    Well, like its says in the thread intro 'Are crop-circles science or are they hokum?

    The most complex, "mind-boggling" crop circle ever to be seen in Britain has been discovered in a barley field in Wiltshire.

    The circle is a coded representation of pi to the 10th significant figure. The formation, measuring 150ft in diameter, is apparently a coded image representing the first 10 digits, 3.141592654, of pi. It is has appeared in a field near Barbury Castle, an iron-age hill fort above Wroughton, Wilts, and has been described by astrophysicists as "mind-boggling".

    Michael Reed, an astrophysicist, said: "The tenth digit has even been correctly rounded up. The little dot near the centre is the decimal point. "The code is based on 10 angular segments with the radial jumps being the indicator of each segment. "Starting at the centre and counting the number of one-tenth segments in each section contained by the change in radius clearly shows the values of the first 10 digits in the value of pi."

    Lucy Pringle, a researcher of crop formations, said: "This is an astounding development - it is a seminal event."

    Mathematics codes and geometric patterns have long been an important factor in crop circle formations. One of the best known formations showed the image of a highly complex set of shapes known as The Julia Set, 12 years ago.

    I have my own views on crop circles. If you read down the page here, you will see reference to 'Two crop circles have appeared near Wilmington in previous years. The first in 1990, the second in 1995' and 'Formation found west of the village of Wilmington July 1990 at map ref TQ543045'

    Which just happens to be in the field next door to where my best mate lived and we were having a huge party that night....... (20 drunken people, some rope and boards, you get the idea :unsure: ) It faced the Long Man and got quite a bit of coverage in the papers with people claiming ancient lay lines etc.

    We got a rollicking and had to pay the farmer for the damaged crop :doh:

    OMG! That was you! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    We were digging just down the road at Beddingham and got really annoyed cos someone had beaten us to it (someone working with us had been involved in several of the big west country ones and fancied his chances with one next to the Wilmington Long Man).

    I remember that year so well...how funny!
