag ultimate pie day. So I’ve actually waited

a year now so I’m excited to talk about it Let’s do it! I hope i’m not breaking any copyright laws

by this. “Pi day, I’m mad about how people worship pi for being infinite for going

on forever first of all pi is not infinite” Well yeah it is but that’s not why it’s

awesome every number is technically infinite you take the number four and

you add a point zero for still the same but in theory you can

add a zero forever making it technically infinite and that’s just what PI is. it’s just

a number it’s not infinity. no one’s saying that

it is. “I know it’s not about its magnitude it’s about all those digits

infinite digits going on forever but first of all it doesn’t go anywhere” Yeah, no it doesn’t. That, *sigh* it doesn’t make

it not awesome it’s right there on the number

line between three and four it’s just a number like I said, y equals

pi is just a straight horizontal line you take the derivative of pi – you get

zero, it’s a number! It’s just a number man, just a number! “Pi is a number, not a process” Yeah, okay, we agree! but that doesn’t make

it not awesome the speed of light is “just a number” it’s

about what that’s super specific number represents “Secondly yeah so it’s got infinite

digits, so what? One-third has infinite digits.” Yeah but pi is

random numbers that go on forever and there’s no pattern, that’s what’s so cool do you know what the trillionth digit of

pi is? No! No you don’t, it’s random digits with no pattern. but I know the

trillionth digit of one third – spoiler alert – It’s three! “There is exactly as many digits in

one-third as in pi as in 9.9999 repeating…” Yeah the digits

of pi are random but the number as a whole isn’t random at all, which is another

cool thing. It is the ratio of the diameter of a

circle to its circumference, multiply the diameter by PI you get the circumference. Are you forgetting that? “There’s an

infinite number of irrational numbers. For any two fractions you can find another fraction that’s between them, and again and again and again – there’s never any

fractions that are right next to each other on the number line.” Yes, irrational numbers are

technically everywhere take the one millionth digit of pi,

change it to a three and you get an entirely new irrational number it’s not

pi anymore I mean this was never pi to begin with,

but you can’t use this to get the circumference anymore nuh-uh, not good. but it’s this highly specific

irrational number that this special ratio occurs Not this one, not this one, this one! It’s why we made this specific

irrational number its own symbol Well okay, we actually used a Greek

letter so it’s not totally made up “So, I don’t know why anyone would make a

fuss about the grand infinities and forevers of a boring little number like

PI.” *scoffs* It’s not boring number by taking such a simple ratio of such a simple geometric object.” Yes! Thank you! It’s so weird right? “Surely that never happens with other simple ratios of other simple geometric objects –

OH WAIT! They’re in everything!” What? No, okay. If you take one of the sides of

a square and multiply it by this number you get the length of it’s diagonal between the corners Ok so this is the ratio of the side of a

square and its diagonal and it’s just random numbers that go on forever kinda like pi. So why don’t we celebrate

this number? Why don’t we have a special symbol for it like pi? Well, actually we do! It’s called radical 2! Look, you just take this number, you square it you get 2! Just plain, old, boring 2. That’s not special! You can’t square pi and get something

like 10! You square pi, it’s still irrational! Look at this

triangle same deal right? This number goes on forever – but wait – it can be

written down as radical 3 over 2 just like what you did in the video! Now

this one for a Pentagon we do use the symbol for it. It’s a Greek symbol called

phi. phi. phi? That’s really close to pi. I wonder if that was

on purpose… now phi is approximately this number kinda like pi right? Totally one hundred

percently irrational I think we got ourselves another pi – but

wait we can rewrite it like this! Hey, sidenote; this number is considered to be the

golden ratio it has to do when we talk about that swirly like seashell thing

and it can actually found an art so that’s pretty cool Okay, back to pi! You can’t rewrite pi

like any of these numbers, pi is its own number! It stands by itself above the rest it’s

not radical 2 not rad 3 over 2 but just plain ol’ 3.1415 That’s why pi is so awesome. there’s a

picture going around the internet that’s like pi contains the day you were born

the day you die we give the numbers letters every

possible conversation you ever had and every conversation you didn’t have. You see now

that’s just stupid. that’s just the nature of having random

numbers go on forever. I could do the same thing on random

generator.org if I just generated a random digit forever Now what does this mean, do circles

even exist? How can you have a bendy line with just

straight lines? What is real?! Alright so just to finish things up this

is all bull crap. Well not all of it… Well yeah, all of it.

The reason why pi is actually famous and so beloved is because let’s be real

guys it’s called pi. you don’t see people

celebrating pi day because they appreciate how this irrational number is

the ratio between the diameter and the circumference. They’re celebrating it because it’s

called pi! “You can’t tell me the success of Kevin Bacon isn’t somehow tied to his name. You’re not going out to see a Kevin

hot dog movie.” And I think that’s what happened to PI. People were like, “Ahh this

boring math term has a funny name!” *Snicker* “Let’s celebrate it on our meaningless

calendars.” … That was a video… vi hart, I don’t

even know if you go on the internet anymore but I used to really like

watching your videos because you know when I was like growing up. I’ve, I grew

up with you. I grew up with your videos I know you, you know? vi hart if you’re

watching this what’s up I used to really like watching

your videos you should make more I miss you. Your’e alive, right? No, you are alive.

You have a twitter. I… I follow you on twitter Please come back! They only have reaction channels now and they’re stupid! *sniff*

π=22/7

=3………………….

There is a chance that the number 42069 appears infinitely in Pi

i could listen to james ranting about math for like hours man

Your animation is so lazy the mouth of your character doesn’t even move.

It's cool how he argues with the youtuber who is technically not answering

I only remember

3.14159265358 I haven't memorized the rest yet.

Haha. That was a joke if you didn't get it. I can't memorize the rest…..

