Cosmic Quote #3.1415…..Happy Pi Day

“Perfect numbers like perfect men are very rare.”–Rene Descartes

“It’s clearly a budget.  It’s got a lot of numbers in it.”–George W. Bush

Cherry is good, too.

Cherry is good, too.

It seems that perfect presidents are even rarer than perfect men or perfect numbers.  And that goes doubly for perfect web sites, as that “W” quote above came from the inaptly named brainyquote.com.  So what better entity to dedicate a day to than the most famous of imperfect numbers, π.    On this Pi Day of the century (3/14/15) have yourself a slice of your favorite.  I’m in Florida at the moment, so that would definitely be Key Lime.

Cheers

  1. It occurred to me this morning: I’d like your guess on what percent of adults can correctly give the definition of pi (other than “it has something to do with a circle”)?

  2. GWB – oh dear…

  3. The only Pi day of the century… and I’m at work

  4. Lemon meringue. It was yummy 🙂
