Meh, I still prefer the old version.

But yes, impressive. If only someone could write a million more words for this poem.

Hey, there's another way to memorize the first like, 10 decimal places. First, memorize this:

May I have a large container of orange juice now please?

Then just count the number of letters in each word and put a decimal point after 3.

3.141926536

I just like to leave it like pi.

But π, more accurately has 5 as its 10th decimal place.

I don't necessarily like the poems that help to remember π, since it is actually just as easy to memorise it from memory...

simron left out the 4th digit in the decimal portion of pi, a 5, in post #27, but it's just a typo.

Now I only know pi to 150 places. I recorded some of it into my mp3 player so it plays it into my head once in a while

when I'm listening to other *.wav files I put in the recorded subdirectory of the Zen Nano 1GB. Nice toy!

If you can't get to the million digits, try index314.html at the end.

I'm at a steady 250-ish... haven't found the time to memorise anymore. At one point I wanted to go for the world record, but it seems a little pointless now, as I'd have to spend several years of my life doing it - which I would prefer not to do.

Good thing to have in your back pocket, though. I've found that it has helped me memorise other things, such as essays - you can hone your technique with pi.

How I remember pi is dividing it into little patterns or groups. For example:

3.

1415

926

535

8979

323

84

626...

etc.

I am memorizing some more of pi, this time, without a sequence.

So I know each digit by what digit it is numbered into pi.

So if you say "what is the 126th digit of pi?", I would say "4".

It's an interesting way to do it. I use the 100 people I have

numbered to associate clothing and places with them and make

scenarios for each digit. Like a purple headset might mean the

number 7, and the person might be person #55, so that might

mean to me that the 156 decimal place is 7. I numbered the

101st decimal place a 00, so I have an offset value.

Today I was reading pi off a sheet aloud and when I got to about

6 or 7 thousand digits, I found "9898989"! Nice find! It is 7 digits

long, which beats the Feynman point (999999) by one digit.

Hi TESTU;

I am not following you. .999999... is an integer, π is transcendental.

Let's make this Clearer!...

Pi = Has a Base Number of 3 Followed by Infinite .(Random Numbers)

Infinite/Recurring 0.999... Has a Base Number of 0 Followed by Infinite .(9's)

So the Differences are the Base Numbers & the Following Infinite Numbers!
