Irrational Building Number Causes Tragedy at Google
Mountain View , CA – What once seemed a harmless, whimsical choice in building numbers, turned a simple call for help into a tragedy. Google numbered its building 0, 1, e and pi to satisfy the intellectual superiority that many Google employees feel. Unfortunately, the county’s 911 system was unable to deal with the irrational numbers and tragedy befell the search engine company.
Operator: "Okay, we'll dispatch a fire truck there immediately. Which building are you in?."
Google: "Building 'pi'."

Tragic indeed; I only hope the caller turns out unharm.
Lesson learnt - there is nothing perfect in this world. We could only try harder.
