And the point of numbers like pi and e that have no end is for precision. 3x5=15. pix5=18.85.
I think you meant 6π. And even then, it's 18.84955592... etc etc etc.
But yeah, precision is now getting more important nowadays.
EDIT: π is still used to find the diameter if you know only the circumference.
But still, there's still something wrong there.

Oh wait, American fundamentalist lawmakers. It might just be true after all.
Betcha it's false though.
Hmm... wait... This looks like a really old joke
