Posted at 11:25 a.m. on March 14, 2014
Resident Capitol Hill physicists Reps. Bill Foster, D-Ill., and Rush D. Holt, D-N.J., are doing their small part Friday (3/14) to commemorate the infinitesimal mathematical construct known as pi — by dishing out homemade baked goods.

“Pi Day,” the annual celebration of the non-repeating, never-ending figure revered by “mathletes” the world over, has become a cultural happening involving food, fashion and pop culture references.
Holt and Foster are feeding into the phenomenon by offering guests the chance to fill their belles while expanding their minds.
“We’ll have a variety of homemade pies … [and] a competition to see who can recite the most digits of pi,” a Foster aide said of the scientific shindig scheduled to take place at noon in Longworth 1224.
All are welcome. (But you may wanna download a scientific calculator app on your phone on your way over.)
