2*Pi Day

Today’s date is 6/28, which is 2 \pi Day for those of us with 10 fingers (or toes). Some evil people might tell you that they think today is \tau Day, but this kind of propaganda shall not be tolerated; \pi is better (or at least no worse) than \tau in every imaginable way.

Coincidentally, 6 and 28 are both perfect numbers, so I declare today to be Perfect Number Day. This all goes to show the deep connection that \pi has with perfection. Or maybe it just demonstrates that sufficient numerology can be made to prove anything.
