    Hope none of our Minnisoda friends are reading this but I recall being up there visiting relatives back in the 1970's and noticing signs on what I would have called a "small pond" and the sign had the name of the "lake" on it! I mentioned to some of my relatives that I now understood how they got 10,000 lakes, just counted them after a rain storm!

    Maybe that's why I only get two Christmas cards from that state despite dad having nine siblings all of who stayed there, dad managed to escape! Must have been during a dry spell!

    Ridged calendars were the best and Snap-On were close. Had to be politically correct.

    Only have a Raspberry Pi, but it is bit crunchy. Could install it in the E-Bike as a brake controller.

    Pi never ends. How do you figure out how much pi you need? What if pi was square and not round? Would it end? Would it be better without cutting the corners? Are Wendy's hamburgers better because they don't cut the corners? How come Wendy's asked "Where's the beef"? It seems very clear ever other burger shop should be asked that as they cut the corners. How come nobody ever asked Wendy's, "Where's the bun"? It's obvious they cut the corners on the bun. What's up with that, the bun isn't as important as the beef? Did they hire a consulting firm to decide that? Was it Wendy's twisted way of solving the great mystery of how to put a square peg in a round hole? Speaking of which did Wendy's help develop the Heimlich maneuver? It's astonishing 14 zillion clueless glutens haven't chocked to death cramming the square burgers with cut corner buns into their pi holes? Now when you ask where's the beef, they tell you they replaced it with some kind of plant based crap. Why is your mouth referred to as a pi hole? Was it designed to eat pi? It's also referred to as a cake hole. Is cake better than pie? How come pi is round and cake can be any shape? How come there's a cake boss and not a pi boss? Why is there no such thing as birthday pi? How come no one ever says, let them eat pi or have your pi and eat it too? Why the *&^%$#! would you take it if you can't eat it? Somebody else might have enjoyed it you selfish b--tard!

    I purposely avoid reading this thread, because I like everybody to be able to have a little fun, and I don't want to have to be the one to throw cold water on that if it's just iffy on whether it's within the Forum Rules.

    That one was the most totally over the line example of forum misbehavior that any of us have ever seen here at HEF. It's really disappointing...

    That thread....

    It was never going to be "classic" here on HEF. There are many, many outlets across the net for that kind of BS - if you want to engage then have at it in those venues - just remember we will not tolerate that here.

    Why can't pie be squared.
    I have heard of square pi before
    But would you need to have 3.14159265... cups of filling?
