    Hey guys, just to let you know, we (at school) ate pies today. haha :D it wasn't a calculated coincidence.

    Today's 14 March = US date format 3/14, AKA, 3.14...

    Enjoy (even though it's now 8:51pm local, there's still half the world still πing :)

    Sir, I send a rhyme excelling
    In sacred truth and rigid spelling
    Numerical sprites elucidate
    For me the lexicon's full weight.

    3.1415...

    At my kids school, they have an annual pi-memorization contest. My daughter's best friend (a ninth grader) broke the school record, with over 600 digits.

    My daughter, ever-practical, learned enough digits to get extra credit in math class: 20.

    I appreciate thy rhyme;
    'twere not a waste of time.
    My mathematical mind suggests
    knowledge is what it ingests.

    enjoy 3.14.

    certainly, even though 'tis round, we proclaim it as "pie are squared".

    Pi(e) is not in not a part of the equation in my diet.

    Okay, you may shoot me now. :p

    Some people talk about eating pie today, especially square pies. Where does one find a square pie?

    Also, if anyone want to be very geeky, go to Little Ceasar's Pizza and get one of their Square Pizza (Pie).

    apparently too bad no ladies desire to discuss their 3.14's.

    On a sheet of paper with a pencil, how does one find Pi?

    If you have a perfect circle, it's the diameter divided by three... right? But on paper how is it done?

    This is usually the type of thing that Q will make a thread for, so I'm a bit surprised he didn't start it this time.

    That's lovely :) ... but the original rhyme is a way of remembering Pi, rather than 1-10-3... ;)

    Melrose-
    (Pi)D= C
    So it's C/D.

    I missed it in 1593, so I guess 2015 might be a little bit closer to the real thing.
