Nuts to Pi Day

Well, it seems to be time for another simpering genuflection to the Gregorian calendar in the guise of lauding a transcendental constant. This is the same thinking that causes the doomsday chiliasts (to use Carl Sagan’s phrase) to get all het up any time there’s a date with three or more zeroes or sixes.

I’ve railed against the Vulgar Pi Day before, so I shan’t re-rant.

Isn’t “doomsday chiliasts” a bit redundant.

Nevertheless, something does need to be done with these chiliasts manquees, these neo-Lullists, these madonna-wannabee-cabalists, these calorie-counting, stone-worshipping, modern-day faux-druids, these pythagorean bean counters — no doubt they are even vegetarians. Nuts to ’em.
