It’s PI day today 14 March!

It’s PI day today! PI starts 3.14 and in the American date 3/14 is 14 March!

Celebrate with some pie (PI)!

Today is Pi Day (14 March) in New Zealand, called Pi Day because in the US 14 March is written 3/14 and Pi ~ 3.14 (3.14159).

We consider that PI may be more infectious than the measles.
