    It is BONfire...

    Guy Fawkes (13 April 157031 January 1606), "The Gunpowder Plot" was a plan to assassinate the Protestant King James I (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England, by blowing up Westminster Palace during the formal opening session of the 1605 Parliament, in which the king addressed a joint assembly of both the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Fawkes was in large part responsible for the later stages of the plan's execution. His activities were detected before the plan's completion, and following a severe interrogation involving the use of torture and a trial in Westminster Hall before Judge John Popham, he and his co-conspirators were executed for treason and attempted murder. Fawkes's failure (or the attempt) is remembered by Guy Fawkes Night (also known as Bonfire Night or Fireworks Night) on 5 November.

    That's not the exact value... It's only pi to the first million degrees. Pi goes on forever, and thus a million degress is nothing.

    Anyway the thread was meant in fun as I am sure the whole Pi Day concept is. Obviously that is lost on some people.
    Oh maths? thats why I don't know it. (I'm dyslexic and cannot do maths no matter what I try.)
