Well, It's Another Pi Approxiamation Day

And as usual, I got nuthin'.
 22/7
There it is: 3.14285714      (recurring)
vs.  π          3.14159265....(irrational)

Too big by 0.00126448...

But still more accurate than the date celebrated in America as Pi Day: 3.14.
So maybe they should rechristen March 14 as Pi approximation day.

Scientific American has a special three-article freebie to celebrate:
The Pi Approximation Day Package


Anyway, I'm thinking of some southern peach cobbler:

Approximately pie.
