I know this is early, but Pi(e) Day is coming soon (March 14 [3/14], and I was wondering if any of you guys were going to celebrate it? And if so, to what degree? Are you going to settle with simply having Pumpkin or Banana Cream π? Or perhaps you're going to go all out, have πneapples and apπes for breakfast, Sheppard's π for lunch, and Chicken Pot π for supper, with Apple π for dessert? Me, although I am a math Geek, will probably just celebrate it with Chicken/Sheppard's π for supper and maybe a π for dessert, but I'll also be wearing my π shirt. What about you guys?

Why do we have to relegate the vast importance of π to just one day? :(

But π isn't even that great, either. Personally, I love φ, χ and ψ. :D

I know it sounds contradictory, but it's not. π is too important for just one day. I just think other letters are better. XD

Actually, Pi has two days...Pi Day (March 14th) and Pi Approximation Day (July 22th, 22/7, Pi Approximated)

Pi *would* have a third day if there were an April 31st (4/31), but it sadly does not exist. Quite unfortunate, because both of April's neighbouring months have 31 days in them. :(

Ugh, but no one cares what π approximates to,whether you want to use 3.14 or just 22/7. π is π. XD

Kind of like how e is e. *shrug*

Some of my classmates said they'd try to bring in some pies, so hopefully that'll work out. ^-^

I personally prefer Ω over π...

Fun fact: π is lowercase.
