Geekdom is as Geekdom does

Fun fact of the day: MIT releases its undergraduate admission decisions at 1:59 pm today.  (That is, at 3.14159).

  1. I think of myself as a geek but it took me a while to figure out the connection between 3.14159 and 1.59 pm. One is not helped by the fact that the connection only works if one uses the slightly illogical, American method of writing the date. Now, if they had released the data on the 31 April…

  2. What Paul said.

    I really struggled with this thinking surely they have it wrong, 1.59pm is actually 1359 so they’ve got their digits in the wrong place, so to speak (!).

    Only to be expected from the people who brought us 11/9, I suppose.
