If you have school-age children, you are probably well aware that Saturday is international Pi day. Yes, 3/14/15 bears a passing resemblance to 3.14159265... Now, the skeptics among you will note how weak this resemblance is:
- M/DD/YY is only one of many ways of writing dates (personally, I prefer YYMMDD).
- The calendar is arbitrary in any case.
- Base 10 is arbitrary.
