There is a growing movement in certain math circles towards the opinion that π (pi) is wrong. Which is to say, it is the wrong number to be using and we would be better off using a symbol which means 2π, with the current candidate being τ (tau). Don't let this boring abstract put you to sleep; there are fun, informative videos within. Go watch them prove quite handily that π is a problem.
