Well, it is only pi day in a few places where the date order is mm/dd/yy and the mm is a single digit when the month is less than ten.

ISO 8601 that date and time values be ordered from the largest to smallest unit of time: year, month (or week), day, hour, minute, second, and fraction of second.

3.14.15 9:26:53 should be written:

2015-03-15 09:26:53

No pie there folks.

Glad I'm not the only one that finds this absurd and ridiculous.

Not only are dates arbitrary numbers but the date isn't 15, its 2015 and honestly who gives a crap about pi?

Pi - shmi. My uncle Letsgo the Bantam King Lozko used Chicken Math for all his business and he was never in debt.
Chicken Math has as its framework the dozens: twelve eggs to a dozen; ratio twelve hens to one rooster; coop twelve times longer than it is wide;
twelve months in every year; twelve inches in every foot; ach, the list is endless. He owned twelve shirts and twelve pairs of pants - no, that doesn't equal twenty-four pants - and he would never ride in a vehicle with twelve passengers. He lived to be eighty-four years old, do the math, and every year we honor his passing with a twelve gun salute.

As you can see from the photo above, the formula "Pi R Square" is absurd. Clearly, Pi Are Round.

Brownies or cornbread are square.

Phew, Donald, glad someone else sees the light.
Why, even the Pi People "round it off".
