March 14, 2021 : Happy Pi Day!

It’s been a year. However, I know a sure fire way to cheer you up – with the celebration of your favorite day and mine (probably mostly mine)… Pi Day!

Did you know there’s a site dedicated to Pi Day? The internet… who knew, amirite? Anyway, it’s filled with all things Pi. So pretty much porn for nerds. They even sell some solid shirts, which I may or may not be considering.

July 22, 2020 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

This year has been a tough one, that’s for sure. Well it’s “Pi” time to raise those spirits because today is Pi Approximation Day!

It’s a real shame about the Pandemic. I had the party to end all parties lined up, but it had to get cancelled. Oh well, such is life.

By the way, if you got the reference to the pun at the beginning of the post… kudos to you!

March 14, 2020 : Happy Pi Day!!!

Time to sharpen those pencils, add new batteries to them calculators, and all in all nerd it up. That’s right, it’s Pi Day! While most like to celebrate this time of year with the amateur hour that is St. Patty’s Day, I choose to focus my attention to more sophisticated endeavors.

Interesting fact: the symbol for Pi has been in use for nearly 300 years. It was first introduced in 1706, by William Jones, a Welsh mathematician. However, it was made popular by Leonhard Euler – those Swiss sure know how to make things sexy….

July 22, 2019 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

It might not be the real deal, but it’s close enough (sorta). Well, at the very least, it deserves its props. Happy Pi Approximation Day!

An interested tidbit I recently learned is that today is also called Casual Pi Day. I had not heard about this before, but it was on the internet so it must be true.

Do I really need to say what today is? Unfortunately… yes, probably. Either way, today is that great day where Pi gets its due.

Things are a little busy at the moment so I need to keep this brief. Be sure to take a few moments today to fully appreciate the awesomeness that is Pi. Take a look at a circle and smile a few moments longer knowing you can calculated not only its area but the circumference thanks in part to my (and your) favorite irrational number.

July 22, 2018 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

Today is Pi Approximation Day… that special day where we are reminded of Pi. Actually, to be fair, I am always reminded of Pi. Is that weird? Probably. Either way, let’s bask in its glory.

This is the point in the post where I usually give some random fact about the day, but there are only so many tidbits about Pi Approximation Day; and it looks like I’ve shared them all over the years. As such, we should all just take a moment and reflect on Pi’s greatness, which has two days dedicated to its likeness.

You know what day it is? Of course you do – it’s the nerdiest day of them all, and this year it has been made extra nerdy special with an animation:

After you re-watch (and share) the video several times, be sure to reflect on the awesomeness that is Pi. Although, if you come to this site, I guess you already do that. Then again, if you regularly visit this site, you are probably fictional. Either way, Happy Pi Day!

July 22, 2017 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

Happy Pi Approximation Day, nerds! It may not be the real deal, but I like it nearly as much (get it?).

Apparently, some mathematicians and physicists in recent years have argued to replace Pi with tau, which is the ratio of circumference to the radius and thus twice the value of Pi. The ridiculousness continues in that Pi Day would get replaced with Tau Day, taking place June 28th. Madness.

March 14, 2017 : Happy Pi Day!

Things have been pretty hectic lately (hence the lack of posts), but I still have to make sure to wish everybody a Happy Pi Day!

Whether you’re soaking in the warm sun or digging yourself out of the snow, be sure to take a few minutes to appreciate all that Pi has done to make your life better.

Moving forward, I hope to post some updates with the latest short. Things are moving forward – although perhaps not quite as fast as I’d like (but does it ever?).  That said, stay tuned.

July 22, 2016 : Happy Pi Approximation Day!

You know what day it is – actually, you probably don’t – but I sure do. It’s Pi Approximation Day! So be sure to nerd it up today… or more so than normal.

Enjoy the day!

It isn’t the most recognized holiday in July (or popular Pi-related day), but that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. At least that’s how I feel. No doubt this can be attributed to my irrational love of Pi… and puns.
