Pi Day

Couple things.

I just realized that I hate Pi Day. Because suddenly it’s everywhere and everyone thinks it’s cute to celebrate it. It was funny five years ago. Now it’s just silly.

Because most people in America probably don’t even know what pi is. Whenever I see someone say, “Happy Pi Day!!” I want to scream in their face, “YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT PI IS DO YOU?”

So I think from now on anyone who celebrates Pi Day should be required to solve a real-world problem using pi first.

On the other hand, perhaps it’s appropriate for Americans to celebrate the most basic of geometric concepts. It fits with the average level of math education in this country.

P.S. Don’t even get me started on the people celebrating Pie Day.
