Happy Pi day! No, that is not a typo. Pi day is March 14th or 3/14 every year when many people (especially geeks) celebrate the mathematical value Pi.
The mathematical value Pi is the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter. The result is 3.14159265359... and so forth. It is an irrational number - the number of digits following the decimal point never end and the value never settles into a permanent repeating pattern. Mathematicians, computer scientists and probably a few geeks have worked together to carry out the value of Pi to over 10 trillion (10^13) digits. But who's counting?
There is a website that exists because of Pi day - www.piday.org - but it is down right now. Probably because too many people are trying to access it. Well, it is Pi day today. You can also see an article about Pi on Wikipedia.
There are many celebrations across the U.S. today to celebrate Pi day. Whether you're a geek or not you may want to get out and celebrate. After all Pi day only comes once per year. And you wouldn't want to miss it. But don't let others know you're going out to celebrate Pi day. They might think you're kinda geeky.
