How To calculate π with a Pumpgun

Aus irgendeinem Grund hab' ich diese π-Story hier letztes Jahr verpasst, das Paper dazu trägt den wunderbaren Titel A Ballistic Monte Carlo Approximation of π.

Vincent Dumoulin and Félix Thouin […] worked out how to calculate an approximate value of π using the distribution of pellets from a Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun, which they assume would be widely available in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
