There are a few numerical days a year that we here at OWC really like to geek out over … well some of us do. And today just happens to be one of those special days.
Today is March 14 or 3/14, which of course, is Pi Day!
For those who don’t know, pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and is approximately equal to 3.1415. (Pi is an irrational number and actually has been calculated to over 10 trillion digits).
But while today’s date is always a cool date among math enthusiasts and Darren Aronofsky buffs, next year is the truly special Pi Day. At 9:26:53 a.m. and p.m. on March 14, 2015, for two awesomely nerdy seconds that day, Pi Day will extend to ten digits (3.141592653). Which is exactly seven more digits than I can ever be troubled to remember.
So celebrate Pi Day with a fancy new t-shirt, or by sneaking out to your local diner for a nice piece of triple berry pi pie.
Just please don’t bother spending it memorizing impossibly long numbers…
