I never thought I would see a supermarket ad based on a mathematical symbol . . . .  [rolleyes2]

That's cheatin'! Spring isn't officially here for 6 days!

Actually, there is one more disagreeable event associated with PI day.  My alma mater U.C. Berkeley is having a major fund raiser directed at the alumni.  So what did my esteemed institution choose as a slogan to go along with my intellectually sophisticated Ph.D.?   They couldn't of anything more uplifting than "The Big Give"  [rolleyes2]

https://biggive.berkeley.edu/

So why is the supposedly #1 public university in the world forced to stoop to a slogan that hardly seem mature enough for even middle school children?

Needless to say, neither my wallet or I were fooled by this silly business.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard
