Every March 14th is Pi day…not the edible kind…the math kind. This Pi day is a little bit more special than most because today’s date (3/14/16) is actually the first 6 digits of pi…rounded up (3.14159). To celebrate, here are some fun facts about Pi that you will feel smarter for knowing:

**Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day. **

Relatively mind-blowing, I know.

**Pi has 6.4 billion known digits. **

It would take 133 years without stopping to recite the entire length of Pi.

**Pi has its own literary form called Pilish. **

Pilish is a way or writing in which the number of letters in each successive word must match the digits of pi. For example: (3.141596) “Yes, I have a great adoration of Rock95!” (I think I cheated a bit with the numbers…but you get the idea)

**If you look at Pi in a mirror…it looks like pie…mmm pie **

**Spock Used Pi to Trick an Evil Computer **

In the *Star Trek* Episode “Wolfe in the Fold”, Spock tricks the evil computer by telling it to “compute to last digit the value of pi”.

**Happy Pi Day! **
