Pi day


Just a heads up for tomorrow. I’m sure you all realise that tomorrow is Pi day – because if you write the date tomorrow in the American format (3/14) you get the first three digits of Pi.

But do you realise that Pi day this year has extra special significance, because at 3/14/15 at 9:26:53.59, the date/time combination will yield the first 12 digits of Pi (3.14159265359)?

This is a unique event in the history of recorded time so will never happen again – set your alarms, but you’ll only have 1/100 sec to enjoy the full 12 digits. Of course you can still bask in the knowledge that the whole day is also uniquely giving the first 5 places!
