And There is the mention of pi in the bible:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Kings+7%3A23&version=KJV

http://www.abarim-publications.com/Bible_Commentary/Pi_In_The_Bible.html

There are always the infinite series involving 4*arctan(1.0) and the famous approximations 22/7 and 355/113, the subject is rich and beautiful.  Wonder what we can do in pi day (March 14, 2011)?

It will be on a Monday :)
