It is March 14th. 3/14. Pi Day. This is necessary. Has to be done.

It’s tradition. As are the inevitable “Pi is Wrong!” arguments.

    It is good to see how many people took time out to enjoy half-tau day.

  2. Patti says:

    Thanks for all the fun facts, Chris, although you did tell me about Mike’s phobia of fake moustaches last year when I met you and Mike in Ferndale, MI on 6/10. My friend Moonbeam had a fake moustache on that went with her Oddville outfit. 🙂 I remember you geeked out over it. That was cute. Anyway, I love the video, and I posted the link on twitter and I posted the video on my fb wall yesterday morning. (it’s after midnight here in MI. Pi Day is sadly over here. 🙁

    I remember Zoom, I used to watch that show all the time when I was a wee lad, I love the reference and the song is hilarious

    Hey thanks for answering xando’s question, Patrick! I actually had wondered that for a while myself, too.

    Thanks for the fun facts, Chris!

    Also of note: if you haven’t picked up the album yet, do! This song is also epic with the intro track included on the album.

    that was intense

  6. Patrick LeJeune says:

    The rapper is Howard “Dragon Boy Suede” Kremer, he is the host of the podcast Who Charted

    Huge fan, Chris – of the song, of H&P, of the multifarious Nerdist empire. Posted the karaoke version of the song on my facebook page today, and somebody asked a question I couldn’t answer – who is the rapper?

    *The ball with the skull in it is my bowling ball

    *On our album “Horses & Grasses” this track is exactly 3 min 14 sec.

    *Mike has a phobia for fake mustaches and couldn’t look me in the face while shooting


  9. Jara says:

    So can someone explain to me why is 14.3. PI day?

    (Also is there a European trollface?)

  10. Jen says:

    Also the birthday of Ben of Ben & Jerry’s fame.

    Also national chip day.

  11. It is also Albert Einstein’s birthday as well.
    I’m sure he’d be eating pie if he were still alive!!

  12. Ben Z says:

    That was the trippiest thing I’ve seen in a really long time.

    Jesus fuck that was creepy.
