"It is an irrational number, which means that it cannot be expressed as a fraction m/n, where m and n are integers and its decimal representation never ends or repeats. Indeed: beyond being irrational, it is a transcendental number, which means that no finite sequence of algebraic operations on integers (powers, roots, sums, etc.) could ever produce it. Throughout the history of mathematics, much effort has been made to determine π more accurately and understand its nature; fascination with the number has even carried over into culture at large."

So, in the name of all that is Pi, go out today and eat a big piece of your favourite Pie.
Coconut cream, Rasberry, Chocolate, Peach whatever your fancy.

And have a happy Pi Day.


  1. It's only Pi day for those of you who write the date the weird way round :P

  2. Very true. We are wrong.
    One of my pet peeves.

  3. Lemon meringue pie at the Salisbury House.... Oh yeah.... Baby....

  4. It's nice to meet someone who agrees that the American/Canadian way isn't logical :) Someone who isn't from the rest of the world, I mean.

  5. Wow, I just happened to randomly have a slice of Saskatoon pie yesterday!


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
