Happy Pi Day!

It's March 14th, international Pi Day. Obviously you aren't getting the day off today but feel free to celebrate in your own little way. cool

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter "π") is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant آ— the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter آ— which is approximately 3.14159. Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.
