I know, I know there are a lot more serious things to contemplate than the date but it just occurred to me (remembering some very elementary geometry) that a triangle with sides in the proportion 3, 4, 5 such as 3", 4", 5" or 33 miles, 44 miles, 55 miles is a right triangle, i.e. one of the angles is 90 degrees--this may not seem real important to you but to someone in the building trades (say, someone laying out the base of a great pyramid, for instance) this is an interesting bit of info to have on hand--'course there's always the sloppy or drunk or sloppy drunk pyramid builder who doesn't give a shit whether the base of hir pyramid is square or not however we will pay them no mind since they take no pride in their work--we should take pride in our work, no?
