This morning is once in a lifetime event for you math geeks: “Perfect Pi day.” Once In A Lifetime Math Moment On Saturday’s Pi Day, ‘3/14/15 At 9:26 a.m.’:
March 14th has been known as Pi Day ever since math promoters realized the fun that could be had with the date, but in 2015, Pi Day really is significant as the mathematical moment of Pi–3.141592653–will only come around once in a lifetime, on March 14th, 2015 at 9:26 a.m. and 53 seconds. It will be a moment captured in mathematical perfection for fans of the mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
For those like us in the U.S. who use the Western Calendar, we can watch our smartphones and clocks tick over to that time, and have the enjoyment of living during the instant of “Pi” carried out to 10 digits.
A moment like this won’t be back for another hundred years, March 14th, 2115.
So head on out to your favorite restaurant, bakery or pie shop this morning and celebrate “Perfect Pi Day” the right way, with a slice of your favorite pie.
