Beware The Ides Of March

Sure everyone knows Julius Caesar was perforated on this date back in 44 B.C., but do you know what the "ides" are? Like most things in life, the answer can easily be found online. You can thank me later.

As sad as that date is, even sadder is the fact that I missed out on celebrating World Pi Day yesterday. Then again I have a hard time knowing when St Patrick's Day is, much less a holiday celebrating "the mathematical constant that has beguiled and bewildered successive generations of numerate scholars since the days of ancient Babylon. "

On that note: am I supposed to wear green tomorrow? When is St. Patrick's Day? How does that work?
