Let's Talk About Pi(e)

Happy Pi Day! Here are a few fun facts for the day:


Pi has been studied for over 4,000 years

The symbol for Pi has been used regularly for over 250 years

Pi Day is also Albert Einstein's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mr. Einstein!

There is no zero in the first 31 digits of Pi

At position 763, there are six nines in a row; this is known as Feynman Point.




Now I want to hear your thoughts on sweet pies. What is your favorite kind of pie? What is your least favorite kind of pie? My favorites are Cherry and Peach, my least favorites are Blueberry and Key Lime.

Mmm...pie.

Lemon Meringue, Apple, Pumpkin, Blueberry, Strawberry Rhubarb...anything with fruit. I'm not a huge fan of pudding pies.
