In entertainment: Tumblr took the wind out of Natalia Kills (a stage name) and Willy Moon (a real name), two judges on New Zealand X-Factor, after they disparaged a contestant for wearing a suit. There’s a new Earth-protecting season of Steven Universe. And five-sevenths of the original study group returned for season six of Community, the only show that ratings can’t kill. No word from our parent company on plans for a movie.
In the news: Protests on the UVA campus after student Martese Johnson was injured by police during an arrest. Also, the surprise reelection of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.
In a morbid blend of news and entertainment: Alleged murderer and confirmed documentary subject, Robert Durst sort of confessed to definitely killing them all.
In sports: The F1 Grand Prix—where you can actually crash for not driving fast enough—kicked off in Australia. Serena Williams broke her 14 year boycott of Indian Wells. And mass hysteria in basketball.
Happy once-in-a-century Pi Day, Tumblr! It will be another 100 years before the date once again matches the first five digits of π: 3.1415!
To celebrate, Mommy made me my very own carrot pi! I was a little suspicious at first of a pi that glows in the dark like a jack-o’-lantern, but I can never resist a fresh carrot! How much of this pi can I stuff in my mouth in one bite?
Three.onefouronefive.net is a website that allows you to search and view pi to one billion digits. While doing that, you can read cool little notes about certain digits of pi. (Thank you for submitting your site, Davidzgarden!)
My birthday 01/17/1997 ( or 01171997) is located at the 7,132,813rd decimal place! How about yours?
