American Pi: US Population Hit 314 Million People

Americans celebrate Pi Day on March 14 (3/14), but earlier this week on August 14, we celebrate something kind of related:

Just after 2:29 p.m. EDT today, the American population reached 314,159,265, or pi (3.14159265) times 100 million, according to the Census Bureau's population clock.

"This is a once in many generations event ... so go out and celebrate this American pi," demographer Howard Hogan said in a statement from the Census Bureau.
