Maxwell's Tau Day Discussion #Fail

Maxwell: Hullo, Mister Mousie.
Did you know today is Tau Day?

That's math-speak for two Pi.

You know, 2π ? As in 2 x 3.14?

 
... are you listening?


Now, as I was saying, we Tauists feel the more superior number isn't Pi, which is 3.14.

It's clearly Tau, or 6.28.

And since Pi Day is celebrated on 3/14, for obvious reasons we chose 6/28 for Tau Day.

6/28 for 6.28 ... get it?


Now, if you'll just bear with me a moment Mister Mousie,
I'll elucidate on exactly why Tau is a far more logical and elegant representation ---


Hey, wait ....
Where are you going? I was just getting started!

poor Maxie ....

  11. That moussie was distracting you from your purpose. I hope you captured it. In the meantime, I will go read the Tau Manifesto.

  12. Maxie, we guess that mousie was more of a humanities-type mousie.

  13. Then Mom Paula pipes up (former math teacher) and says pi is more than 3.4 so the tauists are incorrect that their number is more accurate. MOL!

  15. I didn't know the Tau day. I knew about Pi day. I think it'c cool for scientists and math students to have another one reason to celebrate :D
