A new bill, sponsored by Alabama Congresswoman Martha Roby, is going up before Congress - HR 205, The Geometric Simplification Act, which declares the Euclidean mathematical constant of pi to be precisely 3. Here's a blurb from the article:
"That long-held empirical value of pi, I am not saying it should be necessarily viewed as wrong, but 3 is a lot better," said Roby, the 34-year old legislator representing Alabama's second congressional district, ushered into office in the historic 2010 Republican mid-term bonanza.

Pi has long been defined as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius, a mathematical constant represented by the Greek letter "π," with a value of approximately 3.14159. HR 205 does not change the root definition, per se. The bill simply, and legally, declares pi to be exactly 3.
There's a terrific quote from Obama in the story as well - read the whole thing here. And if you haven't figured out by now that the article is satirical, you're either Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann. On second thought, they wouldn't read a blogging site that has anything to do with science or fact. Or read. Well, whoever you are, get a sense of humor. Credit goes to Huffpost Comedy.
