I think that's true for all Europeans, actually. We Americans are the only ones who use the Day/Month/Year format
I thought so too, but the Russian exchange student standing right next to her said they go month/day. I guess Russia isn't really Europe. Anyway. Not something I would have put together on my own.
Well, they could celebrate it on the 3rd day of the 14th month--that is, February 3.
We use the day/month format in Australia too. I wonder what they do elsewhere in the world, and who has the majority?
Besides from having day/month in the Netherlands...There's a couple of days that certify as pi-day, see also Wikipedia.A nice rant why 'we' shouldn't join you on the 13th of march :) see Zenoli.netI prefer April 26: "The Earth has traveled two radians of its orbit by this day (April 25th in leap years); thus the entire orbit divided by the distance traveled equals pi."
It would be some trick to celebrate pi day on April 31. April has only 30 days.
Instrinsic you are blowing my mind, getting all mod12 on it.Tania if I had to guess, it seems like day/month wins. That's how we wrote it in the Navy, too. Not to mention, when are we going to finally get the metric system?Calvin thanks for the nice links! I think pi approximation day (22 July) is pretty cute. And also that zenoli has a "peevishness" tag. L Downing yep, that's why they "can't" celebrate it.
I just discovered your blog the other day. I'm a 2nd year math teacher in Oakland, California. I bookmarked you right away :)Not sure if you're familiar with Dinosaur Comics, but this one has been a favorite of mine.http://www.qwantz.com/archive/000955.html"Failure is just success rounded down."
