Just because the date rolled past 3/14 1:59 today doesn't mean we should be irrational.

Pie are round. Cake are squared.

Generally the only 'celebrations' i've been near, years ago, were from groups that were looking for a reason to bring pies into work; if I were to ask what the number actually represents, I'm pretty sure few could answer. In that context, I thought the whole thing was pretty stupid

Irrational indeed. lol.

That's a minor variation of the punchline of a more complicated joke that went around at least as least far back as the early 1960s. (Said the hillbilly to his math-student son, "No, son, pie are round! Cornbread are square!")

The odds of that are one in 365 because it was already determined Einstein was born on PI day. The odds of Stephen being born and also dying on PI day are one in 133,225. In honor of Stephen Hawking.
