    I figure we should give old shortbus every benefit of the doubt we can. :)

    It's not ∏ day here because it is 14.3.2013 but it would be if we used American style dates.

    Does that mean you celebrate Pi Approximation day (22/7)?

    To be honest, I hadn't heard of Pi day before, but I may aim to have 3,143 posts by 22/7

    What's the BIG DEAL about pi day though? I think it wouldn't affect our life if we will just neglect it, isn't it? Moreover, I never heard about pi day ever since.

    I think it has the same significance as New Year's Eve: As much as you give to it.

    Well Albert Einstein was born on this day. I think that is pretty cool.

    My kid made several dozen toroidal pastries last night, for his math class today, in honor of pi day.

    I'd have thought Google would have done something with their logo today, but now I realize it only is valid in the US and other areas using the same date nomenclature system.

    Almost all of Google's doodles are regionally specific.

    I think they just did one before and felt that was enough...
