Happy Pi Day

Today is Einstein's birthday and International Pi day, or rather, International day...

For the nerds among you, here's Pi to 100 places:

π ≈ 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510

I'm a geek. I had it memorized to the first 25 places, I think, in college. I still remember being in a bar once and this Navy Pilot asked me what I was majoring in. (I went to college where all the Naval Aviators were trained.) He was drunk, I was not. I told him Applied Mathematics and he said, "Oh yea? Prove it to me. What is pi to 10 places?" I rattled it off and then walked away. He wasn't very impressive.

Sad but true... in High School 3 of us had it memorized to 100 decimal places. I can't believe I was that much of a geek even back then.

International Pi Day is awesome. Pi to 800 decimals is EASY by the way [but I only remember 250~ after not reciting for about 2 years]. HAPPY PI DAY TO ALL!
