Happy Pi Day

It's funny.  Laugh.

yummy (666) writes " Today's date, March 14, or 3/14 in standard U.S. notation, corresponds with the first three digits of pi, 3.14. The number represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Today also happens to be the birthday of the physicist Albert Einstein 128 years ago. Celebrants will gather at the Exploratorium science museum in San Francisco to eat pie, recite pi, sing songs about pi, write ``pi-ku'' (haiku poetry about pi) and celebrate Einstein's birthday, said Ron Hipschman, a physicist at the museum."
