  • Happy Pi Day!

    March 15, 2011

  • I have a non-existent one, if you'd like to borrow it.

    March 24, 2010

  • I would, but sheep don't have mustaches.

    March 18, 2010

  • But please keep twirling your mustache.

  • I used to scoff at Pi Approximation Day. "Twenty-two sevenths?", I'd laugh, while twirling my mustache. "Don't make me laugh!"

    It has since been pointed out to me, though, that "3.14", without any subsequent digits, is actually farther from the true value of pi than 22/7 is. This means that we are the approximators, and you guys who celebrate in July are much closer to the Platonic form of pi.

    Boy, do I feel sheepish.

  • Damn! How did I miss that one?

    March 18, 2010

  • There's always Pi Approximation Day on July 22.

    March 18, 2010

  • But every night you can celebrate Pi time!

    March 18, 2010

  • As our calendar only has 12 months, we don't get to celebrate Pi Day in Australia.

  • Interesting! Shouldn't the first word be a one-word sentence--for the decimal?

  • On Pi Day I stumbled across Pilish, which is a kind of constrained writing for poetry. In a Pilish poem, the number of letters in each successive word matches the successive digits of pi. For example:

    Now I fall, a tired suburbian in liquid under the trees,
    Drifting alongside forests simmering red in the twilight over Europe.
    (3 1 4 1 5 9 2 6 5 3 5 8 9 7 9 3 2 3 8 4 6)

  • Beware the Pies of March....

    March 15, 2010

  • Ha! Yes, all pies were rounded off.

    March 15, 2010

  • Was it a round pie?

    March 15, 2010

  • It was Pie Sunday (the second Sunday of each month) at my church today -- 3.14.10! Even I got that one!

    March 15, 2010

  • How I wish I could enumerate pi easily, since all these horrible mnemonics prevent recalling any of pi's sequence more simply.

    (Seen here.)

  • Happy Pi Day!
