Pi (π) vs Tau (τ)

Postby Ceolophysia » Wed Mar 14, 2018 11:08 am

Since it is Pi day, I thought it would be fitting to make a versus thread of using Pi/π (the ratio of a circle's diameter and circumference: 3.141592…) or Tau/τ (the ratio of a circle's radius and circumference: 2π or 6.283185…) to measure circles.

Links to help you understand what this is about:
The Tau Manifesto
The Pi Manifesto

Starting at 500,
Add +1 for π
Subtract -1 for τ
If it reaches 1000, π wins
If it reaches 0, τ wins

I will go first: 501

The Imperial Federation of Hinodia"Lux Invicta!"

A federation in Northeast Asia born from the ashes of a corrupt empire, currently led by the reformist Imperatrix Akatsuki von Alterz. Once a heavily ethnocentric and militaristic state, the Imperial Federation has begun to liberalize to better solve the problems that face it in the modern day.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” - C.S. Lewis

This nation is a convoluted shithole because I don't know how to make it much of anything else.
An observation: Most people with low self-esteem have earned it.
O.O.C.: I don't know how most of this works yet, and sometimes I just don't want to. Any other time, feel free to send a telegram.
