Happy Exactly Pi Day!

This is more than just Pi Day, as you must know if you read anything on the internet, but also (according to one way of writing calendar dates and times) exactly Pi right down to the femtominute. 3/14/15 9:26:53.58979323846264 (approxiately) Of course there must be a lot of dispute regarding exactly when that happened. CNN and the Weather Channel seem to think it was at about 9:26:53 AM Eastern Daylight Time (Atlanta time), but it could also have been at 09:26:53 UTC or GMT, although that leading zero kind of messes things up unless you use the convention that you can drop it except when writing 0926 UTC.
