Tomorrow (July 22nd) is Pi Approximation Day. For those who don't know, it is another of those "just-for-fun' quasi-holidays.

From Wikipedia:

Pi Day is an annual American celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the month/day date format), since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π in decimal form. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.

Pi Approximation Day is observed on July 22 (or 22/7 in the day/month date format), since the fraction 22⁄7 is a common approximation of π.

A sequential time will occur on March, 14, 2015 — 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 following the sequence of π: 3.141592653.

I didn't realize that the House actually passed a Pi day, that's cool.

Thanks for the info, Butch.

I like that - Especially next March! Yeah numbers get me for some reason, so the whole 3/14/15 @ 9:26 will be freakin' sweet. :D

I'll probably forget by then, so I hope someone bumps this thread as that date approaches.
