What's all this Yankee crap about today being Pi day?

No - it's not. Today is 14th March, or 143.

Therefore, Pi day is 31st April, or 314.

Christ, next they'll be talking about Math.....

Have to deal with septics all the time, they get the date and time wrong, I tend to give them day spell month, year and GMT.

I tend to think of 22 July, as I am divided between accuracy and approximations? 22/7

Shouldn't that be Myfanwy?
No, Math fab Mathonwy, like Matholwch, is a character in the Mabinogion. The Mabinogion were written down between the 11th and 13th centuries but were probably part of a much older oral trafition. Myfanwy is a girl serenaded in the song of the same name, words by Richard Davies and music by Joseph Parry, which was written in the second half of the 19th Century.

That, @huwshpis , is complete loblocks, and I have it on impeccable authority. As it happens, fifteen or so large and helpful lads from Llanelly assured me that Mathonwy played lock for Bridgend when Max Boyce led the team to victory over Pontypridd in the Valleys Cup. And Myfanwy's father just happened to be the Mayor of Bayswater. So there, cleverclogs!;)

Don't tell Sir Ifor Williams, he'd have to hand his K back if he were still alive.
