That's so interesting! And it reminds me again that people of that time weren't quite so different from us. ;)

Sweet or savoury?

That looks delicious, but I feel it's stretching the definition of "Pie". :lol:

Oh noes! I missed Pi Day on a Fri Day.
Now I know why they were asking people on TV how much approximately pi was.

I always wonder, when they air such stuff on tv or the radio, where they just ask unsuspecting people on the streets, how many of the answers they air. Do they only collect the most amusingly wrong ones, do they put them in any kind of order? Because, frankly, the answers are always quite depressing (not just when it is about pi) - I'd like to think they are only airing the "funny" ones.
From about 10 or so people they asked about pi, only one I think knew that it was approximately 3,14. Others were far off or didn't even have the foggiest idea.

Don't worry - Pi is infinite. ;)

You mean like enough pi for everyone.
