March 14th National Pi Day

Today is National Pi Day! It also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday, born on March 14th 1879. It also happens to be the 3rd month of the year and the 14th day of the month, making it 3.14.

The day was created by Larry Shaw in 1989 while a physicist in San Fransisco, Ca. Congress passed a resolution (HRE224) on March 14th, 2009 declaring it a National Day. You could say it’s a day that just keeps on giving, and giving, and giving. You might say it never ends.

At least someone has turned the equation into a dessert… I understand dessert. Well, at least they put it on the right day, I’ll give them that! In fact, I’ll give them all of it because it just doesn’t matter to me. I don’t think I am going to solve the world’s troubles… but then, I don’t think they are either.

How to celebrate – Have a piece of Pi. See if you can add it all up to mean something. Just forget about it and go back to bed.
