with pi being the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter...there might be a way to prove it using the same methods used to prove the irrationality of the sqaure root of two...you know, being is how there is an infinity of these ratios, pi wouldn't terminate at a simplist fraction. but who knows, i'm sure someone a lot smarter than me has ruled that out.
