Welcome, my friends, to the number that never ends!* It's March 14, which is 3/14 in American, and Pi is 3.14......

Any interesting Pi parties, sightings, news? Pi pies?

Some goodies:

"How Far Can You Memorize Pi? Show Off Your Skills with These Memory Tricks" (Make).

"The Tau of Pi: Why 3.14 Isn’t the Whole Story" (Make).

*Nod to Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.

There was a big article in The Western Mail ("The National Newspaper of Wales") yesterday, as apparently the pi symbol was first used by a Mathematician born on Anglesy.

When I was about 15, I memorised pi to 50 decimal places. Try as I might, I've never been able to forget it.

Yes, as you will all know, this doesn't mean anything here. We put our dates in ascending order, strictly from left to right, day, then month, then year. So the 14th March in numbers is 14:3:2016. So 9:11 here means the 9th of November.
