Like most nerdlets, the concept of pi has always fascinated me: a number, yet undefinable, infinite. Of course, there was also the supurb movie Pi by Aronofsky, which only furthered its cult status. So rejoice pi-lovers, for today is Pi Approximation Day. This day is also Einstein’s birthday and according to Wikipedia, is the day MIT mails out acceptance letters. Wow, and I thought I was nerdy. If you’d like to know how to properly celebrate Pi Day, why just go here.
Well, I do have one other confession to make. Which is, I always wanted a tattoo of the symbol pi, but I always chickened out. Lame on so many levels.
In honor of this day, I’ve updated my blogroll with many shiny new links! Thank you to all who submitted, hope you’ll return the favor. I look forward to digging into them in the near future.
One more thing: its Brain Awareness Week!
How could I have forgotton? And, in honor of said week, Nick aka The Neurocontrarian actually interviewed me for his “I Am A Scientist” podcast series, last night. I’m sure I made a complete fool of myself, but you should check it out anyway cause Nick worked hard, and it was taped at a real radio station. So real professional-like. It will be up Sunday unless he thinks better of it.
