The 3-berry pie at the Village Inn Restaurant in Iowa City, Iowa. It had blueberry, raspberry, and boysenberry. If I could lick the plate and not embarrass myself, I would have!

It is, but Greg is hungry, and when he sees "pi", he immediately thinks of "pie".

Besides, pie is tastier than pi.

Hey did anyone realize that next year pi day will be 3/14/15...the first 5 digits of pi! Then the year after it will be the value of pi rounded to the 5th decimal place (3/14/16). I think that's it after that one, its like one of those rare astronomical events that happens once in a lifetime.

We better savor it...the pie that is :biggrin:. I don't know what to do about pi...I'll find some circles and calculate their geometric properties :uhh:

Are there any moronic groups out there predicting some earth-destroying, human-kind-wiping catastrophes for those dates? If there aren't any, I'd like to start one.

I remember the first couple of word-length mnemonics I learnt about pi:
"How I wish I could calculate pi"
"How I like a drink, alcoholic of course,
after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics"

Pizza! :!!)
There's a pizza place that recently opened for business nearby called "Pieology." With such a cool name you would think that they would throw a [itex] \pi [/itex] into their logo, or at least have a pizza volume diagram* in the restaurant somewhere. But alas, no; they don't seem to acknowledge [itex] \pi [/itex] at all. :cry:

*(If you have a pizza of radius z, and depth a, the volume of the pizza is πz2a, or expressing it a different way,
V = pi·zz·a.)

What not another one? My wife and I used to go to a Village Inn that recently closed. I don't think that they ever won over the younger generation. Every time my son went there to eat with us he would say: "this is like eating in a nursing home."

I did noticed that he always finished his piece of French silk pie, however.

"It has been heard", "people are saying", "the word going around is", On those dates a cataclysmic moon size pie in the sky will appear.

Note that I included three sources used frequently on Fox news so it must be true.:devil:

Then that is what we should use to spread the news about the calamity that will fall on us next year on pi day! As simple as that! We start with something that says that there's impending forecast that day where it will be overcast, with a chance of pi in the sky.

There's a chain of pizzerias in the St. Louis area that has pi in their name and logo, at least:

Pi Pizzeria

I'll have to try to remember to check it out if I ever I drive through that area again.

We have some clever young engineers here at work. Our project group received this e-mail just before 2PM from three of them:

3.14 1:59. Pie & Ice cream in the Pantry by the printer. Enjoy.
:biggrin:
