Pi vs. Pie
professormariachi on Oct. 19, 2009
It's true, I must confess, my university education comes to naught when it concerns mathematics. I am an Arts scholar through and through, and no amount of prodding me with logic will help me to understand how the surreal world of numbers works. One of my math friends once told me that two and two do not necessarily equal four, and I gave up on that particular genre of learning then and there. Today is a pi day, I guess? One of my friends was born on 3.14â€¦ but then that's not technically accurate as pi. Nothing is technically accurate as pi, as it goes on until infinity. Yay. It's things like this that make math highly disagreeable to me. And yet, I once worked for nearly two years in an accounting department. Yeah, that was an enjoyable time. Oh, and rat pies are bad. In some places apparently people ate something similar when there was no other food. Makes sense I guess, but its just not my thing. And I hope it's not yours either.
May the force be with you
