Nerds of the world are celebrating our annual nerd-o-rama, Pi Day. Have a great one.

Why do we need a symbol for $\displaystyle \frac \tau 2$? June 28 is the right date for celebration!

But we can at least celebrate Einstein's birthday.

Nerds of the United States, Belize and Micronesia (and maybe some Canadians), apparently. The rest of us have to wait until 22 July.

Goodness! You youngsters!
We still celebrate pi day on 22nd of July.

(Of course, in UK Monday was 14/3 and we don't get a 31/4, so your pi day is a bit of a mystery to us.)

Yeah, that's me. But the 22nd of July is Pi Approximation Day . . . a totally different holiday

And 3/14 is spot on?
Actually I think 22/7 is nearer than 3/14 by about 3.28 x 10-4, but 3/142016 is closer.

You could celebrate on 3/14 at 1:59:27, that is pretty accurate (or :26 if you prefer correct digits over rounding).

True, but that's just what people call it, so I go with it.
