Happy Belated Pi Day -

March 21, 2015

Happy Belated Pi Day – Here’s the Rest of the Story.
The new service did jump on the story of Pi Day again.  And I have to give them credit for pointing out that it was a special pi day – I call it 10-digit Pi Day.
Most Pi Days 3-digit Pi Days.  You know 3.14 which corresponds to the date 3/14 for March 14th.  But this year was special.
3.141592653…the first 10 digits of Pi.
3/14/15 corresponds to March 14th, 2015.  Then just add the time: 9:26 and 53 seconds.
But there is no mention of 12-Digit Pi Day which occurred on March 14th, 1592 at 6:53 and 59 seconds.  And just like that you have 12-Digit Pi Day.
Can you have a 13-Digit Pi Day?
Have there been other occurrences of 12-Digit Pi Day?  Will there ever be another 12-digit Pi Day?  Is 12-digits the best we can expect?
Why get worked up about it – who cares?  I do.  I got married on a 3-digit Pi Day (she did not know it so it was kind of easy to trick her).  Some of you are thinking that I did it so I would not forget my anniversary every year.  But really I did it so I would not forget Pi Day!
How do they celebrate Pi Day on the planet Mercury?
How is July 22nd related to Pi Day?

How are 13 and Netflix related?
