I wanted to wish all of you a happy Pi day. As you may or may not know tomorrow is March 14 which can also be written as 3.14 which is… What? Let me give you a hint:
Yup, it is Pi Day and you should celebrate it. Unlike the 1234567890 day this one happens every year so I guess it can be less festive. But it is also less obscure holiday since we can share it with Math and Science people all across the globe.
Oh, I almost forgot. Since we are talking about Pi, I am required by law to post this cartoon here:
Yeah, no whining. You know it was coming. It’s the law! Btw, have you ever wondered what would happen if you would map it’s digits into MIDI notes, and try to play them back. Here is an attempt to do just that. I dare you to listen to the whole thing!
Here is a more artistic approach – same idea, only plaid on a piano and with few chords added here and there to make the melody sound less random and haphazard:
In the comments please post your own Pi related jokes, anecdotes or funny stories. Here is mine:
There exist a door somewhere (I’m not going to tell you where) that has the lock combination composed of the first few digits of Pi. The last digit I rounded up, I believe but it is still basically Pi. Whenever someone needs access to that room, they will just tell him “It’s Pi to the N’th digit rounded up”.
So here is a life hack for the pi day – when faced with a combination lock on a door, try few first digits of Pi. It may or may not work.
