Well done.
 
2006-03-16 12:45:33 PM  
that's going to be a useful talent as he counts change for customers at the family-biz you know -the 7-eleven...

what i really mean is that's how many rooms he's going to rent out at the family-biz. you know - the Super 8....

i'm sorry, what i'm really, really trying to say is that's how many other employees he'll be working with when he visits the summer back home at his uncle's-biz. you know - a Microsoft phone support center...

/hope he's going to be a cool-boss for my slacker-a$$

If he really wanted to line up the girls, he'd learn to trace the numbers with his tongue faster than he can recite them.
 
2006-03-16 02:35:14 PM  
Coincidentally, that's the number of times he won't get laid too.

Maybe he's the star in this:

no HTML so you can do with it what you want.

so he can memorize...now let's see him problem solve
 
2006-03-16 02:37:49 PM  
After the 20th digit, couldn't you just stop memorizing and start spouting out random numbers? It's not like anyone would check!
 
2006-03-16 02:38:21 PM  
Isn't that why we have computers so we don't have to know Pi to the 9000th place? I had way to many other things to do with my life then rember Pi.
 
2006-03-16 02:38:23 PM  
I accept the premise his fighting off chicks only if said chicks are trying to beat his @ss for doing something so pointless.

First one thousand digits.
 
2006-03-16 02:38:40 PM  
why does it say, 'send me alerts about: xbox?' it was only mentioned because he was offered one by his family. weirdos.
 
2006-03-16 02:38:44 PM  
Great headline.

/No...damnit to hell
 
2006-03-16 02:39:42 PM  
Yeah, I was gonna say, the only chicks he's fighting off are... well... let's be serious, he's not fighting off any chicks.
 
2006-03-16 02:39:44 PM  
sweetbaboo

That's beyond memorization. I'm thinking he's borderline autistic or whatever.

Impressive. Totally pointless of course, but hell it's better than a lot of the shiat I've accomplished.

/I used to know it to 25 digits or so
//now I just use "3"

Shadowspawn:

That's Pie Pi Recitation. It's in another division.

That's nice. I have date tonight.

/I win.
 
2006-03-16 02:40:44 PM  
In high school, there was a student who (while not fixing the computer lab's server) could recite several hundred digits of pi.

Unfortunately, I think he got into drugs and drinking after high school. I guess his celebrity wore off.
 
2006-03-16 02:41:42 PM  
 
2006-03-16 02:41:43 PM  
I think the numbers of Pi would work just as well as letters of the alphabet when you're dining at the Y.
 
2006-03-16 02:41:59 PM  
Recites 8,784 digits of pi, will be waiting at least 30 more years before he can recite "Was it good for you?"
 
2006-03-16 02:42:32 PM  
Yes, but can he build a rhombicosidodecahedran?

Shenanigans! You clearly started making them up by the 33rd digit!

^^^sorry, had to fix that,

/i get annoyed easly
 
2006-03-16 02:43:34 PM  
It would suck if the verifiers found out he screwed up the 50th or so digit.
 
2006-03-16 02:44:16 PM  
damn, that's sexy.

i'd hit it.
 
2006-03-16 02:44:23 PM  
dammit, I was going to submit this with a better? headline.

something about his mom renovating the basement....

this one works too.

Hey, you got a Pi. That's good, right?
 
2006-03-16 02:45:21 PM  
"In fact I can recite to 40000 places. The last digit is one."

2006-03-16 02:46:35 PM  
Hair pie? Sank you!
 
2006-03-16 02:46:40 PM  
"Hey man, what are you doing?"
"Well I got a list of Pi digits. I'm memorizing them."
"Oh... why?"
"So I can recite them from memory."
"Uh huh... so myself and the other guys were gonna go chase skirt at the bar. Do you want to -- nevermind."
"What?"
"No I... forgot what I was going to say. That's all. See you later."
 
2006-03-16 02:47:12 PM  
When come back, bring pi.

wankers.
 
2006-03-16 02:47:30 PM  
I used to know 100 digits of e. I don't remember fighting off any chicks, though....
 
2006-03-16 02:48:08 PM  
reverendfitty

he said "digits" - a period isn't a digit so it didn't really matter whether or not he put it in
 
2006-03-16 02:48:17 PM  
Back in high school there was a poster of pi next to my desk in math class. Got bored enough to learn about 550 digits that year. I can probably still do about 225 now.

2006-03-16 02:49:22 PM  
Sigh... useless hack.
 
2006-03-16 02:49:38 PM  
i dont think a point counts as a digit

/anyone seen the rumored topless melissa photos yet?
 
2006-03-16 02:50:07 PM  
I'm just wondering how many of you dont have girlfriends and also have no idea what pi is after 3.14.

Reciting 8,784 digits of pi is awesome. Weird, but awesome.

"Coincidentally, that's the number of times he won't get laid too."</i?

That statement makes no sense. You cant determine how many times something doesnt happen unless you compare it so something else.

OK, my rant is over.
 
2006-03-16 02:50:38 PM  
I once ate some pie. It was good.
 
2006-03-16 02:50:40 PM  
I saw this, he cheated. There was a circle drawn on the palm of his hand.
 
2006-03-16 02:51:17 PM  
When you saw the headline, was there ANY doubt in your mind the kind was Indian? Anyone here seen Spellbound?
 
2006-03-16 02:51:47 PM  
Absolutely SUBLIME headline, submitter.

/still chuckling
