Pi Day

At 9:26:53 AM this morning, the date and time are the same as the first 10 digits of Pi. (3.141592653) Not the Life of Pi, which was a great movie (see “Richard Parker”), and a book our kids read in middle school, but the constant that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Once I knew at least 4 ways to calculate this precisely, to any level of detail, those days have faded.
