Happy Pi Day!

3/14 – also known as Pi day for geeks and fun lovers everywhere!


Here are some fun facts about Pi so you can impress your friends with your knowledge:

  • In the first 100,000 digits of Pi, the number that occurs most frequently is 1.
  • The Babylonians were the first to find a value for Pi.
  • The longest memorized series of Pi numbers went to 42,195 (Not sure how this person got this far without a single mistake, but would anyone notice?)
  • In other parts of the world, July 22 — 22/7 — is another popular choice for Pi Day. So you can celebrate twice if you want!
  • Memorizing large strings of the digits of pi through the use of various mnemonic techniques is called piphilology.

John and I celebrated Pi Day with a bit of pie!  The coffee shop was celebrating as well and offered a free cup of coffee with the purchase of a slice of pie.  Who could resist that offer?


Have a great weekend!
