As a former math geek, I found this interesting. And I can see their point.<br><br>

Tau!!<br><br>
Although, we can't replace Pi Day with Tau Day! Whatever would we bake for Tau Day?

Oh yeah I've heard about this before. <a href="http://tauday.com/" target="_blank">Tau Day website</a> and there is <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=jG7vhMMXagQ" target="_blank">this video</a>.<br><br>
Tau does make some sense bu pi is just cooler. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

Two pies.<br><br>
Also, this is a perfect idea. Why? My reasoning has nothing to do with circles, or exp, or anything mathematical or food related. It's because every singly ****ing time a maths genius appears on a tv show, he or she has to know pi to a ridiculous number of places that nobody would ever ever need to memorize for any reason other than to show off. And I always think, do they think pi is the only constant mathematicians care about? Have they never heard of the Golden Ratio? Have they never heard of Euler's Number? And does anyone think that anyone cares about the 115849th digit in any of these numbers?

Two pies.</div>

<br>
Would that be each pie has to be doubled? But if each pie is doubled, then won't we have to bake a second pie for each new pie and so on and then it would be an infinite number of pieeees~ :p
