PI Day
« on: March 14, 2013, 07:24:25 PM »
March 14 is PI Day, a worldwide tribute to the mathematical constant (3.14) that is crucial to all disciplines of math and science. I guess it makes sense to celebrate it on 3/14 but it's also Albert Einstein's birthday which is kinda cool.  ;)

I will now retire to my geek cave and enjoy some real pie...   :P  :D
