An old April Fool's day article I found amusing:

"On the Ratio of Circumference to Diameter for the Largest Observable Circles: An Empirical Approach"

arxiv.org/abs/1204.0298

Finally, an applied approach to Euclidean geometry.

@mwt it quickly gets non-Euclidean for the largest observable circles, doesn't it?

@JordiGH I can't be sure since I don't understand the paper. It requires a deep understanding of vanilla parameters that I (unfortunately) do not possess.
