## Happy Pi Day

The way I figure it, the big moment is in 21 minutes:
3.141592 = 3/14 15:92 = 16:32 = 4:32 PM.

But I don't have any pie.

there's always pizza pie

4. Given that Pi Day coincides with Steak and Blowjob Day, perhaps one could combine the two observances and have steak pie?

Wiki sez: The most commonly used times are:
3/14 [0]1:59
3/14 15:[0]9

But!
"The "ultimate" pi moment[1] occurred on March 14, 1592, at 6:53 AM and 58 seconds. When written in American-style date format, this is 3/14/1592 6:53.58."

And don't forget the approximations!

It would be better if it were round.

And easier to digest if it were rounded.

:-p

I think the joke there is that "pie are squared".

When I was in 8th grade (first year of high school here in Oz) we sat our maths exam in the maths room and the teacher was a very mathematical kind of guy. He had a big long poster up along two walls, about a foot high and twenty or thirty feet long, with pi to the seventy-fourth decimal place written on it.

I finished my maths exam disgracefully quickly and had over an hour left to burn, so I memorized it. To this day (nearly twenty years later) I can tell you it's 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781640628...

It's a good party trick, if you're one of those people who embraces their geekiness :)

Hmm... see, I went with 3/14 at 1:59. I wasn't awake at the AM version, so opted to ignore the 24 hour clock in favour of staying awake at work.

awfully mean of me to be such a pedant, but that's technically 3.141593, to that many SF, as the 26 rounds upwards.
