Happy Tau Day!
« on: June 28, 2017, 11:58:08 pm »
As of the day this post was created (June 28, 2017), today is Tau Day! This is like Pi Day, except this day celebrates the virtues of the true circle constant, tau (= 2pi).

Read The Tau Manifesto here.
Check out some more information here.
The following gif should give a geometric explanation of the number itself:


Please, tell me your opinion on the tau vs pi debate below!
Should we use tau? Should we stick with pi? Should eta have a say in the matter?

Regardless, a happy Tau Day to all! I'll be eating full circle-shaped foods today, instead of only half circles.
