Almost Slipped My Mind to Approximate Pi Today

Today is Friday (always a reason to celebrate in and of itself), July 22nd, 2011.  Better known as ‘Pi Approximation Day‘ in mathematical circles (har har).

Why approximately and not definitively? 

Because if you divide twenty-two by seven, you get pretty darn close to the real deal.
