Have you checked out the date today?! Today just so happens to be 3-14 or in the world of Geeks, Pi Day. As 3.14 is the short short short version for the symbol Pi. (Click here for more info on Pi.) Not to mention one of the Geeks of ALL Geeks, Albert Einstein, just so happens to have his birthday fall on 3-14. Seriously! It is quite a celebrated day. The College Kids at Princeton REALLY get into it each year. Just check this out.
As if Pi Day wasn’t enough.. today is ULTIMATE Pi Day…go ahead start geeking out! Just what is Ultimate Pi Day? At exactly 9:26:53 am this morning it will be 3.141592653 the EXACT starting sequence of Pi…AND for a brief moment between 9:26:53 am and 9:26:54 am that the clock will match Pi down to an infinite number of digits…pretty cool huh? Enjoy it while it lasts, because it won’t happen again for another century!
So just why are we sharing all of this with you? Because when we think of Pi Day…we think of PIE!! So in honor of all the geeky nerds, nerdy geeks, and all in between…WE ARE GIVING AWAY PIE. WOOHOO!! Mmmmmmmmm PIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!
We’re giving away Pie?! You’ve got that right! In honor of Pi Day we’re giving one lucky Addicts reader a Pie Sampling from Grand Traverse Pie Company!!
Now comes the fun stuff…HOW do you win these delicious pies? It is really simple…
Step 1: Put your Origin ID or First name and Last initial in the comments below. (If we run into two names that are similar, your email address will be used instead.)
Step 2: In the comments tell us what your favorite kind of pie is.. (is it Apple, Peach, Pecan, Shepard’s?)
Step 3: Put the phrase, “PIE ME ADDICTS” in your comment.
Simple enough, right? Don’t forget to do ALL 3 steps. No corrections accepted. First time has to be done right.
