A friend notes that today is 3/14, and therefore pi day.
I suppose on the other side of the Pond, pi day is celebrated on 22/7? :)
It is, in any case, a good day to brush up on P-I-E . . .
So who's done any mathematical con-notation? The Okaikiaran
equivalent of pi is actually equal to 2pi, denoted by a small circle
(no chance for confusion with zero in their writing system), and
simply called by the word for "circle" (which is "arkan", the only
cross-linguistic pun in Okaikiar to date).
