Happy Pi Day!

Posted by Richard on March 14, 2008

March 14 is not just Albert Einstein's birthday. It's celebrated by many math fans and mathematicians as Pi Day. March 14, 3.14 — get it?

The more precision-minded speak of Pi Minute — 3/14, 1:59 — or even Pi Second — 3/14, 1:59:26. And in Europe, where the standard date format is the more logical day/month/year instead of month/day/year, they celebrate Pi Approximation Day on July 22 — that is, 22/7.

Celebrate Pi Day tonight with a pizza for dinner. Or maybe a slice of Dutch Apple for dessert.

    I was hoping someone would post cleverly on this. My hopes have been realized!
