Square Root Day

The lesser-known sister of Pi Day.

(Hey, dates and math.  What could be better?)

BTW, speaking of Pi Day, the other night I was in the bedroom trying to take a nap before heading out to a meeting at church.  I heard ~K~ in the bathroom getting ready for bed singing:

“3 point 1 4 1 5 … 9 2 6!’

“3 point 1 4 1 5 … 9 2 6!’

“3 point 1 4 1 5 … 9 2 6!’

over, and over.  His enthusiasm grew over time and his volume increased as he emphasized the 5 and the 6.

I asked him about his song the next day, “Why were you singing about Pi?”

His answer: “I was trying to memorize the first 8 digits of Pi.”

Naturally.
