Edit: Could a mentor please change 'Date' to 'Day' in the title? Thanks. :)

I can't believe this... Google doesn't even have a Pi-approximation doodle. They just dropped 10 places in my ranking.

First there's Pi Day. Then there's Pi Approximation Day. I wonder what comes next.

Pi-is-a-fraction Day, but that's only celebrated by crackpots. :tongue2:

Will the year 3141 be approximate pi year?

If 3/14 is Pi-day, then 7/22 should be called (1/Pi)-Approximation day... following the way dates are written in the US.

This is for those of us who celebrate Pi-day on the 31st of April. Essentially, the complement of the US set.

But since there's no 31st of April, I guess we'd have to settle for 30.9999....th of April instead? Also, today will never end...

### robphy

So, 30.999...th of April is really (9.99999....Pi)-day.

Hey guys, get ready: it's almost "Square root of 53 day"!

14. Jul 22, 2007

Oh, and talking about square roots, we can't possibly let the "Square root of 2 day" be forgotten.

Do we also get special pi times? You can only use pi at 3:14 every day.

We can also have an 'e-day'. Look at poor $\imath$, it never gets to have a "day"...unless someone can come up with a clever idea. [No, (I)ndependence Day does not count]
