Happy Pi(e) Day!

Submitted by david.rockwood on

Today's date is 3/14 . . . Happy Pi(e) Day! For true die hard Pi Day fans, be sure to do something pie-related or circle-y at exactly 1:59, thus creating the first 6 digits of pi: 3.14159.

Fun fact, 3/14 is also Albert Einstein's birthday.

Extra fun fact, the world record for reciting, from memory and in order, the digits of pi is held by Rajveer Meena who recited over 70,000 digits, blindfolded, from memory. It took 10 hours.
