Default Anybody Celebrate Pi-Day today...?

...after all, we do use it from time to time...we should celebrate it...!

I celebrated it by watching a painful video proving that Pi is an irrational number...

I didn't want to provide the link because it is much too painful and will then require complete mind washing...LOL...

Happy 3/14...(3.14)

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

I memorized it to 110 decimal points lol . I had this younger friend of mine who’s other friend always had to always out due me, so I thought I’d memorize Pi as far as I could for two days . Got to 68 the first night after 15 beers ,and got to 110 the next

Celebrating this day has never added up to me. It's obviously calculated to please math majors. To me, circular reasoning is required. Don't use it at home, usually a minimum radious of several miles is best, you know, near the town's best bakery.

I don't know, Tom, for some reason it just strikes a chord with me.....

Is there a phi day too? It's at least as important.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I always thought Pi was a number made up to make the answer could me out correct. Did not celebrate or watch video about Pi.
