In 2002 i downloaded a document that had the first 2 million numbers to pi and my computer crashed and my uncle had to delete it and he saw all my porn and my mom took the computer away from me and i had parental controls. i hate pi
You only need to know pi to 39 digits to accurately calculate the circumference of the observable universe within the width of one hydrogen atom. Any more digits are essentially useless. [small]Source: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpyrF_Ci2TQ[small] btw numberphile is an awesome channel.

There was a Pi memorization contest today at school for extra credit. My teacher said that as long as we memorize fifteen places we get the credit. Then she didn't even have us recite it, and just gave us the credit if we said we memorized twenty. I wasted two hours of my life.
In the 8th grade my Math teacher held various competitions on Pi day (solving basic algebra problems, random Pi trivia, etc) and gave points to teams of students based on their performance. The last part of the competition was to list off as many digits of Pi as you can (earning a single point for each digit). Since the most any student in the past ever managed to remember was 21, the teacher let each memorized digit count as 1 point, and made every other challenge in the competition worth ~20 points. I decided not to study for a whole week, and instead memorized as many digits of Pi as I could. My team was in dead last until the last challenge, with the leading team having 80 points. Our team's turn to list the numbers of Pi  the teacher had a list of the first 50 in front of her. I proceeded to list 251 digits of Pi (had to find an extended list for her online). I win my team the competition =D still haven't gotten the ice cream we were promised....
I got bored as **** after I finished a maths exam about half an hour early so i memorized pi to 9 decimal places which is all my calculator would go up to.... I just made it into the you're a dick category
<mfw I finished the exam in less than half the time
Numbers and math is not a language. Thats like saying that in Spanish binary is sometimes 2s and 3s rather than 0s and 1s. Bully for them but that doesn't make it correct.
Are you retarded? Numbers and math IS a language, ******* . The most commonly used number system is Arabic; the one you and I use on a daytoday basis. Various nations have little quirks when it comes to how they apply, represent, and utilize mathematics.
Why would you memorize pi? The whole point of having pi is so you don't have to write the number down every time you want the circumference of a circle or whatever.
