Ssshhhhhhhh, Don't Tell Cake: Happy Pi Day

March 14, 2011


Because today is 3/14 and those are the first three digits of pi, (followed by 32.33 -- repeating of course. jk jk) it's Pi Day and everyone gathers in the streets to sing traditional Irish songs and eat pickled cabbage or whatever. No? Different holiday? Oh. Well I'm not really sure how you're supposed to celebrate the constant of a circle's circumference to it's diameter, so I'll probably just use it as an excuse to drink until I can only walk in -- wait for it -- wait for it -- triangles. Haha, you thought I was gonna say circles, didn't you? WRONG! Did I tell you I actually thought I invented the word 'squircle' (square/circle hybrid) and when I looked it up online and found out it already existed I cried? That happened. No it didn't. You see, I don't cry. Or go to the bathroom. I do have a lying problem though. Seriously, I can only sleep on one side or I wake up dizzy. Huh? Yeah I started drinking at noon, why?

1. Time-lapse of Pi dominoes being set up and knocked over (complete with multiple mishaps!)

2. What pi sounds like (and not the gurgling it makes in your belly with ice cream)

3. That girl from the snakes video (Vi Hart) throwing a fit about how pi is wrong.

Hit the jump to watch them. Me? I hate circles. THERE I SAID IT.

Mathematical! of the Day []

Thanks to Christine, Peter, sarah, Jake, Aaron, SQUARE and whoever else sent me something that I couldn't find again because searching my email for 'pi' pulls up waaaaay too much boner pill spam.
