Just to convey what an enlightened community I live in, at 9:26:53 this morning a group of us, led by our resident mathematician, gathered in the library to celebrate Pi Day, that singular moment in historical time, recurring every 100 years, at which the time-and-date corresponds exactly to the first 10 digits of Pi, or π —
π = 3.141592653.... *
There were, of course, celebrations of Pi Day all over the world; I know at many universities and scientific organizations, as noted by the NY Times and surely other publications. I trust most of them, like ours, consumed pies as well.
* Pi, I'd forgotten and relearned this morning, is the number derived by dividing the length of the circumference of a circle by the length of its diameter, so π = C/D.
