Happy Pi Day

When you count dates the wrong way, as it is done here in the US, March 14 becomes 3/14, or more suggestively, 3.14 --- which has led to its designation as "pi day".  Of course, it really should just be "pi moment", a moment which can only ever be approximated.

Nonetheless, I always like bringing a little more mathematics to the rest of the world, even if it is for silly numerology reasons like the fact that Einstein was born on pi day. 

And so, I'll sign off,
Yours, wishing you a happy pi day,
