The Late Pie



I missed posting on Pi day this year. I've been busy all week writing a sermon for vespers this Friday and it slipped my mind till it was too late...
Oh well, a late pie is still a good pie.

So, here are some interesting random facts about pi.

Albert Einstein was born on pi Day (3/14/1879) in Ulm Wurttemberg, Germany.

By the year 1701 the first 100 digits of pi had been calculated.

Pi has been calculated to 10 trillion (1 million x 1 million x 10) digits as of October, 2011.

What do you get when you divide the circumference of a Jack-o-lantern by it's diameter? Pumpkin Pi...

So the last one isn't really a fact... :P

Anyway, hope you had a great pi day. I'll eat some pie in celebration as soon as I come across some.

What kind of pie do you think that was? lemon? pumpkin? It make my mouth water just thinking of it. I'm not a very good 'pi' maker, prefer crisps instead... but could try pi. Interesting .......
