Pi and Einstein
I'm a mathy and I almost missed the geeky numerical date alignment of March 14th with Pi (3.14...). Thank you to an old math friend from The University of Waterloo who posted this fun fact on Facebook. On the 14th, my wife told me that Albert Einstein's birthday was March 14th which I hadn't heard before. In the evening, my daughter and I watched a family movie called Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. In a later scene, Jason Bateman's dry accountant character begins to feel the magic of the emporium and picks up an Einstein doll who appears to be talking to him. Nice geek coincidence.
