July 22, 2022 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

The Silver Medal to my favorite day is here… Pi Approximation Day! The reminder that Pi is so great, it gets two separate celebrations each year.

If you want to learn something fun (and crazy), read about the Indiana Pi Bill. It’s a bizarre story of someone trying to pass a bill in the late 1800’s claiming he found a way to “Square the Circle” – something that cannot be done because of Pi’s inherent nature (i.e. it’s ‘transcendental’). Still, it didn’t stop someone from confusing others, wasting people’s time, and ultimately making a fool of oneself… and the state of Indiana. Good stuff.
