Pie day is coming up.

I wish I could find this in a jersey so I would be ready for pie day.

Can't post a web link since I haven't made ten posts!

Sooo - Right click on image, pick "search google for image", find image from website that sells it
Site I found is "Signals dot com", but there might be others.

Enjoy!

I try to always keep in mind that G = (6.67428۪ ± 0.00067)(10^-11)(m^3)( kg^-1)(s^-2).

Doing so has helped me tremendously through life.

To impress the ladies in high school, I used to be able to remember Pi to the 20th decimal place.

It didn't work.

And you still wouldn't be able to hack into my friend's computer. His password is the last 7 digits of Pi.

Another change IMO is the seeming disappearance of self-identified females from those good old days….
Do ya think the young’uns know, and the old-timers remember what Pie Day is all about?

For those who remember, Irma has retired. Her duties as pie maven have been taken over by one of her daughters.

Doesn't work in the proper date format, year-month-day.

Years don't count so we can celebrate Pi day every year in the US.

What do you get when you take a bovine and divide its circumference by its diameter? A cow pi.
