in reply to Constants you cannot help but remember

Just a few ...

  • Speed of light is ππππ picoparsecs per ππ Pluto periods
  • or one foot per nanosecond
  • π x 107 seconds in a year
  • 2n for n = 0, 1, ... , 16
  • Prime numbers < 100
  • ASCII < 127
  • And some of the stuff in Perl Special Variables Quick Reference

If anyone needs me I'll be in the Angry Dome.
