Pi Day 2018




Here at PhilosFX, we celebrate Pi Day with numbers. Our last Pi Day celebration, billed as One for the Ages, was posted at (wait for it...) 

3/14/15 @ 9:26:53

And as if to prove the point, we did not mark Pi Day in 2016 or '17. Kinda tough to beat that particular alignment of digits! 

But today, something happened that reawakened this urge to call attention to our favorite irrational number. Today: 

  • is not only the 10th annual Pi Day (first observed in the US on Mar 14, 2009), 
  • and is not only the 139th anniversary of the birth of Albert Einstein, but today 
  • we also mourn the passing of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking at the age of 76. 








Here is a look at our blog stats for this Pi day as compared with the measures taken three years ago and with our first Pi day seven years ago.
