The Joy of Flying

Will we ever get out of here?

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics estimate that 91% of long-distance holiday travel is done by personal vehicle and that only 5-6% by air.  However, of that 5-6%, my guess is that 100% of the travelers wished they could have boarded quicker.  "We can put a man on the moon but we can't get me in my seat with luggage stored any faster!?!?"

I bet you're thinking "I'm good at Tetris®.  I know I could load this plane better!"  If that is the case, check out the mathematics in optimizing the boarding process here.

Time to Get Your Pi On!

It's that time of year again!  It's the running (or walking, or even casual strolling) of the 6th Annual Ryan Sayers Memorial Pi Mile.  Get all your geek gear and join us this Saturday (yep, Saturday!), March 28 for our run/walk/enjoy the day!

Registration begins at 8:30 with the run starting at 10:00am.

Online registration is available at ImAthlete
