    Default Happy Pi moment!

    In the year 2015, Pi Day had special significance on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m. and will have some at p.m., with the date and time representing the first 10 digits of π.That same second will also contain a precise instant corresponding to all of the digits ofπ.

    I remember back in 1978, the time and date was 12:34 5/6/78.

    I'm old.

    But I still like math!

    An opinion without 3.14 is just an onion...

There is another that states that this has already happened.... Douglas Adams 1952 - 2001
