Happy chip and pi day

This is of no practical use whatsoever, but today happens to be National Potato Chip Day. Here's some history of the chip, which dates back to 1853. Thank you for your marvelous invention, George Crum.

March 14 also marks Pi Day, since pi is approximately 3.14. So if you haven't had lunch, I guess you could celebrate by buying some Doritos and discussing Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler. Sounds like a banner Wednesday to me.