22/7=π

grt vid but i think James forgot Pi can be rewritten as 22/7

what about 22/7?

Can you tutor people for math, I’m not good at math

🙁

Therrreessss hydrogen and helium and lithium beryllium boron carbon everywhere nitrogen all throug

If you like math like this comment,also anyone in 2019.

I don't know that much about pi,I'm just in highschool even though it's called Queen's College in Guyana. Don't come and kill me.

Pie is awsome uts so good

3:32 i’m only going to say 3 things…

3.14159265359 = pi

Thanks Google XD

Pick a number between one and ten

Multiply it by 2

Multiply it by 5

Divide the number you have now with the number you have now

Subtract 7

Now you have the number 3 as your answer

Who caught the Easter egg

Pie can be written as ²²/⁷

I don’t get this…

3.141506 idk if it’s pi

Anyone else have no idea what he was saying lol

3.1415926535897932384626433832795 equals to pi

3.14159265

I am in the 6th grade and on my last question on a thing kind of like a short quiz on how much I learned it mentioned a tire, its diameter, and How far would it travel each time it spins or something.. after that, in parentheses, it said use 22/7 = pi. I hadn't even learned what it equals yet… so I grew like 19 points or something.. SHOWER ME WITH GIFTS RIGHT NOW FOR MY SMARTNESSESSDIOPEWZZZZX

My teacher legit played this in class on pi day.

has nobody realised that the reason pi day is on march 14th is because 03/14 is the date of march 14th, and the first digits of pi are 3.14

Isn't pi just 3 because if you round pi its not 4 its 3

March – > 3

14th

All that togeather

3.14

I love that you love Vi Hart and you're rebuttal also act as an ad for her channel.

Now two things :

1/ pi sound like pie only in English and yet the whole world love pi so I don't thing it has anything to do with pie (well maybe in America it does, I don't know).

2/ vi Hart number one concern about pi is that it's the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter when a ration to its radius would make way more sense. Down with pi long live tau (=6.283…). Everything you love about pi is true about tau. Vi Hart loves tau. Just switch to tau and you could love it together…

Pi can be represented as 22/7. I feel like that’s an important detail that was left out

My birthday is on pi day…

SHE IS BACK

me: haha..I don't math…

3:32 So I’m the only one that noticed there’s a fricken EASTER EGG in pi?

Is it just me or does that lady sound like jaiden?

But pi can be represented by 22/7

WTF how is it possible to hate Pi???

I agree with you that Pi is awesome but I kinda feel sad because now I know that there are people who like math but hate Pi so it's a bummer.

Edit: I finished the video…

Did you find out how to prevent lip smacking yet…

A pi is like a pie.

If you half of the pie you get the diarogram

How cool would it be if james went on tour and tutored kids who won a prize or something

What piday is Mon Oct 21

Who’s just super bad at math and doesnt understand what a “ derivative” or any other word means

pi = 22/7

3:32 easter egg

pi is the sideways 8 the value is 8 lol

6:57 My mom is a math teacher sooo I’m one of the rare people who actually do-

I took a shot every time they said pi

i love vihart!

In greek π is pronounced pee and Φ is pronounced fee

At 3:32 the video did anyone else see the Easter egg?

i thought u meant the life of pi

Ok, nerd

u know if pi is written backwards it actually spells pie

68 digits of pi

We had to mesmerize that in 5th hrade

Search up pie song

Somehow else cane here from her video

Any one watching from 2019

?

3.14159265258979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781640628620898628034825342117067

Pi = 22/7

:/

?

It’s an infinite finite number.

It’s infinitely long, but never as long as four.

3.14159265358979323846264338312

Pi.

3:32 it says Easter egg

I actually know the first 20 digits of pi

I just came back from vi Hart's channel…. And…… It's really good!!! So if u haven't go over there and see her videos

*cough*confusionGolden spiral made by leanardo da pizza (fibbinachi)

Me worrying that he will become a math teacher 😅🙂🙃☹️😣😓😭😭😭😭

This is how much I actually know about Pi

3.1415926589

Vi Hart sounds like jaiden

Well I mean March 14th isn’t arbitrary. March is the 3rd month so 3. And the 14th of March is 14. So 3/14. Looks it’s also like 3.14! 😮

Vihart is beautiful!

cmon james pi can be written as 22 / 7

i saw the easter egg

In 6th grade now we learn about geometry

And so one of the formulas for a circle

Is Pi(Multiplied by)(Radius)(Multiplied by)(Radius)

In school my teacher told me that pi is equal to 3.14

I have no idea what this means cause I’m in 3rd grade and I don’t learn algebra yet sooo… bye!

Finally someone who likes pi too

Why dose the person that hates pi sounds like jaden

Pi can be written as 22/7😂😂

3:32 Easter egg

First of all let me help that poor Φ …

Its more like Fi but like f and an e …

Like … I can't think of a word right now

Who does not like pie 🥧?

I know I do love it UwU

Actually pi is about 2 Trillion digits long

Pi day 2019 is out James they are back

Just realised:

pi day = 3-14

First 3 digits of pie 3.14

🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

lie

3.14159265359

Between 3 and 4 is 3.5

Am I the only one who likes math and actually likes pi?

How can we not find pie when we madd I’m confused

My Birthday is pie day o: but its also white day or Japanese Valentines day

This is a cool video. I'm so happy I found this channel.

Anyway, I don't know if you will read this but I want to tell another fact about pi. It is one of the 2 known "transcendental numbers".

If i ses 1 it can bee 1.000.000.000.000.000.0

00.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000. End its invenent wait wat ?????
