Happy Square-Root Day!
Geeks rejoice! It's 3-3-09. That means it's National Square Root Day. There are only 9 of these each century, or about the same frequency of occurance as honest politicians coming out of Chicago. So take a few minutes to grab the desk calculator and calculate the square root of something.
TRR POP QUIZ:
Question 1: Name the date of the next square-root day?
(For bonus points) Question 2: If only 9 occur each century, how can the 22nd Century feature twelve(as my smart-aleck wife pointed out) square-root days?
Leave your guesses in the comments thread.
