Happy Pi day today 3.14

Today, March 14th is Pi day (for obvious reasons). Some fun things you should do today:

As I have done many times in the past, recite the CIT cheer (Carnegie Institue of Technology, now part of Carnegie Mellon University)

Ye Olde CIT Cheer

E to the X, dy dx, e to the y, dy,
tangent, secant, cosine, sine,
3.14159
square root, cube root, log of e
watercooled slipstick, CIT!

Search for your phone number or other interesting string of digits in the first 200 million digits of Pi.

Eat Pi. (I mean pie). I prefer lemon merengue, although apple pie is very traditional.

I am not going to watch the movie because it is really creepy and involves drills to my delicate head.

Can you recite pi to 22,501 decimal places? Then you can beat this guy...

Our pi celebration should not forget "big pi" representing the product of a series. Hooray for the forgotten big pi!

Yo Bro,

This was definitely one of my favorite topics you have covered thus far! Also, I actually remember you chanting your little CIT cheer way back when...and thinking, how is this kid my twin?

Love ya!

...Oh, I forgot, Kenny & I saw "PI-The Movie" and creepy is an understatement.
