Happy Pi Day 2011! Today, pi lovers can celebrate this number for the 22nd year in a row. Founded by physicist Larry Shaw more than two decades ago, Pi Day has become known all over the world – both online and offline.

You can do whatever you want to do to make a toast to Pi – including stuffing yourself with your favorite pie. Here are some interesting things related to Pi Day. Last week, Robin shared a video showing us how Pi sounds when made into music. It is a mesmerizing piece of work, so if you haven’t seen it yet, go click that link.

If you are planning on throwing a party – whether tonight or some time later – make sure that you get your hands on these Pi Ice Cubes.

How many numbers of Pi can you recite from memory? The average person might stop at 3.14, but if you have good memory, and you want to show it off, try one million digits of Pi.
