It's Pi Day! Happy 3.14.15. You'll be able to celebrate this momentous occasion only once in your lifetime, so I hope you have something good cooked up for tonight. I myself will be living it up with many different types of balls and discs, a digital tape measure, and the apple, blackberry, cherry, and coconut cream I've put in an order for from my mama. Oh, and also this rad feat of mathematical art, The 6 Million Digits of Pi poster.

Fine. Six million is an exaggeration The poster has only 5,942,157 pi digits in its 18" x 24" area. At 0.7 pt in size, or 10 times smaller than 7 pt., that's about 5,940,000 more than the naked eye can see without a magnifying glass. Which is why Pi visualized creator ExaText Posters includes one with every Six Million sale.

The Six Million Digits of Pi poster consists of black print on a white, high-quality glossy poster stock background. If its digits were all printed in a single line, that line would stretch over half a mile. If the poster's font size were a standard 12 pt, it would stretch 6 million miles. Or at least 3.14 miles.

Enjoy your pi today, dudes.
