Default Pi Day '07!

(Yep. I figured I'd beat everyone to it.)

So! It's 3.14. What are you doing at 1:59 local time?

That's right, it's Pi Day again. I baked/bought a pie, but as it's also White Day, I have other things to do, so other than that I'm not celebrating much. Plus I;m bad at math and acknowledging the day exists at all is like twenty geek points.

But! Since Pi Day is upon us, what are you doing for it? Eating round things? Laughing at/making math jokes? Stubbornly denying it?

Happy Pi Day, everyone. Let your love of circles be known.

EDIT: And...it appears to not want to let me delete this so it can be posted in the right forum. Help, anyone? [Done. - Z]

My modly powers do not work in this subfora, unfortunately.

I suppose I didn't do anything pi related today, really, but then, I don't do pi related things most days.

To celebrate pi day, I wore my "Pi A La Mode" T-shirt and took a math test. (The test may have just been a coincidence, but my teacher seemed familiar with pi day, so who knows?) Later on, I'll go to my work where we make pizza (pies).

Incidentally, the pizzas at my work have the same number of slices as their diameter in inches (our six inch pizzas have six slices, our ten inch pizzas have ten slices, etc.). Thus, for example, the circumference of a large pizza divided by the number of slices is: 14 pi in / 14 = pi in. This means that, ignoring small variation in the size and shapes of the pizza, an average slice of our pizza has an arc length of pi. Interesting, no?

At 1:59 I was frantically running to a 2:00 job interview and checking my watch.
