Congratulations numerologists, circle aficionados and math
geeks enthusiasts everywhere!
That's right, it's Pi Day. For the journalism majors with us, Pi = 3.14 ad infinitum, thus, it's celebrated on March 14th. Personally, I always liked it best when expressed as 22/7. What a rebel!
Pi is an irrational number which means it will continue infinitely without repeating. And talk about its feelings during sporting events. Hiyo! Kidding. Kinda.
Just because you've never used that algebra shoved down your throat during high school, that doesn't make Pi any less important. Where would you be without knowing how to calculate the ratio of a circle to its diameter. Oh, right. Exactly where you are right now.So hurry and finish getting the tree up and wrapping your presents for Pi Day. Or maybe even write a Pi-ku. It's like a haiku, but they've apparently completely forgotten the 5-7-5 syllable requirements.
Man, I just long for the old days when Pi Day really meant something and they'd sacrifice a virgin for the crops.
Here's a much better Pi-Ku:
Me, I'm just going to eat some. Ala mode. Which is French for "with mode."
