Every year on March 14th, the nerd community gathers ‘round to celebrate the beloved mathematical constant pi. We know that pi is so much more than the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter—it’s critical to understanding the best things in life, which are all circular. Pizza, for example, is an excellent…
War is hell, and hell still doesn’t have pizza.
Happy Pi Day! How are you celebrating the transcendental, irrational mathematical constant central derived from circles on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53? For me, it's going to be giggling over physicists engaging in an epic chalk battle, and devouring an apple-ginger pie.
The sun is shining here in New York City for what feels like the first time in 100 years. The sun now stays up past 4pm. Winter is vanquished! And this week has been big for White Noise. Let's talk amongst ourselves.
Exactly one year ago today, I set out to collect 314 pi-related YouTube videos in honor of Pi Day. I got to 22 before I gave up in disgust. Here is that post, untouched since March 14, 2013.
We may be celebrating Pi Day here at io9, but we would be irrational to deny that there’s more to mathematical interestingness than simply dividing an object’s circumference by its diameter. Here are seven numbers we love as much as pi.
It's Pi Day! Which, okay, whatever, if you were really hardcore about celebrating you'd figure out what nanosecond corresponds to 3.14159 or whatever and pop the Moet then but you didn't and you won't so whatever, right? But! That doesn't mean we can't still have some fun with the nerdiest holiday in the land,…
Have you ever felt like getting some people together and toasting something in the name of science? If you have, then you may have already noticed that of the eleven federally recognized U.S. holidays, not a one of them has anything to do with science.
The traditional free pie on Pi day (3/14) is here, so go grab a slice today at participating restaurants/pie shops/pie food trucks. [Walletpop]
Today (3/14) is Pi Day, a hallowed celebration in which radius and circumference lovers everywhere convene to eat circular pastries and challenge each other to decimal-reciting contests. Score your festivities with the awesomely underrated soundtrack to Darren Aronofsky's Pi.
Today's March 14th, which everyone knows is the day high school math club members further cement their alienation by celebrating their love of math, or circles, or whatever. But today's Sunday, so let's everyone celebrate nerddom in the comments! [Wiki]
