Pi Symbol Ice Cube Trays
Shouldn’t Pi Day be held on the 22/7?
pi day??? 14th of march is steak and blowjob day!,
don’t believe me? just google it
Beats me why 3/14 was choosen as pi-day since 22/7 (non-USA notation of day/month) is a so much better approximation of pi, must be USA domination of the world again, I guess…
Those rubber ice cube trays are a nightmare to use.
use KY first
Feh. when’s Pie Day?
“Those rubber ice cube trays are a nightmare to use.”
Nonsense! Just run some warm water over the back of the tray for a few moments.
Then the ice can easily be pushed out from behind.
In the US, Pi day is 3.14 (march 14th). In the UK we celebrate it on the 22nd July (22/7).
Pi Day! Cheese Louise!
Okay, all you nerds that celebrate Pi Day gotta wear pocket protectors in the plaid shirt you wear a tie with, so you can be discernable on that day, and we can be cautious not to offend your delicate insecurities about cleaving with all your might to etherial things that are little more than illusions, while Life and Nature all around you beckon you to come see, come play. The sun is warm, the water is fresh.
I can’t wait until 2015..
at 9:26 am.
I’ll have peach cobbler..
ThinkGeek rulez! Their Tetris ice cubes also look very, um, cool.
Pi day already? I’m still recovering from e day.
Pi Day is 3.14.
But technically it’s over at 1:59 and 26 seconds.
I use perfectly round disks of ice, so the ratio of the circumference to the diameter is roughly 355/113.
Heh – I’ll be getting married on Pi day (at 15:00 hours, on the 9th year of the century…). Yes my fiancÃ©e is a science geek. Yes, she also figured I might actually be able to remember the date this way…
It just occurred to me that we don’t have any pie on the food list. I have work to do!
RIKF – Nice!
My buddy is getting married March 6th, 2009 at 12:15.
3-6-09 12:15 All multiples of 3. Yes, he, too, is a geek.
Pi day on 14th of March?
I thought the whole idea of Pi is that it is NOT 3,14
22-7 (the 22th of July for the American readers)would be a much better date…
March 14th is already Steak & Blowjob Day
and don’t forget that 03-03-09 is square day!
March 14th is Steak & Blowjob Day? Live and learn. Maybe it has something to do with the Ides… Beware the day after getting what you want. Prepare to mow some lawn.
At a certain point (two points?) of the day the time is 3.1415… ad infinitum. And then the last digit changes and the day goes on.
Using March 14 (3.14) makes it easier for teachers to get students involved. We devote a whole day of lessons (across the curriculum) for Pi Day. Getting them back in school for July 22 would just seem silly!
JSO – ta :)
