Pi Is NOT That Cool, And Here's Why (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Relax, everyone. Pi isn't that great. At least that's the word from "mathemusician" Vihart, whose new YouTube video was posted just in time for Pi Day.

"While everyone else is building up how great pi is, I'm here to tear it down!" she says.

Using some colorful sharpie drawings and -- of course -- some math, Vihart goes on to show us why all the extreme enthusiasm for our favorite irrational number just isn't, well, rational.
