Pi Day definitely deserves a little more hoopla this year. But if you forget to celebrate, you'll simply have to wait for 3.14 in the year 2115!

You Americans and your crazy date format.
Proper Pi day is of course 31.4.15!

Oh, wait...

I have a friend who took his big annual vacation (always to the same resort destination) on 6/6/06, 7/7/07, 8/8/08, 9/9/09, 10/10/10, 11/11/11, and then 12/12/12. Actually, he may have started the pattern earlier, in 2001 to 2005, but I forget. Once the months ran out at 12, he gave up the pattern, which was a bit of a relief because he could start choosing the season when he wanted to go on vacation, rather than having the date choose it for him!

I don't know. His therapist was on vacation, which she takes every time the day number within the year is a Mersenne prime!

That's the kind of vacation time I could use!

I would suggest declining such a vacation package in favor of something more generous.

Looks like they have a number of alternatives. This one does look like the nicest though.

Edit: Ordered this bad boy

I like that one also. Graphics are conspicuous at distance. But it could spell trouble if I get tempted to rob a convenience store.

Rob a pie shop and you'll be sure to get on the evening news!
