The Ides of March of course, is famous because it was the day that Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back 23 times by the members of the Roman Senate. It's humorous to me that people like to say that Latin is a useless dead language and yet there are definitely elements of the Roman culture that are still influential today as well as a slew of words that are taken directly from Latin that we use every day (agriculture, sinister, gubernatorial..).
Anyway, yesterday was Pi Day (also Einstein's birthday) and today is Ides of March. It's a geeky holiday week. Enjoy!
