Re: Happy Pi Day

My school has a math meet today, but I'm not going. There weren't enough kids at my grade level.

Re: Happy Pi Day

Make sure you celebrate with round pie.

Re: Happy Pi Day

Makes one wonder when Pi Day is observed in all the cyan countries, because 31 Apr isn't a real thing.

They celebrate PI day when it should be... the day that the earth has gone Pi radians around the sun
(180 degrees around the sun).

Or you could do 2PI radians so that it could align with FIRSTmas every year.

GMT/Zulu? That's when the ISS crew would do that. OTOH, they're probably longing for pi of any sort when looking into that food locker.

Re: Happy Pi Day

Yes, pi is the golden boy among the irrational numbers, but I think we should all take a moment to appreciate some of the other, equally important irrationals, such as phi or e.
