The Maths geeks on this thread (oh, I see trouble coming for that!) may appreciate this little article from The Times today ...

OK lets split hairs - though I have none since I am bald (by choice)!

Pi is approximately 3.1415926 thus should we choose to be as sad as the American's in the above mentioned article we should atleast be as precise as possible, the exact time therefore will be on the American measure:

March (3) 14th (.14) 1.59 pm (159) 26 seconds (26) - the moment to break open their Apple Pies

However the 1.59 above is wrong, since it should be 1592 and 15.92 is not a time on this planet! This goes to what I have said all along - American's are not from this planet.

Britons can celebrate 22/7 (22nd July) which approximates to Pi.

For me Pi is useful for measuring the area and volume of my egg-head!
