Pi day and square root day
« on: March 03, 2009, 09:37:16 PM »
Wikipedia reveals that we have just lived through one of the only square root days in the century - and that Pi Day is coming up soon.

Pi day cries out for an in-world event.

Vibia doing a karaoke version of the Pi Song, maybe  :P

It was pointed out to me today that it's really American Pi day - because it's 3.14, rather than 14.3 - which wouldn't make any sense.

This was associated with the theory that the song is called American Pi because, just like Pi, it goes on forever....  :P

Just found this excellent web page on how to calculate pi by throwing food around the house/classroom

Wonder if it really works?
