Yup. Torturing my kid again. This is his calculus homework that he was supposed to be doing at the time. Which had absolutely nothing to do with pi, at this point. Looks like it was half lifes and exponential growth based questions.

I had a kick out of thinking of a person cheating on a test, yet being dumb enough to think they needed to write out pi as far as they could to do it.

It was only mild torture. I thought about using a sharpie, but since he had calc and physics the next day, I didn't think it was a good idea going into class with something written on your arm. Even if it was just pi.

Eye Liner. Obviously. Though it's hard to write well and small with eyeliner. Plus it smears and breaks off in chunks.

By the way, it I forgot "other". It's supposed to say "continued on other hand". That would have made more sense.

It's not the most interesting of photos. But seriously... I love pi! But how do you get an interesting pi photo?

I did kick around an idea of throwing a pi into someones face. They would be holding a sign saying pi=3.15 -- they would have a pie thrown in their face. And the title would be "Wrong!!" No one seemed interested in helping me out with that photo.

And my kid was finding it difficult to do his homework while I was making him move his hand around (as opposed to tucking it under his chin.)

Anyway, not the most enthralling photo. But it does seem like a different POV or different lighting might make it better, somehow. Feel free to kibbutz (wait... that's a settlement in Israel... how do you spell the word?? Wait, here it is: kibitz. But is says to offer unwelcome advice? I thought it was just talking it over and discussing options. Crap. I've been using it wrong all this time.) and let me know how you'd have changed it.

Thanks for the comment!! I was afraid that I was going for a zero comment on this one, but you helped me pull it out last minute! Whoot!

Hilarious! I bet it took longer to write than to shoot it :)
