Shock

I remember we found a book with containing Pi to 200 decimal places in junior high school. Over about three lunch times I could recall it to around 100 decimal places.

Strangely, I still know it to about 40 or 50 decimal places now, some 20 years later, but I forget my cash card PIN all the time. :?

The engineering faculty at the University of Ottawa was holding such an event. I think the winner recited 5000 decimals (give or take). I only know 4 of them... :S

Off the top of my head (honest)

3.14159265359

But really, what's wrong with 3.141? THat's what the exams tell you to use if you don't have a calculator Tongue

Really?

I've always been told to use 3.1416 but in high school seeing as how we were too young to remember two extra digits we only used 3.14.

I don't remember the name of the book but did anyone read one about a man who "figures out pi"? I've been reading to read it... that and "The Life of Pi" which doesn't have much to do with the number but the character's name is "Piscine" which is french for "pool" but everyone ends up calling him "Pissing" hence the name change to pi hehehe Laughing out loud
