No, not that delicious pie that you eat, but pi. You know,

 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679... The one that goes on forever and ever. Yes that one. Pi is used for two things, finding the circumference of a circle, and for small competitions to see who could recite the most numbers and get a prize. The way you use pi is by multiplying it by the circle's diameter, giving you the circumference of the circle, which is impossible to measure without pi. Pi was invented by Sir Isaac Newton, who calculated the number 3.1416 to get the circumference of a circle. Later on ,after computers were invented, the number was actually calculated to be longer, than as later and later computers came out, the number just kept going and going, turning out to be much longer than first anticipated. Pi goes on forever, never stopping. The number above is just a mere piece of pi (Hahahaha, pi pun!). Thanks to Sir Isaac Newton, we found a way to entertain ourselves and figure the circumference of a circle.
