Eat delicious baked goods while celebrating math!

ThinkGeek, what's special about this year's Pi Day?" Uh, it's an excuse to eat pies and celebrate math. How much more special can a day get?

Maybe you're new to this whole "Pi Day" phenomenon, so let us break it down for you. Here's what you likely already know about our most favorite constant:

  • Pi ( π ) is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter
  • It's an irrational number so its digits are infinite and non-repeating
  • 3.14 are the first digits of Pi (which is why Pi Day falls on 3/14 every year)

Now... here's some fun Pi facts you might not know!!

  • In the Greek alphabet, π is the sixteenth letter; in the English alphabet, P is also the sixteenth letter
  • Suresh Kumar Sharma currently holds the world record for memorizing the most digits of Pi at 70,030
  • Pi has been studied by the human race for ~4,000 years
  • The first million decimal places of pi consist of 99,959 zeros, 99,758 1s, 100,026 2s, 100,229 3s, 100,230 4s, 100,359 5s, 99,548 6s, 99,800 7s, 99,985 8s, and 100,106 9s
  • Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day in 1879
  • There are no occurrences of the sequence 123456 in the first million digits of pi

meaningless icon! Additional trivia: Timmy's Minions won a tie breaker at one Trivia Night because Erik Davis was able to accurately recall more digits of pi than the other team.
