Pi day is coming up. My youngest son is getting married on 3.14.15

I argued with him that Pi day was 3.14.16 but was unable to convince him. My wife and I bought t-shirts with a Pi day them. Hers says Once in a lifetime with the "t" being the greek letter pi.

3.14.15 9:26:53 which is an extension of the decimal places.

My son is a mathematician, by the way. I am looking forward to inviting his math geek friends to check out her t-shirt (her bosom) to get the joke

Pi Day is always on 3/14. I've celebrated for YEARS.

This year, 2015, Pi Day is extra special, because on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53, the first 10 digits of Pi will be in the date and time!

Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day.

What do you get when you cut a jack o’lantern by its diameter?

Spoiler
Pumpkin Pi!

It would be fun to see an astrological birth chart for someone born at 9:26 am or pm this Pi Day. I wonder if any pregnant women with a 3/14 due date will try to time it just right..."Okay... hold it...hold it...just a few more seconds...okay...push...push!!!"
I think that hospitals should have special certificates on hand for the those lucky few who get it just right

Oh...and that "spoiler" thing you did is so cool! I've never seen that before. Now I need to think of a joke or something so I can try it out for myself. I wonder how many other mysteries of the C-D universe I'm oblivious to?
