Happy Pi Day

Today is March 14th. In honor of this special day, the Math Department at work is offering free Pi on a first come first served basis. I had pecan.

Here are the first 314 digits of Pi. Below is a link to ten thousand.

Little known Pi fact:
If you typed out one billion decimals of Pi the number would stretch from New York to Kansas.

Now you've got me craving pecan and pumpkin pies! Do you know how hard those are to come by in Switzerland?
