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...

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........
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.
