Happy Pi Day!

Wednesday, March 14, 2007
Another holiday approaches. Much like fall's Talk Like A Pirate Day, spring (or nearly spring) has its own day: Pi Day.

Yes, it's 3/14 and - at 1:59 PM - there shall be a loud rejoicing by those math geeks among us. For those of you that AREN'T fans of Pi (and I'm not talking about the excellent movie) it's simply the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it's diameter. That is, for any given circle, its circumference is (roughly) 3.14159265 times its diameter. If you have a circle with a diameter of 1 meter, the circumference will be (roughly) 3.14159265 meters. It's that nifty?
