American Pi: US Population Hit 314 Million People

Americans
celebrate Pi Day on March 14 (3/14), but earlier this week on August 14,
we celebrate something kind of related:

Just after 2:29 p.m. EDT today, the American population reached 314,159,265,
or pi (3.14159265) times 100 million, according to the Census Bureau’s
population clock.

"This is a once in many generations event … so go out and celebrate
this American pi," demographer Howard Hogan said in a statement
from the Census Bureau.
