How many decimals of Pi do you people remember by heart. I started learning them not so long ago and so far i got:
3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41971 69399 37510 58209 74944 59230 78164 06286 20899 86280 34825 34211 70679 82148 08651 32823 06647 09384 46095 50582 23172 53594 08128 which is exactly 150 (without cheating). I try to learn 510 more each day.

2 decimals. 3.14. Not that memorizing pie out to all those decimal places is pointless, but...well, yeah, it's pointless.

I gotta admit, it's probably one of the less useful things i ever did in my life, but heh, i had to come up with something to do in nonphysics or math classes...

How many decimals of Pi do you remember?
Oh my god! why? if you ever need to use pie why dont you just use the pie button on your calculator, far simplar.

Dude, andy, pi buttons on calculators don't go to 150 digits...

I'm with zk4586 on this one. I think once I may have known it to five digits but that was long ago.

I just find that learning pi is a good way to maintain your memory active, plus it's a really good time waster. I found out that now i can remember series of numbers in a lot less time. I just use birthdates, repeating numbers, and my latest, pattern you do with your fingers when you type the keys on the numpad.

Just so you know, i practice shooting for hand eye coordination. Sniping (although it has a bad reputation), is the best exercise i know to learn how to totally control how your muscles react and is quite good for coordination of bodyeye coordination. I've been introduced to that sport by a friend in the army, and i just love it.

What's Pi? [:)] I usually just round up at 3.142.

If caculators don't go up to 150 digits then you can't use 150 digits of PI when using a caculator and you would need a caculator to work out the result of any sum involving pi at 150 digits

Artman: True [:)] it may seem weird when you read those statements one after the other. If only considering those two statements, i would in fact seem like a complete maniac... Which i can reassure you i am not: i use an air rifle, which means that i have no clue about how to handle a rifle with recoil and i am thus completely harmless. lol, i'll be more careful next time and try to express myself clearer so i don't look like a psycho.
Alex00: I never use that many decimal places for calculations, if you know about significant figures then you know it would be completely useless anyways. It's just for the fun of it. [:D]

So very very sad, how can you have fun in a maths lesson the only reason its like at my college is because the maths teacher is very sexy and all the blokes want to give her one but thats a different topic all together, the only good thing about maths is its very useful whilst studying physics, at least alex00 agress with me.
