Happy Pi Day! 3

Sure, it’s corny, but math types need their holiday, too.
I’ll leave it to you to figure out precisely what time of the day corresponds to this approximation of π:

Mathematicians in 2000 calculated π to the quadrillionth digit and have found no repeated patterns, which would eliminate π’s standing as a transcendental number.

    OK, this now means I have to tell you my geek math joke (one of them, anyway).

    If you want to calculate the volume of a pizza (a frequent need for most people, to be sure), it’s “pi * z * z * a”, where z is the radius and a is the thickness.

    Lots more mnemonic than pi r-squared h.

    Happy Pi Day to all! Not that I have a clue about of all of this, but any celebration is great!
