Happy Square Root Day

Today is Square Root Day. I think it would be more fun if it were Square Dance Root Day, which would have been a fun "Mathnet" episode. Something like...

Turn your partner round and round, promenade left and don't fall down!
Take the month & the day, my dear, now multiple together and you've got the year!

I loved Mathnet when I was in grade school. I watched part of an episode a few years back on Youtube and concluded I must have been insane as a child. It's amazing how some of your tastes change from when you were a kid and some don't. I used to hate peas, but I love them now. I also hated watching the news and I still hate watching the news. You think it would be the other way around.
