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....
