Pythagoras was right. The Greek polymath once said that everything is numbers. Today-and presumably on 9/9/09 and so on-we thank him for his foresight.

In that spirit, we scoured our internets for anything with the right angle for a Friday afternoon, or just anything eight-related. Here's what our brief dragnet turned up:

-In the New York Times, illustrator Ben Schott breaks down the eight's place in history.

-The Chinese discuss why today is a lucky day for the world to be watching them.

-88BoaDrum causes drum-induced deafness in Los Angeles and New York.

-The Submarine Channel, a nonprofit production and online distribution platform, hooks up the impatient with the aptly named, "Forget the Film, Watch the Titles" database. Be sure to check out the awesome sequence for The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

-Obama and McCain gain (or lose) points for their pop-culture tastes.

-8 words: free, customizable topographic maps for your weekend adventures.

With a weekend full of that unifying Olympic spirit, we say turn that h8 to its side and see the infinite possibilities out there.
