When will this stop?

Ok, now it’s just getting annoying. Odd day? Give me a break.

My thoughts on this irritating trend can be found here, here, and here.

    How can you possibly be growing tired of this? I’m all set for tomorrow’s “Sum of Squares Day” (5=4+1, 8=4+4, 9=9+0), which only happens like 56,324 times a century! Or Saturday’s “61st through 63rd digits of the decimal expansion of arccos(11/16) day”! I’ll be giving away arccos(11/16) cents to the person who celebrates that day the most zealously!

    These “math holidays” make me want to shoot myself in the face … well, except “Pi Day”, which is saved only by it’s association with eating pie. That one makes me want to put a pie in my face.

    Someone should tell that guy that 1905 is not the next odd number after 3.

    It’s true, these holidays are stupid and annoying. I’ll grant exceptions to Pi Day and 61st through 63rd digits of the decimal expansion of arccos(11/16) day, because everyone knows those days rule. But as for everything else – I’m over it.
