Pie in The Sky

Blog readers in places like St Helena and Outer Mongolia, and I know you are out there, may have missed yesterday's local news story about the meat-and-potato pie which was sent into space from Wigan, Lancashire:

It went up on a weather balloon yesterday at noon I think, rose 20 miles into space and landed in the village of Low Bentham, quite near Settle.   The on-board camera pictures were amazing.

It had been tracked using GPS and pie charts probably.

Since its epic journey the pie's value has increased to £3.14159

It's this sort of nonsense that makes Britain Great.

  1. I put this on Twitter and nobody reacted. Then somebody re-Tweeted it. I was beginning to wonder if anybody out there in the Twittersphere was awake or had paid attention in maths lessons!


Do please leave comments. If nothing else it shows that there is somebody out there.
