And of course I scheduled this to post at 9:26am.

  1. No schadenfreude pi I see.

  2. 9:26 Eastern but OK; that gives me 2 or so hours to order up a coconut creme pie.

    Mmmmmmmm, coconut creme pie…

  3. Did you have a camera operator, or did you manage to set the timer and then pose?
    No, wait. Don’t tell me. Knowing would ruin the magic.

  5. … except that April has only 30 days! D’oh!

    In which case it occurred on 3-1-41 when the Europeans will have had other things on their minds.

  6. It was indeed a very special pi day.

    I figured you would post something even though you are so busy, because of course, you like pie.

    Our kids’ school did a whole week of activities, which I thought was wonderful.

    And yes — Gene Wilder IS Willy Wonka.

    So – it is “Pi in the Face! Pi in the Face!”

  9. You have the wings to fly
    I really do like pie

    Our local baker is making a lot of the ones you usually have to special order. The only choice is what flavor of diabetic coma do you choose for your descent.

    Your scheduler lacks the accuracy to specify 9:26:54 (rounded)?

    I’m looking forward to next year, which is going to be the correct approximation to 4 decimal places (3.1416). Get your rounding right, people!

  12. Why are the treats in this picture round? Everyone knows that Pi R Squared!

  13. What I like most about the photo is that it appears as if John may actually be attempting to catch the pie Krissy’s throwing with his mouth. That’s what I would have done too. I mean, why let something like that go to waste, right? Exactly.

  14. i would never do a pic like that unless I had people I could give the pies too. I am a human trash compactor. That is a dangerous thing for someone wirh a sedentary job to do.

  15. Unless Scalzi is intentionally trying to lead us all astray or blow up the internet I don’t understand the, er, math, behind 3.14 (3:14:00) and 9:26 am.

    @lee s: And, of course, you can use the entire number pi. 3/14/15 9:26:53.589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148…
    (Gotta go now. I’ll come back and put the rest in my next comment.)

    “What happened to the pecan?”

    Members of the Scalzi tribe believe that pi = 3.136

  18. John, your family gets my vote for first people to get immortality. You guys are awesome.
