Today is Pi Day! That's π, as in the ratio between the circumference of a
circle and its diameter, better known as the mathematical constant
beginning with 3.14. We celebrate pi on March 14, or 3/14, because the
date represents the first three digits of π in decimal form.
In 1989, physicist Larry Shaw created Pi Day, which was celebrated at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where staff and members of the public marched in a circle and then ate fruit pies. To get in the spirit, sit back with a piece of pie and watch this hilarious parody of the well-known Eminem hit, “Lose Yourself,” which tells the tale of a Pi Day competition. And be sure to read the full blog post about this holiday for fans of the never-ending pi.
