Submission + - It's official - March 14th is National Pi Day

whitefox writes: The scoop from CNet is that the "The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a resolution introduced two days earlier that designates March 14, 2009 (3/14, get it?) as National Pi Day. It urges schools to take the opportunity to teach their students about Pi and 'engage them about the study of mathematics.'" I doubt it'll ever become a national holiday — but the Pi string in the article is pretty cool in a nerdy, sorta way.
