    Default March 14 = ASGARD DAY!

    ok
    so

    March 14 is traditionally celebrated as Pi Day by mathematicians, math teachers and math classes... since Pi is approx 3.14


    In the episode of SG-1, Thor's Chariot, where Daniel met the Asgard for the first time, he deemed himself worthy by, in effect, representing Pi on the wall...

    on the wall with the shapes, Daniel drew a radius in the circle...

    Pi = Circumference / diameter
    Pi = Circumference / (2xRadius)

    Pi is one of the most important and significant numbers in mathematics... so much so that its calculation spread across every major civilization of Antiquity from Egypt to Babylon to India to the Hebrews to Archimedes in Ancient Greece...


    And since Daniel drew the radius inside the circle, he was in effect visually representing Pi
    Since the circumference was already shown, by adding the radius, he depicted the number Pi as a relation of the circumference and radius of a circle...
    As Carter said: "Pi is the formula for finding the circumference of a circle by measuring the radius."
    technically, Pi is not a formula, but a mathematical constant as already stated above.

    and if I am not mistaken, regarding the runes on the wall, Daniel translated them as 3 14 15 and 9 or 3.14159



    Ergo, I do declare, that hereforth March 14 shall be celebrated by all Gateheads as Asgard Day...
    Colonel Jack O'Neill: So what's your impression of Alar?
    Teal'c: That he is concealing something.
    Colonel Jack O'Neill: Like what?
    Teal'c: I am unsure. He is concealing it.

    March 14 is more reasonable, for without Pi, we never would have met the Asgard... and proven ourselves worthy of being blessed with their knowledge...

    HAPPY ASGARD DAY.... it has been for 3 hours here
    A word of advice... there are creatures that live between this dimension and the next, fiendish creatures that feast on the suffering of an entire world to satiate their eternal hunger. Support the Gateworld Cantina or suffer the fate of all who fall into the clutches of the 'Eladrith Ynneas'

    We need to make Asgard day a bank holiday...maybe if we make it into a religion we can...now that's a plan!
