Happy Pi Day, everyone…

… for the mathematical geek in all of us… You know who you are. How you live for those grand moments in your personal calendar year. Like 10-10-10, or 12-12-12… You might even go so far as to take the trouble to sniff out those extra special, once-in-a-lifetime types of dates. Such as 11-12-13, or the last binary day those of you reading this are likely to experience – 11-11-11. Some of us even take it down to the second. 11:11, 11-11-11 But that only works if your watch is updated to the US Atomic Clock every night. Like mine is. If you’re gonna geek out anyway, you might as well go whole hog, and be accurate about it. Otherwise, you’re just playing at geek-dom. Those of us who’re serious about all of this shall laugh at you to your face. Ha ha… ha ha ha ha. Now, go away, or I shall taunt you a second time… Nee!   Photos found here.
