US population reaches pi x 100 million

Stuff reports:

Figuring out the number of American residents got as easy as on Tuesday (local time) as the United States touched a rare mathematical and demographic milestone.

The Census Bureau said that the United States reached 314,159,265 residents, or the mathematical ratio pi times 100 million, shortly after 2.29 pm.

One of my party tricks at school and university was that I could cite pi to 20 decimal places off memory. As you can imagine this was a huge hit with the chicks 🙂
