I Need Your Help, West Coast Nerds!

There is a battle a brewing. An epic battle of nerdery.

You may recall that recently I single-handedly1 invented the gangster sign for pi.

Day 253

That is one tough looking chick doing the gangster pi sign.

Well, as with any gang, it turns out that there is a challenger on the horizon. One Dr. Daniel has decided to challenge the world to the first ever Interwebs Gangster Pi-Off! And apparently my gangster pi sign of awesomeness was not good enough for him, so he invented the East Coast version, seen here in the photo I’ve stolen off his blog2

Oh no, you di-int just flash the *East* Coast gangster pi sign!

To enter the Interweb Gangster Pi-Off, you need to go to Dr. Dan’s site and read the rulez. The rulez basically being that you have to send him a photo of YOU doing the gangster pi sign. Like young Rick here who, being a Calgarian3, displays his best west coast gangster pi sign:

He sees your west coast ganster pi sign and raises you an eyebrow.

You can do either the west coast symbol or the east coast symbol, but we all know that the cool kids will do it west coast style. And you must do it before Pi Day! I’m sure I don’t need to remind you that Pi Day is March 14 – I trust that you are all well along in your Pi Day Party planning, yes?

  1. Wait, it was actually double-handedly, given that the sign requires the use of both hands []
  2. Oh yeah, I stole it. Stole it like a boss! []
  3. At least for now. We are trying to save him from the horrible fate that is living in Calgary []

    I love this post so much, it makes my eyes bleed tears of a unicorn. A UNICORN.

  2. Dan says:

    Also – stolen pictures are the best of the pictures.

    You are so going down Snow. Going down hard.

    Apparently my comment on your original blog posting got lost, where I astutely pointed out the so-called “West Coast gang Pi sign” is actually the “upside-down isoceles triangle gang sign.”

  10. Beth says:

    @Kalev – You didn’t comment on my original blog posting. You commented on my Flickr photo’s page. And you are just as wrong now as you were then – it’s clearly gangster pi sign. I would know, seeing as I am the innovative genius who created it. And didn’t anyone ever tell you not to mess with pi gangsters, punk?

  11. Kalev says:

    Beth, all I can say to you is that you’re being completely irrational.

  12. Beth says:

    Damnit! You just stole the punchline for my Pi Day posting! 🙁

  13. Kalev says:

    My hilarity is infinite. As is my cunning.
