National Pi Day

Standard

I wish it were National Pie Day, but instead it is National Pi Day. (According to http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/March/piday.htm, pi is “a mathematical concept  and a number that never ends….at least no one has found the end yet. Often, we round it off to 3.14.”) If we could eat numbers, there would certainly be enough pi to go around.

If you don’t know what pi is, http://www.piday.org/learn-about-pi/ will shed some light.

Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.

The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around.

I thought I would end this post with one million digits of pi, but that is just too wacky. Instead, I’ll end with some uncounted, random digits of pi, courtesy of http://www.piday.org/million/

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

  1. It’s a pretty special year this year, too. At 9:26:53 this morning, the date and time will be the first 10 digits of pi. Won’t happen again until 2115 and we’ll all be dead by then. Enjoy that pi second!
