Parenthetically SpeakingTwo tips: 1) 8675309 is not just prime, it's a twin prime, and 2) if you ever find yourself raising log(anything)^e or taking the pi-th root of anything, set down the marker and back away from the whiteboard; something has gone horribly wrong.
FYIIn some cases, the examples given are derived (sort of) from real life, but speculating that the these fundamental constants pi and e are connected to what is approximated.
For example, Jenny's Constant is approximately 867.53090198 ... For more, see Tommy Tutone on YouTube or, for even more information, dig into 867-5309/Jenny on Wikipedia.
