Today is Pi (π) Day, March 14th (3.14) and technically at 1:59pm we celebrate.
As arbitrary celebration days go I like this one a lot. Not only is it geeky but it is just as irrational as Christmas, Easter and all those other arbitrary days that we all choose to celebrate on a regular, yet arbitrary, basis. It is also a day of transcendental reflection as it’s a transcendental number.
It is also Einstein’s birthday.
How shall I spend my Pi (π) day?
Eating pie, of course, and making up a Pi-Ku.
How I wish I could,
Calculate Pi around round,
And never finished.
