National Tau Day?!

Mathematicians want to dethrone pi. I hate this idea. First they took Pluto, and now they want pi? What's next? Some half-baked notion that humans and apes come from common ancestors? Suck it, Science!

All that work into the calculation and memorization of pi and they want to change it? Bastards!

Wait, what? So for area calculations instead of pi x r^2 it would be 1/2 x tau x r^2, no no no! I think a long line of mathematicians are going to be spinning in their graves!

I've got a kid starting Algebra I in August, so this is important. Don't confuse me, mathematicians! I have a tough six years of helping with homework ahead of me! High school was a loooong time ago...I'm a middle-aged mom!
