Happy Pi Day!

Pi Day 2014 posterIt’s the 14th day of the third month and that means it’s time for free pie brought to you by the math students and faculty at the University of Regina! Flavours on offer this year: apple, blueberry, pecan, pumpkin pecan and cherry. I know all this because my wife’s helping with the festivities and so the pies have been sitting in our deep freeze all week. AND I DIDN’T EAT ONE SINGLE PIE AND THAT WAS VERY HARD!!!

The math folk will be gathering in the UofR’s multipurpose room starting at 1:59 to hand out that pie THAT I DIDN’T EAT. There will also be math crafts and a lecture by Dr Shaun Fallat.

I’m told the lecture will be “fun.”

Actually, I know Shaun. He’s really funny. If you’re going to attend one math lecture this year, make it this one.

“I Have No Reason To Resign”

Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor addresses the media:

“I have no reason to resign. I’m going to go back, I’m going to return my phone calls, I’m going to be out doing what the people elected me to do, and that’s save taxpayers’ money,” he said with a smile as he stood at the doors to his office, which has been decorated with skeletons and cobwebs for Halloween.

I love Rob Ford so very, very much.
