Fascinating ......

Today's date is 3/14/15, which matches up nicely with the first five 
digits of pi, the ratio of every circle's circumference to its 
diameter: 3.1415.

What's more, at precisely 9:26:53 am, we'll have Pi Second: an even 
more magical time at which the date and time match up with the 
&#64257;rst 10 digits of pi, 3.141592653.

It's also Albert Einstein's birthday!

Happy Birthday, Al!  (relatively speaking)
