Happy Pi Day, internet geeks!
Pi Day 2014 is upon us, and if you haven’t yet seen the annual outpouring of love for math, the number 3.14, and arbitrary holidays, you picked a good year to get in on the fun.
Pi Day has been increasing in profile year after year thanks to services like Twitter and Facebook. Grownups that liked math better than sports often mark the day in tweets and on other sites, and kids are learning about math through Pi Day activities in schools and during other activities.
In recent years, big brands have even started getting in on the Pi Day love, boosting their Q rating to internet geeks with tweets like this:

There are nerd jokes:
Why do people get excited about Pi Day? Who knows, it’s completely irrational. #HappyPiDay

Of course, there are always dissenters:
Who needs Pi Day when the very universe is shaped like a donut? Every day is Torus Day. pic.twitter.com/tID9hy8r7B

But they too were buried in pie:
