### Re: 1275: "int(pi)"

!+[]+!+[]+!+[] is 3 in javascript. Also, Astronomers often take pi to be 3 (or even sometimes 1) and pi^2 to be 10 when dealing with large numbers (the kind where you want the order of magnitude to be within an order of magnitude (wrap you're head around that!))

### Re: 1086: "Eyelash Wish Log"

### Re: 0851: "Na"

For me, NA first meant Nondeterministic Automaton; it being a directed graph with multiple branches and no labels. Usually though, it's NDA not NA, and then I saw batman, and it clicked.

### Re: "Dirty Harry" Discussion

That reminds me of the matrix #1 when they walk into the first floor of the tall building and there's that long drawn out gun fight. I remember someone commenting "hey these guns actually run out of bullets... They just don't run out of guns"
