Happy Pi Day

By March 14, 2007General

Oh, and happy Pi Day. Yes, that’s right — it’s 3.14, Pi Day. For those of you who have never witnessed a “Pi Contest” it’s quite something to behold, watching and listening as people scream out digits of Pi in a blizzard of numbers. As you know, Pi is a non-repeating, never-ending number. The world record holder for reciting digits of Pi — according to this story — is actually Chao Lu, a Chinese chemistry student, who rattled off 67,890 digits of Pi over 24 hours in 2005. Crikey — we can’t remember our PIN number most days.

Here’s a link to a site that lists a million digits of Pi. What the heck, it’s hump day, take a few hours and see how many you can memorize.

Happy Pi Day, all.
