Default Happy Pi Day!

It's only March, so here in the northern hemisphere nothing's really ripe yet despite the ridiculously lovely weather. Shall we break out the peaches we jarred last summer, or pick up a can of pumpkin? Or we could try the tempting single serving pie in a jar and make a whole range of flavors. With Cosine frosting. mmmmm cosine tastes just like mint. Did you know that cosine is like holly, and you need sine and cosine to cross-pollinate or you won't get any berries? We had this whole patch in my backyard growing up.... wait, sorry, I'm getting off on a tangent. I tend to do that; it's an asymptote of getting older. You lose some functions, and you end up talking about something imaginary and you sound completely irrational.

Something something something integral.

Hi there, Neo! Good to see you around.

A year later, I'm still trying to figure out how you started a new thread in News. But happy Pi Day!

For me, Pi Day was Nye Day. I went to see Bill Nye speak, and annoyed the crap out of him.

Fun fact: When you say "I'm going to be the next Bill Nye" to the man himself, it doesn't go over quite as well as you might think.

How? I clicked on the big "New Thread" button. My permissions say "You may post new threads." Is there some reason I shouldn't be able to? (or are you saying "No, you rude bint, I meant you should have started it in some other forum!" in which case, oops, please move it.)

No no, I was exaggerating. I know exactly why it was possible: last time we changed forum software, I must've forgotten to set special permissions for this board. Hell, for all I know, everybody can see the secret staff board too.

(Just kidding. Oh, not kidding that there IS a secret staff board; every forum has one. Kidding that I don't know if you can see it. I can check that just by logging out.)

I'm a little alarmed that you think I'm capable of such passive-aggression. But now that you mention it, this does belong in Misc, so I'll move it. There will be a time for a Pi Day thread in News -- namely, next time I'm not too busy with school to update on the day itself.

Snicker snort. I've been spending too much time with certain in-laws; sorry. One does occasionally forget that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

Happy Pi Day! Although it's been pointed out that March 2014 is Pi Month, so we get to enjoy it a bit longer this year (for the only time all century).

My crusts still suck, but even my sister who has a culinary degree uses the Pillsbury ones, so I don't feel so bad about it.

As long as it's Pi Day, what do people feel about the Tau Manifesto?

Does it state that iota eta pi?

Hmm, no, it's boring by comparison. I don't see any need to change from pi, which is nearly twice as fun to draw as tau.

Out of a combination of laziness and sheer amusement, I made a batch of brownies in a round cake pan instead of a square one. I'm finding the "pie-slice" brownies to be oddly more satisfying than the usual rectangular ones. I may not do them in a square pan again!

On this Pi Day we've lost Stephen Hawking, who had a brilliant mind and a wicked sense of humor.

Sorry, I forgot that we had a Pi Day thread. I refer you to my post in the Link Thread.
