    I knew a guy who was an engineer and owned a small factory. Every year on March 14th he would have a catering company bring in enough pies to feed the entire plant on all 3 shifts,,,,,,, 3.14 Pie Day,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    In the U.S., but not really international. ...In Europe they note today as 14/3/24. They don't ever get a slice because 31/4 (April 31) doesn't exist.

    My strategy is about collecting what I intend to keep, not investing in what I plan to sell.

    A special day for me and my handle! I rounded to 3 decimals to obscure it just enough that most people don’t immediately notice.

    I once memorized 628 (200*pi) digits to win a school contest. I can still do 100 easily.

    Here’s a coin with a cert number ending in 3141!

    My kids always like Pi day....for some reason it is just fun for them, I think because it was always brought up in school. Was not a thing when I was a kid as far as I can recall.

    No pi coin. Wisconsin cheese is as close as it gets. Photo courtesy of PCGS coinfacts.

    No pi, but close - a transposed one:
    .
    Going to have a slice anyway - maybe I’ll put it behind me before I eat it? Uh, no.
