Want more pi? Timing is everything

Dig in!   (Photo by Len Rizzi) 
Pi lovers will have it made on 3/14/15.  Not only will they get their usual helping of annual pi, but they will even be able to lick the platter indefinitely.

That's because the date for this year's Pi Day encompasses the first five digits (3.1415) of the famous mathematical
constant rather than just the first three.

Paul H. B. Shin of Good Morning America points out that if you devour your pi at 9:26 a.m. and 53-plus seconds, then you stand a chance of being infinitely in sync with this luscious ratio (3.141592653...).

So go ahead, grab that circular crust and have your way with it.  This is one time that you’ll be so busy counting decimals that you won’t even have to worry about counting calories.
