Happy Pi Day (and Einstein’s Birthday)

March 14, 2007 | By | 5 Replies More

March 14th, (3/14), is International Pi day for a somewhat obvious reason. Visit this old site to hear Pi spoken in French (or many other languages) to hundreds of digits, plus links to much pi stuff.

Here’s the wiki for pi day.

Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day 1879, and later redefined the way space curves.

    Actually, THIS was the guy (tammet) who remembered Pi to 22,500 digits.  Click here.

    and on Letterman, he shows that he not the "average" savant, in that he is quite articulate and funny


    Also, here is the "human google" who can read a page of writing in 10 seconds, with 98 percent recall (unless it is legal jargon, of course!). But it has taken him decades to learn other things we take for granted.
