March 14 (3-14), is the day when math enthusiasts all around the world celebrate Pi Day. Almost everybody knows (but we will mention it anyway) that Pi (3.141592…) is the value with which the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is calculated. To people who don’t like and those who don’t really care about mathematics, this might just be another boring number.
But for math devotees around the world, this number is considered to be ‘magical’ and ‘beautiful’. Ancient Egyptian and Greek scientists and mathematicians spent their lives trying to approximate its value. Hundreds of years later, math enthusiasts are still after it. Pi day, is therefore a day dedicated to the ‘magic’ and ‘beauty’ of this number. It is also the day when all mathematics nerds get a chance to gather and celebrate while the rest of the less intelligent beings live on with their lives without even knowing it is Pi Day.
Twitter is abuzz with people celebrating, commenting, (even) lamenting, talking, discussing about Pi Day. There were some tweets that were exceptionally brilliant. Let’s have a look at them:
It's Pi Day! No better way to celebrate your knowledge of mathematics than by enjoying a slice of pie heaven. Eat smartly, my friends.— Randa Wells (@notesfromranda) March 14, 2013
I'm just really excited for Pi day in two years because the date will 3/14/15.— Maddie Crichton (@maddz99) March 14, 2013
Sorry, everyone. I can't hang out today. I'm too busy studying pi. #PiDay— Garth Algar (@v0lvagia) March 14, 2013
Lets start Pi Day off with a quote from Mr Donovan "Electrons are kind of like Communism... All they want to do is share!"— MatthewFrank Maggio (@Maggio6_95) March 14, 2013
He has a point:
