Pi Day: Geek Out Hard on 3.14!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Pi Day is here again! You know, March 14? 3/14? Get it?!

For those of us who aren't irrationally interested in numbers, Pi is named after a mathematical constant - the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

While usually rounded to 3.14, Pi is not a finite number. In actuality it is 22/7, which has been calculated to a million-plus digits. It is LITERALLY never-ending.

Pumpkin Pi

Here are some ways to mark this special occasion:

  • Bake yourself a Pumpkin Pi. It's funny and probably tastes awesome.
  • Wish everyone a happy Pi Day just to see if anyone actually gets it.
  • Go for a 5K run. That's 3.10 miles, which is like really close to 3.14.
  • Hold a moment of silence at 1:59:26 p.m. (Pi = 3.1415926...).
  • Celebrate Albert Einstein's birthday too ... sort of fits, right?
  • Listen to the Pi rap below (obviously someone made one)!

I don't know if The Hollywood Gossip cares about this sort of thing, but just for the record, pi does not equal 22/7, or any other ratio of integers. (That's why it's called an "irrational" number.) 22/7 is a commonly used approximation for pi.
