Pumpkin Pi

(Pumpkin) Pi (3.14) is only a scary number is you try to remember it out to 100 digits. UC San Diego engineering students turned pumkins into pi last thursday, as the rest of the country prepared to turn pumpkin into piE. (And if you don't think people eat pumpkin pie on halloween, two different San Diego restaurants were sold out of pumpkin pie this weekend.)
