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.



We could ditch our current calendar and start over. That would be less time consuming than waiting for the supernova.

Can supernovas be predicted? Once a supernova starts, how long does it take? If our sun started supernovaing on pi day, would we live to see the next pi day?

Pi is an irrational bigot.

Just was reading about how Pi has been proven to be a number without end. Didn't understand it. I googled for an easy explaination and the answer was complicated.

Many significant math proofs aren't straightforward for most.

No matter how mathy you folks get, I still prefer to observe the coincidental celebration.
May the cards fall in your favor.
