Pi Day is here

Hey readers: What do you get when you cut a jack o’lantern by its diameter? Give up?

Pumpkin Pi! Bahaha!

Today is March 14, a.k.a. 3/14, a.k.a. Pi Day, an international celebration of mathematics.

To celebrate, you might want to download a math-themed smartphone game and try to use it as a substitute for your usual mobile time suck apps. Or, if you’re really inspired, check out some of the Khan Academy videos and brush up on your trig.

Of, if you truly hate math, you can watch the film Life of Pi or, you know, eat some pie. Since today is also Einstein’s birthday, you actually have two reasons for a celebratory dessert, so, you know, don’t hold back or whatever.

Today is also the day MIT hopefuls will get their acceptance notifications. Nerds!

Speaking of nerds, check out this Pi Day rap we just found:
