hey! it’s march 14th, or 3/14 or 3.14 of you want to get fancy. whichever way you slice the date, it all adds up to PI DAY!!!need a refresher on what pi is? well, according to pi-apedia, “π is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of any Euclidean circle’s circumference to its diameter.”
i like to think about pi this way:
if you’re crust deep into pi, you might not agree today is really pi day. cuz according to pi-apedia (it’s a really good site!), “what some call “Real Pi Day” will be celebrated on March 14th, 2015 at 9:26:53 AM. These numbers (3/14/15, 9:26:53) correspond with the first 10 digits of pi (3.141592653).” ok, nitpickers, the rest of us will go pi-pie-cuckoo today.
something that isn’t in doubt is that today is also…EINSTEIN’S B-DAY! basically march 14th should be dubbed CRAZY SCIENCE DAY.
you might be wondering, who created pi day?
no matter what, make sure you get a piece of something sweet - could be pi for pi day or cake for einstein’s b-day. these are both relevant choices.
