Matt Parker is out with his annual “calculate pi” video:

You pagans and your “Pi Day” worshipping. True math geeks know the real day of celebration is Tau Day on June 28th. Celebrations of “Pi Day” is like opening presents on Christmas Eve. It’s like celebrating Festivus. It’s just plain wrong.

your rong.

The Traditional of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. I’ve got a lot of problems with you people!

Me: why is there not quite enough wrapping paper to cover this cabernet?

You: happy early pi day!

I’m partial to Pythagorean Theorem Day, personally. That’s where the sum of the squares of the day & month equal the square of the last two digits of the year.

Most recent one was December 16, 2020. (12-16-20 is a Pythagorean triple)

Next one is July 24, 2025.
Then October 24, 2026.

Then I think there won’t be another one until the century turns. At which point I’ll probably be dead.

Note that I didn’t spend a lot of time on this so I might have missed one. But since one of the legs has to be 12 or less, there’s a limit on how many Pythagorean triples make dates.

Le sigh.

Me: Merry Christmas (or insert any holiday here).
You: I prefer Thanksgiving.

it’s not even really about pi day. It’s about checking out an amazing bluegrass hip-hop band. Their latest album hit #1 on the billboard bluegrass charts this year. Gangstagrass’ ‘No Time for Enemies’ is #1 on Billboard Bluegrass Chart | EURweb

I still have a scoby hotel but haven’t made kombucha in a few months. Summer will change that.
