Vi Hart's Apple Pi and Pumpkin TauToday in the U.S., it's time for the Thanksgiving feast!

You're not supposed to play with your food at the table, so let's play with your food before we get it to the table! Just to keep things clean, we'll play with it mathematically.

As Thanksgiving is a US holiday, it's just another day of the week in Britain. Brady from Numberphile grabbed some Numberetti, which is alphabet soup with numbers instead of letters, and took the can's challenge to heart:

Coming back across the pond for Thanksgiving, the meals in the U.S. require a little more preparation.

Don't worry, though, Wolfram|Alpha is here to help! In the widget below, put the weight of your turkey in pounds into the widget below, and select whether you're cooking at a standard or high altitude, then click Submit. A pop-up will then tell you exactly how long to cook your turkey!

Wolfram|Alpha also provides other information, including nutrition information, if you go to the site and ask how long to cook a turkey.

If you really want to go all out, however, it's going to be tough to top the efforts of Vi Hart, who has made a complete mathematical Thanksgiving dinner! My personal favorite is the Borromean Onion Rings:

Speaking of dinner, I'd better get back in the kitchen and do my part. To everyone in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving!
