Pi Day is observed on March 14th each year, when the month and day (3.14) make up the first 3 digits of the mathematical constant π (pi). Popular ways to celebrate Pi Day include eating pie and discussing the importance of the number. But you know what? That’s SO boring and, well, predictable… and especially ironic considering Pi is an irrational number. That means Pi’s decimals digits are never repeating or “predictable”, since if it did ever repeat, it would become predictable as you had seen the pattern before!
I propose something a helluva lot funner… and harder, to truly celebrate Pi Day and give it its dues. BE IRRATIONAL ALL DAY ON PI DAY!
And how does one go about being irrational?
For Earth Day 2010, I made a pledge to eat better and have added periodic updates to define and refine the pledge, as well as update on progress. This is the latest one and involves several topics I’ve encountered since my last update.
Did you know that in Nova Scotia, farmers get 80 cents per food dollar spent when selling directly to customers, like at the farmers’ market, compared to 9 cents when selling to retailers? (The Coast, July 15 2010)
For Earth Day 2010, I made a pledge to eat better. By “better”, I meant healthier and better for the environment. Translated that meant better quality food and more locally grown. However, I wasn’t going to die for it, as oxymoronic as that may sound. After all, by eating food that don’t have what I need, I’d be shortening my lifespan if allowed to live out on health alone, so I was implying I’d rather die for bad food than good food. What I was committing to was a practical lifestyle change rather than something extreme.
This is the first of many installments I hope to blog about changes I have incorporated into my life towards my Earth Day 2010 pledge to eat better.
I did not create these three Facebook picture tagging memes, but I did improve their quality and optimization for Facebook usage. I do not know from where they come so there is no source link. These memes involve Japanese cartoons, but not the anime type that has people in them. These are Pokemon and some other cartoon brand with which I am not familiar.
