...and the winner kills and eats the loser!

Tau attacks!

Pi counterattacks!

Someone need to come up with a theorem that noone can prove to get all these Maths guys into something creative. Or next thing we hear, someone will start explaining how the Euler's number need to be replaced. Or something along these lines.

PS: I had been following on the whole Tau thing...

How about a proposition that asserts its own unprovability within a certain formal system?

2 Pi or not 2 Pi.

It always seemed odd to me that we used the diameter for pi, and then cut in in half. Why didn't we just start with the half diameter?

Tau is very 2 dimensional. Those of us who live in three consider 4*Pi to be the optimum constant.
