Happy birthday, Einstein! But this is also Pi Day, and a very special Pi Day at that.

Why so special? The date is 3/14/15, the first five digits in the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

And—get ready for this—at 26 minutes and 53 seconds after 9 a.m., we will pass a date and time represented by the first 10 digits of π. Very exciting! If you miss it, there will be one more chance at 9 p.m. After that, you’ll have to wait another 100 years for that auspicious moment to happen again...



Various commemorations:

We're planning on a whipped cream pi(e) fight with our kids.
You know, just some Ready Whip in pie tins and an epic grudge match in the yard.

Next up! Star Wars Day - May the 4th.
lolz!

Pi day 2015 wouldn't be the same without mentioning Daniel Tammet - the autistic fella who can recite pi to 22, 514 places.

He probably just gets the first few right and no one else knows any better.

Let π bring some light into this world

π is related with all ancient temples and giza pyramids, philosophers/mathematicians and modern scientists. Even pianists

No it's not it's 14/3/15. Note how the date is in the correct order days months years with days being smaller than months and months being smaller than years. A logical progression from left to right. Only the US would invent an ar.e about t.t way of representing a date ! You can't even spell colour (color) or through (thru). The US must be the only country in the world (except Thailand) where men have fannies. But I suppose you can have a laugh at our expense since we put rubbers on the end of pencils........

I looked at the clock right after reading this, and it was exactly 9:26:53AM...

Seriously.


Happy πday, everyone!

Would you say, out loud, that 'it's the 14th of March'?

Or would you say 'it's March 14th'?

Why say it one way and write it the opposite?

MM/DD/YY all the way.

We would say it the 14th of March.

It is the 14th day of the 3rd month of the 2015th year.

Incremental in ascending order, it really is that simple

I wonder what TPTB will try to pull off today? Those evil bastards won't be able to resist the significance of such a date.

So, I'm bunkered down , monitoring all sources....

Okay, here are some pics:







We used three of the jumbo cans of Ready Whip which are 13 oz each but, sadly, each can fell short of two pies so we were down a pie.


The carnage:



There was more carnage on people but, sorry, no pics - we were covered with whip cream and didn't want to get the phones messy.


We decided that next year we will double-down on pie count and make sure we have enough Ready Whip for ALL of the pie tins.

It was fun though, my hubby took one right to the face.
I took a side hit and our tween came out unscathed, the turd. LOL! Our toddler was not amused - at all. Thought we were fighting and told us we needed a time out...but did eat the partial pie and now is now running around on a sugar high.


The neighbor's dog came around and was enthusiastic to use his tongue to help with the clean up. Clean up was less fun but totally necessary or tomorrow will be Ant Day.


Happy PI Day ATS!

Once in a century, but if it is experienced at 9:26 am and 53 seconds past the minute, it is a once in a 1000 year moment.
