Pi Day is Upon Us...

Vi Hart: Pi Is (still) Wrong.



Vi argues against Pi, and for Tau. Even if you disagree with her, I think you will enjoy the pies! And if you're not familiar with the controversy between Pi and Tau, I suggest you read http://tauday.com/

Especially take a look at these images

Personally, I am not taking sides! At least not for now!

Since tau = 2 * pi, one gets to eat two pies on Tau Day.

On the other hand, pi day, March 14, is also Einstein's Birthday, so you can have your cake and eat pie too.

If you missed Pi Day, you can still celebrate Pi Day on March 24th. That's Pi in hexadecimal.
