Happy Pi Day!
I’m looking forward to July 22 (and sorry I “missed” February 71).
How many digits of pi do you know?
I still don’t know pi beyond 3.1415926, but thanks to Randy Yaw, Mr. Pi Day himself, I know that I can enter the pi character on my computer using ATL-227 (notice the numbers are the same as 22/7, the approximation for pi).

Don’t you want to forward this video to someone who just did something stupid?
I remember a law professor who told me this exact thing after I attempted to answer one of his questions. Well, not exactly. I believe his exact words were, “Mr. Logan, that was certainly a baroque answer.” Somehow, it felt the same. I didn’t volunteer in that class for quite a while.
How often do we shut other people down with similar results?
Strangely enough, I became this professor’s unofficial IT support guy and helped him check cites for a revised version of his casebook. I asked him to be a reference for my first law job. Life is funny that way.
Suzuki’s Gladiusstyle.com is dedicated to the new-for-2009 Gladius motorcycle. Although the Gladius appears based on the engine used in Suzuki’s widely-acclaimed SV650/SV650S series, I must assume Suzuki wants to appeal to a different demographic.
The Suzuki Gladius provides a new definition of aggressive sport bike styling. With a trellis frame openly highlighting its chassis design, stylish five-spoke cast aluminum-alloy wheels and a bold, upswept exhaust system, the Gladius promises exciting performance. The proven 650 V-twin engine provides the power you crave. (Source.)
What is that around the model’s neck? An 80’s knit tie? A skinny scarf? A noose?
The site’s too extensive to be an April Fool’s joke, right? Ha! Ha! :-D
Have a slice of pi!
NOTICE: In no way should this post be interpreted to condone or encourage the senseless beating of those who can recite way too many digits of pi. It is just the failed humor (okay, the reposting of failed humor) by one who can’t remember more digits of pi than 3.1415926.
Scott Adams wrote earlier today about people’s names affecting their life choices. Apparently, people named Dennis are more likely to become dentists. With that in mind, what do you think someone named Adolph might do?
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding. You’re right. An Adolph might attempt to kill Barack Obama because he’s black.
Parents, naming your children is serious business. Please be careful out there.Hat tip: DRJ at Patterico’s Pontifications.
