On the Wisdom of Lawmakers

In 1897 the state of Indiana almost passed a law, that would have changed the value of Pi to 3.2 while at the same time approving a method of squaring the circle. The House Education Committee had endorsed the bill and the House then unanimously passed it on February 5. Due to the unfortunate intervention of Mathematics Professor Clarence Abiathar Waldo, it didn't pass the Senate though. Just imagine, how much easier things would be...

Numberphile has a video on this:

As real as life itself. Certainly not my case, but I've seen this happening in a lot of places.
