  • Happy Tau Day! :irishdrinkers:

    Tau Day.

    Tau Day is an unofficial holiday which is celebrated on June 28th annually. The purpose of this holiday is to celebrate Tau – a replacement for PI that sets the circle constant at approximately 6.28. It is considered to be anti-Pi because Pi equals a circle’s circumference divided by its diameter (3.14), while Tau represents a circle’s circumference divided by its radius. While some scientists have argued that Tau should replace Pi, Tau is still not widely accepted throughout the scientific community.

    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • Of course it isn't accepted - tau is for time constants, not radius-to-circumference ratios! Silly people... That's be like trying to use zeta for something besides damping ratio. Preposterous!

    Yeah, but you get twice as much pi.
