It’s March 14 or 3.14.15 so Happy Pi Day! And Happy Birthday, Albert Einstein!
Today is March 14, 2015–also known as PI DAY because numerically it’s

because that’s the first 10 digits that represents pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. π has actually been calculated to 10 trillion decimal place.
