Lightbulb Albert Einstein born 14 March or 3.14 in Ulm, Germany - 'coincidence'?

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on 14 March 1879. Now consider these 'coincidences'...


Ulm, Germany was the world's center of mathematics and physics in 1879.

14 March = March 14 in the US or 3.14. Yes, 3.14 = pi, which is the world's greatest mathematical discovery, or is E=mc2?


Also, on leap-years (like this year), 3.14 is the 74th day of the year. Does anybody know the significance of the #74?
