+Kaarin Spier , I've heard *many* musical interpretations but the one you linked to is the most melodious, thank you! Definitely worth a listen, all!

"Don't talk to that guy, he goes on forever." Classic!

Re: the sound of pi, they need a warm-up band! The Golden Mean perhaps?

Things to do on Pi day, via +David Crowley : http://www.wikihow.com/Celebrate-Pi-Day

My favorite: convert things into pi to utterly confuse people who have no idea what you are talking about.

OMG, let the pee jokes begin ;)

+Dimitra Chrysouli , we use practically every Greek letter in science. For example, ρ with superscript 0 refers to mitochondria that have lost virtually all their DNA and cannot respire.

"What is Pi?"

A mathematician: "Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter."

A computer programmer: "Pi is 3.141592653589 in double precision."

A physicist: "Pi is 3.14159 plus or minus 0.000005."

An engineer: "Pi is about 22/7."

A nutritionist: "Pie is a healthy and delicious dessert!"

+Alexander Ortenburger , Pi in biology is the symbol for inorganic (i) phosphate (P).

Oh no, not at all +Dimitra Chrysouli ! The names we give to subunits of any protein are named after the Greek alphabet..not just alpha, beta and gamma, these go all the way to zeta and theta :)

+Jim Knyght , 2π R better than 1! :D

These are great. Happy pi day!

should't 22nd july also be known as pi day as pi is also known as 22/7 which seems far more accurate than 3.14xxx???

+Sudhanshu Pathania People do celebrate on that day, but we call it "Pi Approximation Day". 22/7 is a popular approximation, but only to 3 significant figures. 22/7 = 3.14285.... pi = 3.14159... So celebrating "Pi Moment" at 1:59AM on 3/14 is the way the serious geeks do it.

Also, to address the subtext in the original joke - if your friends don't get it, get better friends!

Not a pi joke but an iJoke, a poor joke:

A poor joke or PJ is a complex number that can be expressed as P+iJ, i.e. the poor part is real and the joke part is imaginary....

just re-telling.

Geeks are not always lonely.. look at me I've got the best-est friends ever... :)

Sometime back, ther ewas a discussion on beauty of the face..I want to relate that to the tipping comment you made.. Here is a question to everyone. Everyone tipping style is different and it depends if you are a regular etc.. The question is why would anybody tip on a roadside diner, which you know you may not visit again or its so rare that you will not be distinguished among the other travellers? What does this behavior have to do with face if any...
