Greetings, fellow nerds. Today is our most important holiday: Pi Day. (Also, who’s getting ready for two years from now when stuff is about to get really crazy?)
Here at EW we pay a lot of attention to the geeks, but on this oh-so-nerdy-day, we thought we should honor those with advanced degrees in mathematics. (Really get the party started, you know.) To some, nerd may be a derogatory term, but think again. Nerds are the characters who get stuff done and solve problems. While everyone is flailing about, nerds are hacking computers, reasoning logically, and inventing awesome gadgets. So take pride in being called a nerd, you will one day rule the world.
To celebrate the nerdiest of holidays, let’s honor our favorite TV nerds. Since it’s a math holiday, we tried to stick to the nerds who would have won Math Olympiads, but if anyone wants to make a case for Abed in the comments (I mean, he did have a pretty logical and reasoned argument in his Who’s The Boss? debate), have at it. We included Sherlock, Bones, and Topher because we’re pretty sure they know their way around a geometry proof. Chuck and Huck can hack a computer with the best of them. Super agent Sydney Bristow had to bring Marshall along with her on a mission because she couldn’t do calculus in her head, so he definitely made our list.
Quit trying to convince your high school calculus teacher (or current boss) to buy you pie, and vote! READ FULL STORY »
