In the book The Joy Of Pi, by David Blatner, he inserts an
anonymous statement:What is pi?

  Mathematician: Pi is the number expressing the
relationship between the

  circumference of a circle and its diameter.

  Physicist: Pi is 3.1415927 plus or minus
0.000000005.

  Engineer: Pi is about 3.
  Point well taken. 1 Kings 7:23 says nothing about
the theoretical value of pi. It just states that a line of thirty cubits
went around a ten cubit vessel.The circumference of the vessel described in 1 Kings 7:23 was precisely
30 cubits, which comes down to about thirty arm-lengths of a medium
seized gentleman. The diameter of the vessel was precisely 10 cubits,
which comes down to ten arm-lengths of the same or some other gentleman.
The ratio between the two was exactly 3. From an engineering point of view, this simply means that with great flexibility, the two men might have been able to shake hands.
