Happy Square Root Day 3/3/09


I bet you didn't know it was Square Root Day. Don't feel bad. I didn't either. Rob clued me in. Here is the Wikipedia entry explaining the holiday. There are only 9 in each century. The next Square Root Day is not until the year 2016, so party really hard. That might begin by learning how to take square roots by hand, extract responsibly.

While mathematicians would argue Pie Day always existed we just hadn't discovered it yet,Jay has suggested the following apocryphal origin of the Pie Day Holiday.

It's a holiday founded back in the '40s by a group of students who felt they weren't getting enough wedgies.
