06:31 pm - To pi or not to pi
Aww maaan... I loaded up a song just now, and the track duration was listed as 3:14. So I said, hey, this song is pi minutes long!
But then I realized, no, there are 60 seconds in a minute, not 100, so that's not actually equal to pi minutes. So I decided to calculate it. 3.14159265... minutes is very close to 3 minutes and 8.5 seconds. But 3:08 doesn't have the same ring to it!
Oh well, people call 3/14 Pi Day (hey, that was three days ago!) even though it's actually been a bit more than 3.14 months since the beginning of the year.
