Happy Pi Day! How are you celebrating? I’m celebrating by firing off our post roundup at 3/14, 1:59 … then doing no more math for the rest of the day, except for the stuff necessary to conduct daily life. That’s zero math, for all you “numbers people.”
I think it would be so cool to be good at and interested in math. Always have. But math was the bane of my high school existence. See, my junior high let the “smart kids” skip 8th grade math, and take 9th grade math instead. However, my teacher was out for over half the year, the substitutes didn’t really teach anything, and by the end of 8th grade we only had got through about half of the textbook. I passed the New York State regents somehow, then began high school with 10th grade math… with my last full, proper year of math education being in 7th grade. I never really caught up. But if you DO love math, I hope you do some great … theorems? … today!
That was all just a tangent (SEE. MATH) to bring you the posts you may have missed this week. I couldn’t derive (MATH) a theme from them otherwise, so sorry if this doesn’t add up (MATH FOREVER. I’M REALLY TRYING.).
- Shows You Should Be Watching If You Aren’t Already: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s hilarious, it has an all-star cast, it fills the Parks and Rec-sized hole in your feel good tv schedule, and it’s all on Netflix!
- What Can I Do For Fun During Daylight Savings Time? Because DST is seriously some weird conspiracy to make us all sleepy and out of sorts. But yay, afternoon sunshine?
- What The World Was Like Then: Zoolander Edition. We’re all super excited for the Zoolander reboot, but let’s not forget how very long it’s been since the last one. We took you back to the world of 2001.
- Identical Song Twins. After the Marvin Gaye/ Robin Thicke/ Pharrell suit, we looked at some other songs that seriously sound exactly alike.
- Silver White Winters and Crisp Apple Strudels: The Sound Of Music Tour. The Sound of Music anniversary has one of our fav movie-musicals in the spotlight again, but how many people loved it enough to take a SoM-themed European tour? (Traci. She did.)
