Happy Pi day, all! On Piphilology and poems about π

Here’s a nice article about π , Pi day and piphilology (“the creation and use of mnemonic techniques to remember the digits of Pi”).

Also check out the Evri page on Pi day!

This cool Wikipedia page has a bunch of examples of mnemonics to represent the value of Pi to various digits. For example, the phrase “Can I have a large container of coffee? Thank you.” represents the value of Pi  down to 3.141592653 , and is probably very apt for Seattle and the age of 31-ounce Trenta coffee drinks !

Enjoy the day ! I sure will —  my wife is “making chess pie for Pi Day because it’s the geekiest sounding pie [she] could think of” !!
