Yesterday’s best tweets that had nothing to do with pi
Yesterday’s date was March 14, 2015. It was not, despite what your high school math teacher or anybody on social media would have you believe, a holiday in any sense of the word. Occasionally, numbers line up and they sort of end up looking like other numbers. Of course, because some people wrote yesterday’s date as 3/14/15 and the first five digits of pi happen to be 3.1415, many decided that yesterday was an extra special version what has become known as pi day. Some people going so far as to say that the real magic would happen at 9:26:53 AM (again, because numbers).
Grow up, everybody. Most people probably have no recollection of what pi even is. They know it has something to do with circles, and that’s about as far as it goes. Oh, and the people who “celebrate” with pie? You can have pie whenever you want. Go to your nearest grocery store. I bet you there’s literally a table full of assorted pies right now. Those aren’t special leftover pi day pies. They’re always there. Just eat pie if you want it.
To celebrate the conclusion of that awful day, here are some tweets from yesterday that completely failed to mention it at all.
I was in a bar just now flirting with a fellow alcoholic and then she was like "I just started university." And she was 19. Europe is sick.

Indeed it is Ben, and it has nothing to do with the fact that they write dates 14-3-15, making yesterday just another day in March.

Did you guys even know yesterday was Einstein’s birthday?

Phallic pancakes? Yes please!
People who say they "like a challenge" have never been to the post office

Oh ho ho. A bold bit of commentary here. Spot on. Well played.
Days like today make me wish I had a man cave with 4 tv's and all the sports packages. So many sports, all tapered by a few hours.

While I hate the phrase man cave, I am in favor of this plan. It makes watching March Madness way easier.
I get all my weather reports from Snapchat filters.

I don’t know what this mean, but it made me chuckle, so on the list it goes!

David Crosby honestly answering a question that was just a Seinfeld reference? That’s A+ work, if you ask me.
Gonna buy an x-box

I considered excluding this one because it could have been a coded reference to circles and pi with the X-Box 360, but I’ll give Andrew here the benefit of the doubt.
it's sick that you can be 'interested' vs. going to events on FB now. still waiting for a 'considered going but didn't last minute' option.

Interested but definitely not going is my RSVP status for every event, ever.

OH NO! Couldn’t they have waited until today to tell him. The ides of March is a much better day to break bad news.
Last night I got to see @IdlewildtheBand fucking destroy the Roundhouse in London. Shit will never be the same. Electric melancholic fire.

Jay is Canadian and he’s in Europe. DOES HE EVEN KNOW ABOUT PI DAY!?
