Pi day.

Well, I forgot to write this until it was nearly over, but happy belated \(\pi\) day everyone! Yes, March 14 is everyone's favorite irrational number day! (Although my favorite such number would probably have to be Euler's number, e, the base of natural logarithms. You can see how the two are related, along with i, the imaginary unit, the operations ‘+’ and ‘=’, and the fundamental numbers 1 and 0 in Euler's formula in my header above, which many people consider to be one of the most elegant and beautiful equations in mathematics.)
