Happy Much-More-Like-Pi Day

Last year was 3/14/15 which is, technically, the first five digits of pi. This year is 3/14/16, which is much closer to the underlying 3.14159 than last year's truncation.

As someone who works in an industry that really cares about sigfigs, Vi Hart's Pi Day rant video this year tickled me.
