It's a happy occasion for number nerds

(Newser) – Microsoft is offering 3.14% off Dell tablets today, notes Time. The Your Pie pizza chain is offering pizzas for $3.14 all day in the Southeast. And Caltech students began a pie party at 1:59am featuring 130 pies—26 varieties of five each. Which, as the Pasadena Sun points out, makes use of the digits 3.14159265. It is, of course, Pi Day, a celebration of that all-important number in math—possibly "the most important single number in the entire cosmos," writes Phil Plait at Slate, who offers a detailed explanation on why that's the case. It also happens to be Alfred Einstein's birthday.

Get your cheap pizza and go home and surf for some porn. The real men are out looking for a different kind of Pi?
