Pi Day!

Whew! That was a close one. One of my favorite holidays of the year almost slipped right by me without me knowing. I guess that is what happens when the calendar industry is involved in a conspiracy against it.

March 14 or 3/14. Get it? 3.14. Like the ratio between the diameter and circumference of a circle. Totally awesome.

What is the best way to celebrate Pi Day? Well, first, you gotta eat some pie. Yes, I know it is spelled differently, but I don't questions the traditions that are passed down through the ages. Secondly, you should add one digit to your personal knowledge of pi. If 3.14 is all you know, annex a 15 to the end. For everyone else, here's a helpful start: 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510 (that was from memory, thank you very much, except for the bold 71 that I missed. I guess I am slipping in my old age.)

I meant to ask you last night if you're making a pie this year. My fruit juice sweetened apple pie last year was a hit, but I just don't have the time this year.

what about the other constants holidays? like 2/9 for 2.99792458x10^8, the speed of light? to be celebrated with melted ice cream. or 8/3 for 8.314, the gas constant and celebrate with balloons? or 9/8 for the 9.807 acceleration of gravity and celebrate with juggling? i mean, if you want an excuse to party, don't limit yourself with pi!

Too bad Evan doesn't have an oven in his office. He could finally take a break from all the blog commenting and do something more useful and delicious.

As an alternate time-waster, you could figure out what year pi was calculated to the place of your personal pi knowledge (PPK). That way, if you are one of the few remaining after the global thermonuclear war, you'll be able to estimate how much humanity can catch back up via your PPK.

Man, I'm disappointed Wren, I thought you were hardcore. Any good mathematician and computer scientist knows the only true pi day worth celebrating is OCT 26 07. Figure that one out and drinks are on me.
