@RiotDemon@rockblossom At first I was getting increasingly annoyed that she gave the date as the first six digits. Well played. I guess I must be πOCD.
If the video was one second longer it would have been 3:14 - wonder if that was the aim?

@Limewater Also kind of interesting: In Greek, they actually pronounce the character ‘π’ with a short ‘i’ sound, like we pronounce the letter ‘p.’ However, a co-worker of mine is Greek and I asked him about this, and he said he pronounces it like “pie” when using it in a math context just because that is the convention.

@IcePopBOD “If you know the diameter of the observable Universe and you want to calculate its circumference with the accuracy of the diameter of a proton, the number of digits of pi that you need is 43.”
You would need only 60 digits to calculate it to the accuracy of a Planck length.

@IcePopBOD@PocketBrain And most high school students who take the SAT, ACT, or undergrads who take the G-MAT only need to know it to 2 digits. I’d suspect that that is only to the accuracy of the smallest hole circle a cockroach can fit through.

@Kidsandliz@thismyusername Kroger has many good food items, but their bakery isn’t one of them. From their buns to the look-delicious things in their dessert case, most of it’s just not good.

@pooflady@thismyusername Actually thinking about it, I sort of remember liking Walmart donuts better than Kroger’s (haven’t bought bakery stuff from either place in a long time).

You too, Cap!

Pie day is always appreciated around here!

I’m wearing my Count to Pi shirt.

@sammydog01 I am too!

Count To PiPrice: $19.00

Condition: Probably New

2015 must have been a great year for pi day.

@RiotDemon “Must have?” You don’t remember it?

@rockblossom most of been so overjoyed I forgot.

What I always find amusing about this is that 22/7 really is a better approximation of pi than 3.14.

@Limewater Ha, when we lived in England (long ago), there was a haircut place called “π = 22/7”. Every time I’d walk down that street it would irk me.

@Limewater @mehcuda67 be even better if a bakery called itself that.

@Limewater look at Einstein here with his rational numbers…

e to the x, dy/dx

e to the x, dx

cosine, secant, tangent, sine

three point one four one five nine

Goooo team!!

I used to have 56 digits of pi memorized…

ANYWAYS…Happy pi day!/giphy pi pie

@IcePopBOD At least you memorized how many digits you had memorized.

~~hole~~circle a cockroach can fit through.I Know I posted this before,probably last year, but back in 2014 i decided to make a Pumpkin pie for Pi Day.

and because i’m a smart ass…

because duh! Pie are squared! Everyone knows that!

oh…that chunk in the middle? that’s where ol’ fumble fingers here dropped the phone into the pie trying to take a picture.

the phone cleaned up deliciously.

@earlyre Was it an Apple Pi Phone by any chance?

@mehcuda67 no…

No fruit phones for me.

Kroger has pies on sale

@Kidsandliz Kroger’s pies should be free.

@Kidsandliz @pooflady I am still not convinced that Kroger is a real place… it feels like a sitcom store.

@Kidsandliz @thismyusername Walmart doughnuts are terrific!

Google calculated 31,415,926,535,897 digits of π for the current record.

One of my coworkers left me a “Happy pi day” note. I got a huge grin on my face when I saw it.

Pi are not square! Pi are round! Cake are square!
