    Sure, pi is irrational, but but that 4 guy is such a square

    We'll be in search of a chess pie, or a buttermilk pie. If we can't find that, we'll settle for a quality apple pie.

    M.I.T. releases acceptance results today at 1:59 (3.14159) so my daughter is on pins and needles for the next hour and a half. Fingers crossed! She's wait listed for Stanford and Cal Tech already.

    Kate Bush could just sing the phone book if she wanted, and we’d listen. She chose Pi instead:

    Well, since one approximation of pi is 22/7, you just have to wait a few months....


    Edited for correction of brain fart....

    Pretty close to 1 in 365. Probably more like 1 in 365.25 but that’s not as clean sounding.

    It hasn’t really been Pi Day since 1592 though, right? Or 1593 if you’re being picky?

    Well, it’s 4 in 1461, since there are no quarter days on the calendar, but....I digress.
