(A customer is looking at a hose that is tapered at one end and has a plug at the other so you can’t measure a cross-section)
Me: Wrap the measuring tape around the pipe, if it comes out as 3.14” then it is indeed 1” diameter.
Customer: What?
Me: If you divide the circumference by Pi you get the diameter. Pi goes on forever but it starts with 3.14.
(Both the customer and a colleague were stunned by this)
