It is said that just 7 digits of Pi would be enough to make a sphere as smooth as a ball bearing, the size of the Earth.  Math is more nerdy.

Math is ALWAYS nerdy.  If you CAN calculate it, you should.  And even if you can't.

If neo-Pythagoreans are half wrong, does that mean they are half right?

Bingo ... if you have H3 etc.

If I measure my thumb, as 1 inch long (when it is 2 inches long) I am half right, half wrong.  Or just don't give a shit to be accurate.

Well, you COULD half wrong AND half wrong again.  But the implication is half of both.

Neo-Pythagoreans may be half-wits, but half a wit is better than none! LOL

Um, maybe.  But half-wit is sort of pre-Gallileic thinking.  Maybe Brunistic.
