Why Europe is Going to Spoil The Epic Pi Day?


In a few short days, it will be Pi day. A sort of Geek holiday because the date will be 3/14 which will be the same as the mathematical constant of Pi, 3.14. But this year it will be even more special because PI to the 9th place is 3.141592653, which translates to 3/14/15 at 9:26:53. Neat huh? But Europe is going to ruin it for all of us. Bastards.B_YjQKPUIAAkh9l.jpg-largeThe European way of displaying the date, is the day is first, and the month is second. i.e. The 14th day of March, 2015 or 14/3/15. Those jerks! Don’t they know that this will cause all kinds of problems for the rest of us on Pi day? I mean think of all the Geeks out there in Europe that will want to have some kind of pie, which is the traditional food for Pi day.

No apple, cherry, rhubarb or even mince for the folks in the U.K. I mean come on Germany! What’s wrong with you Norway and Finland? Why are you ruining this for the rest of us? Did we offend you? We’re sorry, we really are, but you don’t have to ruin this awesome day for the rest of us, do you? So I beg you, please, please let the rest of us enjoy Pi day by you simply changing how your wrote the date, just for this one day?

And if you don’t, then you’re all just cotton headed ninny muggins!
