Happy Pi Day

If you haven't noticed, today is Pi Day. (I never would have, but RFB works as an actuary and gets excited over number type things.)

Pi Day, you ask?

3.14 is the date and a close approximation of Pi.

I'm told that at 1:59 pm, at places like MIT and CalTech they eat pie. (3.14159 is an even closer approximation of Pi.)

I've posted this too late for the Eastern time zone, but for any of you in the Central, Mountain or Pacific time zones, please have a slice of pie for Pi Day at 1:59.

If you're in the Eastern time zone, go ahead and have the pie anyway. It's never the wrong time for a slice of Pi.

LOL. I'm more of a cake person myself, but that doesn't really have any math in it. So I'll celebrate with pi! Thanks for the heads up, David! :)

Oh goody, an excuse to eat pie. Nuttin' like a hot piece of pie. However, I was not given enuff heads up time to prepare. My bod thanks you for that, since I dont really need Pi or Pie. Think I will hold out for 4/20 at 4:20 instead....thats not fattening.
