Happy PI Day!!!
I celebrate with pie…of course.
I celebrate with a challenge
you know because I ate some pie.
I “would” celebrate by wearing my new Magnum PI Shirt, but silly me ordered late and it’s somewhere in California celebrating PI Day without me 😦
I may celebrate by watching an episode of Magnum PI if it I can find it on Netflix/Hulu, why, because it’s PI Day silly!
“Math nerds likely had already circled today on the calendar, but it’s worth noting this year’s “Pi Day” is a once-in-a-century occurrence.
March 14 — or 3/14 — celebrates the mathematical constant of pi. Pi represents the ratio of circumference of a circle divided by its diameter. While it is often abbreviated as 3.14, pi has an infinite number of digits beyond the decimal point, starting with 3.141592653.

Last year’s Pi Day was one to celebrate since it was 3/14/15, perfectly matching the first numbers past the decimal point of pi. Last year, hardcore math fans even started celebrating the day at exactly 9:26 a.m. and 53 seconds. There’s a big reason to celebrate this year too — math enthusiasts are calling today “Rounded Pi Day.”
When rounding pi to the ten-thousandth (that’s four numbers past the decimal point), it comes out to 3.1416, matching today’s date — March 14, 2016.
And if you need any more reason to geek out about March 14, here’s one: it’s Albert Einstein’s 137th birthday.
