Happy Pi Day

March 14th is a special, geeky day meant to celebrate the number pi (3/14, 3.14, get it?).  How could we properly quantify the beauty of a circle without it?  It keeps us grounded by framing the insignificance of our daily troubles with its never-ending decimal places.

So go out and hug 3.14 friends today.  Reach out with a phone call to the person who has been the most (mathematically) constant in your life.  Eat a pie, be it one for dessert or a pizza or pot pie for dinner.  And join me in shouting out for the glory that is pi the appropriate number of times.

Hip, hip, hooray!

Hip, hip, hooray!

Hip, hip, hooray!


(That should be approximately 3.1415926535 times)
