national pi day

tomorrow is 3-14, which is pi day. and recently congress just made it official: march 14 is now officially national pi day.

The senators responsible were thanked for introducing the bill: "Thank you for recognizing the importance of math and science education to a knowledge-based economy", a bunch of technology groups said in a letter directed to congress.

of course, i think it's silly to make a national day in order to give teachers an excuse to teach children mathematics and make them excited about science and math. but it is cool to have an official reason to make pies. as frivilous as valentines' day is, pi day serves just as important of a purpose.

funny enough, march 14 is also steak and bj day.
