Party Like It’s 3/3/09

CNET News reports that today "is Square Root Day, a rare holiday that occurs when the day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits of the current year. Numerically, March 3, 2009, can be expressed as 3/3/09, or mathematically as √9 = 3, or 3² = 3 × 3 = 9." A lot of people have been doing the math lately, and things just aren't adding up. Father Z reports that the next Square Root Day is 4/4/16. Maybe things will add up by then.
