in my maths class there is this poster up with the first 80 digits of pi. i thought that it would be hard to memorise but i gave it a go (i was bored) and i did it in about half an hour with no real problems. so, now i have decided to memorise the first 10 000 digits . It will take me a while but i will try not to give up. the world record is 42 thousand something. anyways, wish me luck!

Ha, only 10,000! If youâ€™re going to try, why not go the whole way and beat the record. Or you could just try to memorize Pi completely.
Best of luck to you.

If you want to be a real geek then calculate the first 100,000 digits (you can use your computer). You will end memorizing the digits, I know because I did it.

hehe i havenâ€™t got much further when i heard that there was some formula with which it is possible to calculate any digit of pi. i canâ€™t find the formula anywhere thoughâ€¦ anyone have a site where it may be?

Blengine: well, technicaly, saying that it never ends would also apply to periodical number. To be more accurate, we have to say that Pi is an irrationnal number (it doesnâ€™t end, and the sequence of number isnâ€™t repeated over and over).
