A frank appraisal

We definitely have a wiener here: How to Calculate Pi by Throwing Frozen Hot Dogs.

Twenty percent? Depends on which is your basis of measurement. I'd say 25 percent, because I measure the appropriateness of the number of buns by the number of hot dogs to be wrapped in them.

Hmmm. Wait a minute. You're right. It's been so long since I've bothered with standard hot dogs and standard buns that I forgot how many of each come in the standard package.

I am out of touch!
