Check this out:



One of the most intricate crop circles ever found in Britain has been discovered.

It has appeared in a barley field in the Wiltshire countryside and has baffled mathematicians.

The geometric pattern shows a perfectly coded image which represents the complex first ten digits of pi - 3.141592654.

If you check out the arcs starting at the center and taking a whole circle to be equal to 10 you can see that the length of the arc corresponds to the digits of pi. And there is even a dot after the first arc to signify the decimal point.

Sorry thats not a great explanation, I'll draw something else up to demonstrate

I thought it was pretty cool, what do you guys think? is this just a really elaborate hoax?

I'm sure it is a hoax, by some incredibly smart people.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Its obviously a hoax, but damn, making that accurate of a circle takes serious skill.

Who would go through the time, effort and planning to achieve next to nothing.I don't see how you could gain fun out of making a crop circle.

Ok, they now have a reason to do it.
But to do that for free you'd have to have some problems to do with what you consider a "fun" hobby.

90% of all the crop circles are done by people who later on confess it with video or picture proof (cause you know.... 13 hours of stepping on some corn fields needs to be given credit for).
Although, there are 10% of crop circles that are so accurate and so amazingly done that it would be very difficult for people to do, so..... you know.... There are some weird **** in this world, crop circles might as well be one of them.

You seem to know alot about this topic. Perhaps you are one of these 90%. I hope you are paid well.

Here's where i got this from: http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/article.html?in_article_id=181169&in_page_id=2

And the rest of the article:

The circle, found near Barbury Castle, is approximately 150 feet in diameter.

Astrophysicist Mike Reed has said: “I noticed a photo of the Barbury Castle pattern.

“It shows a coded image representing the first ten digits of Pi - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter.

“The tenth digit has even been correctly rounded up. The little dot near the centre is the decimal point.

"The code is based on ten angular segments, with the radial jumps being the indicator of each segment,” the Daily Mail reported.

This may cause more controversy in the debate whether crop circles are a result of extraterrestrial activity.

why wouldnt you write Pi in the form of a crop circle in a huge barley field?

Just one thing: the pattern's not necessarily out of the ordinary, considering pi originates from circles.

There's this thing called "The Discovery Channel" where it shows various documentaries... One of those documentaries was about crop circles..

And besides, I don't live in America and we don't have 1.000.000.000 acres of corn fields throughout our land so it's hard for me to do it you see.

Music is great fun. Art is some peoples preferances/personal gain/profit.

Crop circles are just. . .

Need I say it?

Don't worry Necrolust, your secrets safe with me. I don't mind that you like to make crop circles.

There have been times when this group have been paid by a newspaper to make a crop circle so that the newspaper can print a pic of it on the front page saying "ALIENS!" when there's little news.
