1 Pi, 2 Pi

Yes, the growth of LGBT rights is great, but it’s also great that being a nerd is now cool. In fact, the coolest guy in the United States is Nate Silver, who is both a nerd and gay (www.fivethirtyeight.com).

So, marriage equality is cool and everything, but we can also care about the injustice of celebrating Pi day (March 14th or 3.14) when we should really be celebrating Tau day (2Pi or 6.28). Check out the controversy.

You may object, but if there’s no Pi day, when will a get to bring a pie to math class? Easy, peasy – on June 28th, you bring two pies!
