It’s Pi Day (3/14), and wonder of wonders, we just happened to remember we did a post about it a couple years ago. Well, we are too lazy to write a new post about it today—and apparently last year we were to lazy to even take the slightest notice. But fortunately for our Many Tens of Loyal Readers™, we are not too lazy to cut and paste some shit from that old post:
Pi, Greek letter (π), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535…
With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating.
The Palace hereby proclaims solidarity with people everywhere who celebrate the important occasion of Pi Day, and proudly takes part in the traditional ritual of consuming pie (of the fruit, custard, chocolate and/or pizza varieties).
I and my fellow geeks the world over cannot wait until March 14, 2015 at 9:26 AM (and 53 seconds). It is going to be so freaking awesome.
