Math Number Pi and Wording Limericks Contributed by Terry Walsh

'Tis a favourite project of mine,
A new value of pi to assign.
I would fix it at 3,
For it's simpler, you see,
Than 3 point 1 4 1 5 9
There was a young girl from Rabat,
who had triplets, Nat, Pat and Tat;
It was fun in the breeding,
But hell in the feeding,
When she found she had no tit for Tat.

Construction on Boats

The initial excitement
sailing the ocean, the ship's
starting materials are bamboo
or wooden raft, that
is basic and firm enough
to stay afloat.
It's awkward to force
someone to believe the rule
of bouyance when one
is as young as a juvenile-
very good to know later:
Sleekening the hull,
turning things
neater and more comfortable...
