If March isn’t Mathematician’s Month, then it should be. Especially this year.

- Today is Square Root Day. 3/3/09 (3 is the square root of nine.) Square Root Day only happens nine times a century.
- March 14 is Pi Day. 3/14. However, since only techno-geeks write the date like this 3.14, Pi. 3/14 is actually .2142857. 3 divided by 14. I think Pi Day should really be 2/14/2857. Now that would be a party. BTW: Pi approximation day is July 22, again stretching credibility. 22/7 is approximately Pi.

Basically these are Sloppy Rebel Mathematician Holidays. Close enough to party, but not accurate enough to get you published.

March 14 is also “Steak and a Blowjob Day”, but there’s nothing mathematical about that. 🙂

Brian…also wrote this…What An Atheist Sees When He Looks At His ToastLOL, I love your title! Maybe this “holiday” is on one of those fun calendars that list every holiday throughout the year–any excuse to party though, right? 🙂

@Sandy: Nancy and I are such party animals! NOT. But when we do throw a party, they are Epic if I do say so myself. Oh, blog post coming on!

GoingLikeSixty…also wrote this…Leave It To Cleavage Meets MaHellYeah JacksonBen loves Steak and a Blowjob Day. Although I don’t make him do Valentine’s Day, so technically he isn’t entitled. But I also enjoy steaks and BJs.

I also love Pi. I’m such a geek that some friends and I started a Pi fan club in college and had Pi t-shirts.

BTW, your blog today reminded me of a math problem I helped my son with back in ’07, lol…I even blogged about with a picture. If you want to see my math nerd side, you can click the link and few my lengthy solution to dividing polynomial by polynomials, lol.

@Sandy: Ouch, I skimmed your post and it still made my head hurt. Why would one need to do what you said? Can’t you just Google it?

@Mark–I googled when we ran into the problem but the explanations were short and didn’t sink in–when I finally conquered it, I wrote a more thorough explanation, lol. 🙂
