The Pi Contest is now closed. All entries submitted from this point forward will not be considered valid entries and not eligible to win the pies. THANK YOU to everyone who participated and be sure to check out TSTO Addicts tomorrow when we announce the winner of the FREE Pie!
Are your eyes hurting yet? How about your brain? Thing is…that is only a teeny tiny fraction of the numbers in π or Pi. So why on earth am I telling you all this? Well did you look at the date today? Go look…I will wait…
Today just so happens to be 3-14 or in the world of Geeks, Pi Day. As 3.14 is the short short short version for the symbol Pi. (Click here for more info on Pi.) Not to mention one of the Geeks of ALL Geeks, Albert Einstein, just so happens to have his birthday fall on 3-14. Seriously! It is quite a celebrated day. The College Kids at Princeton REALLY get into it each year. Just check this out.
Now why on earth am I bugging you about all things geeky and nerdy while you are on a sight about the Simpsons? Well let me explain. For one thing, Bunny is a full fledged Geek Girl and I LOVE me some Geek Boys! You also have THREE very loud and proud geek characters running around your games right now. Comic Book Guy, Sideshow Bob, and Professor Frink. (Not to mention the other members of Mensa. Can YOU name them all?) These geeks are very proud of their intellect and show it as often as they can. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm guys with intelligent brains…so HOT!!!
Sorry…got distracted there for a minute. Where was I? Oh yah, Pi Day. So in honor of my geeky nerds, nerdy geeks, and all in between…WE ARE GIVING AWAY A PIE. WOOHOO!! Mmmmmmmmm PIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!!! ***drools***. Now don’t you go and worry your lil heads, Bunny did NOT make this herself. (They wouldn’t let me. 🙁 )
So WHERE are the Pies coming from? Mr. Tod’s. Ooooooh. Even better, you don’t get just ONE pie…OH NO, us Addicts like to “sweeten” the deal…you will get to pick TEN mini pies. WOOHOO!!!! Just take a peak at their site and see all the mouth watering options. https://www.whybake.com/browse.cfm
Now comes the fun stuff…HOW do you win these delicious pies? It is really simple…
Step 1: Put your Origin ID or First name and Last initial in the comments below. (If we run into two names that are similar, your email address will be used instead.)
Step 2: Answer one or ALL of the following questions. What was your geekiest/nerdiest moment? What was your favorite/hated mathematical equation? What is the Ultimate Answer? Have you ever used Pi? Have you ever smashed pie in someones face or had it smashed in yours? Which Addict Team Member would you like to smash a pie on?
Step 3: Put the phrase, “PIE ME ADDICTS” in your comment.
Simple enough, right? Don’t forget to do ALL 3 steps. No corrections accepted. First time has to be done right. (Making yah think. 😉 )
The contest will close as of 11:59 PM EST on March 14th, 2014. Any submissions after that will not be accepted into the contest. Once the contest is closed, we will put all the Origin ID’s/Names into http://www.random.org/ and let the Geeky computer spit out a WINNER!
Once a Winner is picked, we will announce it here at Addicts on Saturday March 15th, 2014. We will then get in contact with the Winner via email (so make sure you enter a valid one in the email section when you fill out your information on the comment form) to make their pie selection and send them PIES! WOOHOO!
