Wasn't March 14 coincidentally the birth date of Albert Einstein?

What is the coincidence?

Give me any date and I will coincidently find someone who has a birthday.

was Einstein a great 'player' in the Mathematics of 'pi'?? I think most of that had been done by the 1500's!

Knowing that there is a constant ratio between radius and circumference
has been known for millennia. Egyptians, Indians, Chinese etc.

The approximation of 3 was used by many (in the bible?)

I think the reeks squeezed a circle between 2 polygons to get a good value.
Presumably that method could be used to get an increasingly accurate value
as the sides of the polygon increase?
