In England and the rest of Europe there is no 'Pi day' because unlike america, Europe uses logic in it's dating going from smallest to largest. 14/3/09 instead of 3/14/09.

9/11 is really 11/9.

Actually, IMO the most logical would be smallest to largest. In the days before date/time variable types, we used to put dates in the format: "YYYYMMDD.HHMMSS" That way, we could do sorting functions on them.

I made it through the first couple of questions and then had to go do something else. I'll continue it later.

In that case, you should just celebrate pi day on July 22.
