Is anyone but me celebrating Albert Einstein's birthday today?
I like pi and I like pie, and I also like circles. But don't you think that it's more important to celebrate a man who revolutionized science rather than the convenient arrangement of the month and the day to match a certain irrational number that we all know and love.
Sure, celebrate pi day, but the truth is that nothing relating to pi ever happened on March 14th to prompt us to recognize this day as pi day. Pi could be any number, such as 9.12, and we'd still celebrate it.
March 14 marks the date of birth of a man who changed the world with his discoveries. The fact that we celebrate the birthdays of Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Abe Lincoln should make us more than qualified to celebrate Einstein's big day.
So enjoy your circular pie, but bake a small cake too, for Albert's sake. Shaped like a wormhole. With light particles. And the mass-energy equivalence formula written on top.
