Sheesh. Anyone impressed by these pyramid number games should look
up the article on "Cyclosophy" in an issue of the Skeptical Inquirer
from a year or two ago. Simple ratios carefully chosen from the
dimensions of almost any object can yield values close to fundamental
constants, or any number you like; throw in measurement errors and
uncertainties on well-worn objects and you can get arbitrary precision.
