Last year on March 14 we celebrated the Moment of Pi.
3.141592653 = 3/14/15 9:26.53
This year we can celebrate Rounded Pi Day.
3.1416 = 3/14/16
Of course I cringe a bit at rounding Pi to only four digits.
But we do know that pies are rounded and not squared, or are they? πr²
This evening I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few pies for tomorrows special day. Here is a nice apple pie that I will take to work for dessert after lunch or perhaps just an afternoon snack.
There are more pie pictures in my post Happy Pi Day.
You can read more about my Einstein memories in my post Happy Pi Day II.
Yesterday I wrote a post about Giving One Back which was about losing an hour due to DST. Since I have been thinking about dates and calendars and the differences around the world it also made me think of another π related day.
If you are using the most common data format you are more likely to celebrate Pi Approximation Day. Do you know what day it is celebrated on?
In most of the world the date for tomorrow is written as 14/3/16. It is not so easy to see pi in this format. However, with July 22 written as 22/7 you can easily see that it is Pi Approximation Day.
Are you doing anything special for Pi Day?
