Lol
3. It's true, did you see the attachment about how to reprogram your calculator with the right value?
4. your exam sheet will tell you what value of π to use .... otherwise just use your calculator button for π
5. Your fears on this matter are totally irrational. The effect radius for this change is sufficiently small, so there's no need to go off on a tangent.
6. is this troll?
7. Nah, everyone knows it's 3.142

The paper tells you what value to use, if it doesn't the calculator has a button

Circular argument
9. The American state of Indiana almost passed a law changing the value of pi to 3.2 once.

Your post, taken in the round, encompasses everything I thought about the matter myself, and fulfils a useful function in allaying fears that may have been produced in mathematical circles.
11. ayyy lmao

That's an unbearable extra, that we could go on about eternally, so let's not give that one any powers of our attention.
15. JUST USE PI ON THE CALCULATOR .... Who told you this cause whoever told you this is well i don't even know but ...
16. Yes it'll change to 3.0 on Sept 2017, to avoid confusion
18. for the win! But no, doesn't change.
19. That would suck considering I know 100 digits of pi
20. Yes, I get emails about pi every so often.
