Happy Pi Day... I mean Birthday, Albert Einstein!

20th Anniversary of Pi Day
Friday, March 14

3/14 1:59pm     ...     (Get it? 3.14159?)

(It's also Albert Einstein's birthday!)

Pi Limericks make me think of Tom Lehrer:
The number pi’s a ratio pal.
Whose fame is international.
C to diameter,
endless parameter,
to me it’s all irrational!
- Paul Doherty

'Tis a favorite project of mine
A new value of pi to assign.
I would fix it at 3
For it's simpler, you see,
Than 3 point 1 4 1 5 9

If inside a circle a line
Hits the center and goes spine to spine
And the line's length is "d"
the circumference will be
d times 3.14159

Three point one four one five nine two
It's been around forever - it's not new
It appears everywhere
In here and in there
It's irrational I know but it's true !

Now there is an ancient Greek letter,
And I think no other is better.
It isn't too tall,
It might look very small,
But its digits, they go on forever.

Mmmmm. Pizza Pi!

Also, check out this Einstein chalkboard generator. What fun!...?

Okay. I'll go away.
