Pi Day

Happy Pi Day!

An obscure, unappreciated day.

Pi is the:

Circumference(of a circle)/diameter

It's the number that can't be resolved that goes on and on and on and on and on and on.........................

Pi, a mathematical constant and all it represents, is lost upon most of us. That's a shame. The facts and trivia about Pi are fascinating.

Pi gives an example of infinite.

Cool as that is, Pi gets little street cred.



We should embrace the pun.

Pi day is ignored by business.

Pi day is only known to nerds.

Schools ignore Pi Day. (What a tie in! Serve pie and teach math!)

Pie serving restaurants should be all over Pi Day.

The White House could make a big deal about pie on Pi Day to promote education.

Chuck Todd could feature pie instead of soup on Pi Day to make himself relevant.

No. That doesn't happen.

Pi gets little notice.

Too much sugar, I suppose.

There's cool facts about March 14 (3.14)

Albert Einstein was born on 3.14

There's a geeky Pi joke:

If you divide the circumference of the sun by its diameter, what will you have?

Pi in the sky!



So, what pie are you buying, making or serving today?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
