Happy Birthday Einstein! Remembering Stephen Hawking. Any other "geeks" out there wanna join me?
I thought it was Pie day.......was thinking abut buying a pie. :-))))
I'll join you if you have any lemon meringue.
Great day for quiche or pot pie! Not shepherd's pie for three reasons: I can't make it, no one around here carries it, and I always start to think of Mrs. Lovett ("peppered with actual shepherd"!).
Well, pies are how one celebrates pi day! We had fudge. Yum.
Even though I was good at HS geometry (stunk at math, though), I realized the use of Pi when I bought a house and wanted to put a mulch circle around a tree and edge it with plastic edging. Then I learned I don't need to take Pi beyond the decimal, because the edging came in 20' rolls.
Some kids in my son's third-grade class had a Pi contest: how far out can you memorize and recite Pi? DS won, closely trailed by the girl who had a huge crush on him through high school. He is still such a math kid. Won't write an English essay to save his life but took Differential Equations for fun.
And finally, the Purdue engineering school cheer, according to my dad (I can't type in math on my tablet, so forgive the modern English representation)
"E to the x, dy, dx
E to the x, dx.
Cosine! Secant! Tangent! Sine!
And to this day, I take Pi out to 5 places (even though edging comes in 20-ft rolls).
Let's hear it for Big Bang Theory where Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Elon Musk and Bill Nye have all guest starred. So have George Takei and LeVar Burton but they probably don't really count . Oh, it's on tonight - maybe they'll do a Pi special.
Aw. Big frowny face. I thought, wouldn't that be cool? Son is home, we're both geeks and what a way to wrap up the evening. They're showing one that aired in January.
Scoop: Coming Up On Rebroadcast of THE BIG BANG THEORY on CBS - Today, March 14, 2019
^^ And Steve Wosniak and Bill Gates. Also Stan Lee, Adam West, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher. And the voice of Leonard Nimoy. And William Shatner will appear sometime this final season.
A rerun? That's too bad. sigh, I will miss this show.
Lots of places have specials today especially pizza places.
A nice slice of pizza pi would be great! Lol
My daughter just brought home a cherry pie and an apple pie---$3.14 each at our local grocery store.
I made an apple pie today for PI day.
I'd love to have a pizza pi(e). The one in the picture looks delicious, Raven.
