    Would now be a good time to restart the debate about whether we should pass legislation redifining [tex]\pi=22/7[/tex]? ;)

    Cexy -

    That's a wonderful suggestion. Because politicians have trouble handling bodily functions on their own, having them mandate transcendental numbers like [tex]e[/tex] and [tex]\pi[/tex] would be lots of fun....
    since "pi are round" we can ask them to round [tex]\pi = 3.0[/tex] That's close enuff. :)

    Watching that made me a little bit stupider.

    You all overlooked 15 hours, 92 minutes and 65.358... seconds - a slice of the pi.

    Why is today called Pi Day? A few of my friends were invited to a day of math at one of the schools in our area, but I wasn't invited, and I was wondering why "Pi" has it's own day.

    I guess since the value of pi is approx. 3.14. And since today just happens to be March 14th (3.14), its called pi day.

    (rounded up '3' from the '6')

    According to Wikipedia,
    "The "ultimate" pi moment occurred on March 14, 1592, at 6:53 AM and 58 seconds."
