i had 2/π of a pizza, to honor the ratio.

Next year will be more significant. I'm just not impressed with three places after the decimal point.

Hmmm... I'd consider one slice of pizza to be pi/4 of a pizza (but also pie/8; so pie = 2pi).

Next year will be more significant. I'm just not impressed with three places after the decimal point.

But the year after that will be an even better approximation.

Only if you truncate the year. Otherwise, we haven't really been good since 1592. And it is only going to get worse....

I bought a recipe book that is all pies, nothing but pies, and I have been working my way through it. The strawberry/raspberry, blueberry custard pie was a hit, and very pretty. The apple/pear pei with a praline crust was yummy for Christmas. When summer comes, I will try out some of the icecream pies. I enjy making something completely frivolous.

I heard Microsoft, Samsung, and Betty Crocker are involved in a all out legal slugfest involving the patent rights to pi. Is that true?

Maybe it was the genome version. It's so confusing.

So I'm going to have a cheeseburger with a Manhattan on the side.

Speaking of missing airliners, has anybody here read Lost Horizon, the 1933 James Hilton novel?

I was going to dress up as Euler for Pi Day, but I was afraid I'd be accused of trying to steal Euler's identity.

Tony P., admittedly I only watched the movie (in the reconstructed form with at least the audio track complete though with some scenes missing in video).
