Just Not Into Pi Day

Happy March 14th Everyone!

I'm sure many of you have been greeted or have greeted others with "Happy Pi Day!" today. Perhaps you have taken advantage of businesses offering a free slice of pizza pie or coffee on the house with the purchase of apple pie. Take your nerdy winks and smiles of superior intelligence elsewhere, I'm just not into it!

I mean, how can we support a fake holiday for Pi when there is no similarly fake holiday for Avogadro's Number? Sure 3.14 is a big deal. Without it, how would Science Fiction movies be able to let their audiences know that the radio signal they just received from the Vega Cluster came from an intelligent source? But is the number of molecules in a gram molecular weight of EACH and EVERY substance in the universe any less important? Sure, Avogadro's number is huge (6.02 x10^23), but at least it has an end. With Pi, you can NEVER get to the bottom of it! I bristle at the blatant favoritism of Mathematicians over Chemists! It not right that we should support a ginned up holiday created for the sole benefit of Big Pastry!

If you want me to celebrate Pi Day, then you MUST join me in celebrating June 2nd as Happy Avogadro's Number Day! That should make the executives in the Guacamole Industrial Complex happy!

If there is misdirected outrage anywhere in the world, COUNT ME IN!



EDIT:
On a more serious matter, I want to note the passing of Stephen Hawking. Your synthesized voice will be sorely missed. It brings a smile to my face knowing that Stephen and Albert are up there, right now, playing dice together with God. It's uncertain if Schrödinger's cat is there too.

God's Speed (of Light) to you, Sir!

Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.
