## Pi from pi (external)

It briefly occurred to me last night that pi might be random enough so as to be used as a random number table for a Monte Carlo simulation approximating pi. Looks like Rhett Allain over at Wired had the same idea 4.5 years ago. He used 25,000 samples, which is woefully low for a Monte Carlo simulation, so I’m not sure how much the (obviously lacking) results say about randomness in pi. Nevertheless, it’s a fun idea and a fun read with some graphics illustrating a random distribution vs. the distribution of pi.
