Pi Day 2012

Woot woot, its Pi Day.  I am not sure I can beat the creativity I discovered in last years post, so you may want to read it again!  Nonetheless, I will try my hand at Pi Day this year.

Did you know that the Bible references Pi?  Yeah back in 1 Kings,

 23And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about

30/10 = 3.  It’s an approximation, but such that a cubit is an approximation as well, it may have been more accurate than we think!

You some other great facts and information about the favorite constant of mathematicians everywhere here.

And to close out, I decided to check out a 3:14 verse from Proverbs, which happens to say

14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold. Proverbs 3:14 New International Version (NIV)
Who is the she, the proverb refers to?  Wisdom.  hm, that seems proper today.  Give that some thought, and eat some Pi, and enjoy the day.

Monkey Day

It’s Monkey  Day!  YEAH!

No, I am not exactly sure what you do on Monkey Day, except consider monkeys, or maybe pick insects and bugs out of your friends hair, or maybe we could be like King Solomon, and have some shipped our way:

22 The king had a fleet of trading ships at sea along with the ships of Hiram. Once every three years it returned, carrying gold, silver and ivory, and apes and baboons.1 Kings 10:22 (New International Version, ©2010)

My guess however, is that Monkey Day is just to help remind us of monkeys, those animals who share many things with us humans, and to remember that we have been given dominion or rule over them.

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Gen 1:26

And of course, any good ruler, is then, in turn a servant.  Since this world is God’s and we are his followers, we should always remember to take great care and concern around his creation.

So have fun on Monkey Day, the monkey’s will!

Go throw some poo!
