There is a close friend of mine who reads Packergeeks almost everyday (though curiously, he never comments on the site). Anyway, my guess is that he’s pretty excited today because today is the math holiday called Square Root Day (3/3/09). Read here for more on Square Root Day. While we here at Packergeeks are definitely geekish with our Packer madness, we can’t touch this kind of math geekiness. (To think, someone somewhere this morning got up with a slightly swifter step and extra positive outlook because today is Square Root Day…it really makes you think about how we’re all different, in some cases very different.)
Anyway, this close friend of mine, when we were young, obnoxious teens, once yelled for many to hear “I love math”. Girls were even present. Imagine a kid saying this to other teens. It went over like Eleanor Roosevelt on a fashion runway. Sure, he did eventually get his PhD by age 26-27 and became a successful, tenured professor at a high quality University by his early 30s – but still, I’m not sure anything justifies a public exclamation like “I love math” in front of teen cohorts.
Anyway, anonymous Packergeek friend, daily -reader-no-commenter, are you celebrating Square Root Day?
