3.14

Here’s my story……

Today is 3/14/14, take the first three numbers, 314, put a dot in between the 3 and the 1 and what do you get? You get “Pi”. Yep, that’s right. Today is “Pi Day”. What is so significant of this number?

Wikipedia tells it this way:
“Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the U.S. month/day date format), since 3, 1, and 4 are the three most significant digits of π in the decimal form. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.
In the year 2015, Pi Day will have special significance on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m. and p.m., with the date and time representing the first 10 digits of π.
Pi Approximation Day is observed on July 22 (or 22/7 in the day/month date format), since the fraction 22⁄7 is a common approximation of π.

Go out and have some Pi(e). Save some for me, ok?

That’s my story………and I am sticking to it.
