Happy Tau Day!

Happy Tau Day! Celebrating τ = 2π = 6.28..., which simplifies all the math formulas that include 2π to make one full turn around a circle. At our house, we'll be having tacos, and tequila, and tarts. Check out the Tau Day manifesto, especially the excellent video by Vi Hart, linked at the bottom of the page -- http://tauday.com/

(Coincidentally, it's also the Perfect Day, because 6 and 28 are the only "perfect numbers" that appear on a calendar --  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_number.)


Edit: A full course of full circles for Tau Day!
