Happy Pi Day!

March 14th (3/14) is National Pi Day, as officially designated by the US congress this year. Traditional festivities are to study the mathematical constant pi in school (which took place yesterday since 3/14 fell on Saturday this year), bake and eat a pie, and sing Pi Day Carols. Evil Mad Scientist Laboraties constructed a Pi Pie Trivet for the occasion, and posted instructions for making your own. Link

Pi is irrational number, and there are so-many approximate formula it. Unfortunately until 2500 years after archimedes we don't still know what is the exact formula for the pi, so we only celebrate it as pi day.

Pi day, while amusing, is also an instance of North American triumphalism. Everywhere else in the world we use the much more sensible day/month/year system, meaning that Pi day would fall on the 31st of April (which admittedly isn't, but that's not the point). Like 11/9.
