What is bothering me is that if we round pi to five decimal places it is 3.1416. So, I submit for the consideration of the forum that we should be having our once in a century pi day blow out next year, on 3/14/16. Or am I just throwing cold water on the celebration, like those annoying perfectionists who complained whenever anybody tried to celebrate the new millennium on 1/1/2000?

The question for the poll is what is your opinion about this pi day?

pi = 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286

Quote:WizardI'd like to wish each and every member of WoV a happy pi day. There is extra hoopla about this particular pi day because the first five digits of pi are 3.1415 and today's date is 3/14/15.

Or, we could celebrate in about 3 minutes, on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 AM....

I don't understand why the celebration for something that happened 9 days, 2 months, 423 years ago...

I actually never bothered to memorize pi past 3.14, but now I can't help but know it to 3.1415, and if we celebrate next year too, 3.14159 [edited]

celebrating down to the last second won't help me LOL

Quote:WizardThe exact moment to pop the champagne would be Mar 14, 2015, at 9:26 AM and 53 or 54 seconds, depending on rounding. If you're doing to celebrate down the second, then today is the day. You won't have another chance to celebrate pi to 10 decimal places for another 100 years. At least by the US date formatting.

Hummmm To stay up another 2 hours to try a pi post at exactly 9:26:54

Woke up this morning and put a piece of pumpkin pie in the microwave for 33 seconds, added some Cool Whip-generic product to the top and had my coffee. I had never even heard of Pi day until 3 days ago. This is a special Pi day. 3.1415. I voted that today is the special Pi day. Sure, if you round it off it's 3.1416. But who said anything about rounding? The fifth digit is a 5. That's all you need to know.

Now, nobody has proven that Pi continues infinitely, have they?

My goal is to get a screen capture of www.time.gov at 9:26:53 AM. We are hundreds of years past the best pi day of all time, 3/14/1592 at 6:53:58 AM. The sun will supernova long before we can do better.Quote:WizardI'd like to wish each and every member of WoV a happy pi day.

Proof pi is both irrational and transcendental
