When I was in eighth grade in math I got really bored and memorized pi to the 75th digit or something.  Let's see if I still remember... :D.

Well I was thinking along the lines of 15:92 - which would be a convenient time in the working day to really celebrate National Pi Day :)

But by all means don't let me stop you celebrating at 1 in the morning ;)
