21,233Besides π is the wrong number we should celebrate τ day.

And what about e day?

I only today realized it's Albert Einstein birthday. Which is how all this sillyness came about.

Happy birthday Albert. And thanks for all the headaches

I'm off to the shops to get some pie...

19,942No moaning this side of the pond. We're partying because we got the format right and this is the year. But Tau day, seriously? Do you really want to wait 16 years for 6.28.32?

Too risky to wait that long IMO. At my age, I don't even buy green bananas.

Yes, but if you are going to give Pi to 5 significant digits the last of them had better be 6. That is more accurate.

Beside one always has to round off Pi, what with it's infinite number of seemingly random digits.

684Nothing to match your restaurant receipt but last year I began a practice of walking every day. I picked out a random route through the neighborhood and have repeated it every day for the past eight months - gives me time to think. You would just take a bike, but you're a faster thinker.

One day I brought the Garmin eTrex along to find out the path's length. As you've already guessed, doorstep to doorstep it was 3.14 miles. Might mention that over time the pie walk has become a cake walk.

19,942I love your circular logic!

19,942Might be time for the "other camp" to throw in the

Tau-el.2,057Body is required. I cannot delete this.

Well, ok, you cannot have Pi with out i.

You also cannot have an i without pi.

176Awesome, erco. Hope you're doing well.
