Pi or Tau/2 Day?

Posted 14 March 2011 - 01:30 PM

So I woke up today to have Vi Hart rock my long held reverence for Pi...



So this makes a lot of sense to me... but I didn't know that Pi was under attack!


My favorite troll so far in the comment has been this one:

Quote

nightwriter: Only a Liberal would come up with something like this. Pi was good enough for our American forefathers and it is good enough for us! "American as apple Tau" just sounds stupid. I'll bet Obama is behind this.


This literally made me ROTFLMAO

Ugh. Only a do-nothing far-lefter would sit around all day and find a reason to bitch about pi. Really? You had probably plenty of time sucking up welfare making that stupid song. Go get a job you bum! Hell - go help out at a decent christian charity or soup kitchen! I am so tired of people making up stupid random math or engineering holidays. (Yes I am looking at you October 23 aka "Mole Day"!!!). Yeah and if I hear anything in about a "binary day" in October or November like I had to suffer through this January I am going to take a FLAME THROWER TO THIS PLACE.

God... we wonder why this country's going to shit. No motivation except on the frivolous junk. Tau can burn in hell with the rest of the sinners, devil worshipers, and terrorists!

The idea is sound, and I've seen people replace 2pi with random characters as well, I myself have.

But the level of devotion on both sides. It's a freakin' number. I never understood people's infatuation with Pi, and of course people are now becoming infatuated with this Tau number... converting to Tauism, horrible pun buried in there as well, ugh!

And Pi-day??? I'm w/ modi... burn it with fire!

I'm for standards though, and a symbol for 2pi would make it much easier for the younger folk first learning trig, and shit it would even make the oldfag's jobs easier as well.

So instead of having a 'Tau-day' or making a 'Tau-song'... how about just use the fucking number when you need to use the fucking number. Instead of a damn shirt with Tau on it, how about a few more mathematics paper's with Tau in it and defined as such. Done... it becomes a standard. All it requires is a simple note at the top:

Tau = 2pi

and any twat who wants to complain about your use of an arbitrary symbol in your paper can eat a fat cock because that's all algebra is!

I must say though, I LOL'd at this paragraph!

What if you have to divide Tau by 2? Do you get Tau/2 or Pi? Who the F cares!

@ I like binary day and palindrome day. :(

The tube steak was a too pink and springy for my liking. The P&BJ was an odd combination, and there was quite a mess to clean up afterward. I won't be doing that with crunchy peanut better again. Creamy or not at all!

Its not really that much more expensive. I always ate out though and maybe made one meal at home a day if that. So far I'm actually saving money buying raw vs eating out. I plan on getting a hydroponics setup going in my garage to grow most of my stuff to save even more.

As for bowel movements well, switching from take out to raw they've actually been better. Just saying
