I remember reading that a maths prof, (from Princeton?) memorized pi out to 15,000 digits. For some reason I thought that was cool and set a goal to memorize the first 1,000 digits. (Yeah, I am a lot of fun at a party.) I was hoping to have it done by today but have fallen short at 850. Probs by Memorial day.

maybe 22 trillion digits is just a bit of overkill. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory uses only 15 digits of pi for its highest-accuracy calculations for interplanetary navigation. Heck, Isaac Newton knew that many digits 350 years ago. “A value of π to 40 digits would be more than enough to compute the circumference of the Milky Way galaxy to an error less than the size of a proton,” a group of researchers wrote in a useful history of the number.

I'll bet Dr. Tigerchik could handle that with ease

Are you trying to compensate because your father named you Piscine and the kids tease you?

Maybe memorize one or two lines per week

As far as "fun at parties" goes ... even if you fuck up, who would even know?

It's being reported that e feels overlooked, ignored, neglected. Poor e, every year February 7 passes uneventfully while e waits hopefully for recognition and fame. And every year, e has to suffer in silence while the world celebrates pi day on March 14. To add to the indignity, pi even gets additional recognition on 22/7 in some places. How unfair is that?

e hates pi. Even though they're often seen together, the relationship is complex.

My high school pre-calc teacher memorized it to some ridiculous length. I can't recall how many digits but it was well over a thousand.

Yes, even though it's always a minus. They have a singular relationship; sometimes it seems like they're poles apart.

Yes, even though it's always a minus. They have a singular relationship; sometimes it seems like they're poles apart.

Their problems may seem infinite, but I bet the friction in their relationship could be transformed to zero with a judicious application of an Euler.
