Date with π

Message from the math department at my school:

π=3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062…

How many decimal places of π can you remember?

Two? 3.14, that is very normal.

Five? 3.14159, that is marvelous.

But you can easily remember 9 decimal places like a genius.

This only happens once in our life: 3/14/15, 9:26:53, or 3.141592653, your centennial appointment with π.
