  • Fellow geeks, rejoice. It’s Pi Day, the day of the year to celebrate the mathematical constant 3.14159265… (it never ends or repeats – amazing). Celebrate by throwing an “e” on pi, having a slice and doing some math. (NPR, Wikipedia)
  • In case you were wondering, Lady Gaga used 40 pounds of meat for that infamous dress she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards. (Esquire)
  • This guy wants to open a Museum of Food and Drink in New York City. I can dig it. (Esquire)
  • Sad story from the Chicago Tribune: “Last year, 51 men and boys were engulfed by grains stored in towering metal structures that dot rural landscapes, and 26 died.” (Chicago Tribune)
  • Coffee is about to get expensive, y’all. Curse you, global warming. (New York Times)
