That's not wire guided need more cowbell

9. There is a club event Saturday ...a ride for Pi...took me a minute

10. March 14 (3.14), interestingly enough, is also Einstein's birthday (1879)...

My being a mathematician by training and my wife being a math teacher (retired), Pi Day has always been big around our house.

12. Pi is good as long as you don't have to travel with Richard Parker.

13. ## The ultimate,perfect Pi day

Today at 9:26 and 53 seconds will be the ultimate Pi day:3 14 15 92653. I can't believe the media didn't cover it. To me ,Pi day is much more interesting than Washington politics. My two brothers and I celebrated with a pecan pie (the official pie of Texas). We measured the diameter of the pie and multiplied by 3.141592653. We then divided this by 3 to precisely divide the pie. Unfortunately, we didn't get to do it at 9:26, we were a little bit late. If you missed today's celebration, you can wait a hundred years for the next one.

As one of my Industrial Technology professors in college used to say: Precision is when you measure with a micrometers, mark with chalk, and cut it with a chainsaw.

Not to rain on all math nerd's parade, but an enormous amount of 'Kentucky Windage' had to be taken to rationalize today's significance.

How convenient that when dissecting 3.141592653, that we leave off the first two digits of the calendar year. We simply ignore things like 1715 or 1815 or 2015 and just make use of the '15' in order to make this work.

That kind of "moldable Playdough logic" doesn't sit well in purist math circles.

So, while "Pi Day" can certainly be celebrated each and every year our race still adheres to the Julian Calendar, the ultra-cool sequence of 3.141592653 happened only once in human history - in the year 15 A.D.
