Happy Square Root Day!!!
 
Quote:

Tuesday is Square Root Day, a rare holiday that occurs when the day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits of the current year. Numerically, March 3, 2009, can be expressed as 3/3/09, or mathematically as √9 = 3, or 3 = 3 3 = 9.
"These days are like calendar comets, you wait and wait and wait for them, then they brighten up your day--and poof--they're gone," Ron Gordon, a Redwood City, Calif., teacher who organized a contest intended to publicize the event, told the Associated Press. The prize, or course, is $339.
Celebrants are expected to mark the occasion by cutting root vegetables into squares or preparing other foods in the shape of the square root symbol.
Square Root Day occurs only nine times in a century. The last one occurred on February 2, 2004, and the next will occur in seven years on April 4, 2016.
Square Root Day isn't the only humorous holiday celebrated in the math world.
Now go out and have a piece of PI.

I'm sure this is why Tiny woke up in such a good mood!!! :punk:

It sure is Dare! As a matter of fact, we're taking the day off! :p

Happy Square Root Day everyone! Don your festive pie pan hats and drink 3.14159 beers and eat carrots and potatoes covered in horseradish! (Get it, they're "root" veggies) :punk:

Hey, now that I think about it... Are french fries "Square Roots"? :rofl:

whoever had the time to figure that out needs to get a girlfriend b/c he has way to much time on his hands. uuum, happy root day though.

Let me repeat.....

Mathematicians.

Mathematician and girl friend ARE mutually exclusive, right?

jgano23 03-03-2009 03:44 PM

here's an equation for mathematicians: 1 math geek + 1 lame math holiday = 0 dates

if you can't figure out how this equation adds up you are a math geek and you will never get any dates. :D

Haha why are yall associating Pi with square root? They have nothing to do with each other.

By the way I just looked it up and Pi day is 3/14. Whooo hoooo! Two nerdy holidays in one month.

jgano23 03-03-2009 04:21 PM

^math geek :D.

Could it be because we are not math geeks???:rolleyes:

PI is better. (at least we could make a square cobbler!)
