Pi Day

pi

Today, as you've no doubt heard, is Pi Day. You don't have to be an über-Math Nerd to know what Pi (usually printed as π) is. Here is a brief definition, however, for those who don't:

the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter

It's a magical number that always comes out to approximately 3.14. However, it can be calculated to nearly infinite precision, so listen carefully, and off in the distance, you just might be able to hear some nerds cheering at 1:59 pm today!

While we use the Greek symbol π, usage of the constant goes back at least as far as the builders of the pyramids in Egypt!

Today is also the all-time great Physicist Albert Einstein's birthday and also Billy Crystal's 65th!
