Happy Pi Approximation Day!

Tue Jul 22, 2014 7:41 pm

I'm just off to a pub quiz and there's usually a round on what happened this day in history, so I looked for a handy list. One thing notable about today's date - it's Pi Approximation Day: 22/7.

Interestingly, in the pub quiz I was in last night, the team I was in was called "Happy Pi Approximation Day".

So that's a bit of a coincidence.
