There exists a recent post on the subject of an infinite amount of monkeys doing a lot of typing. You know the premise. I was going to post this there, but figured it might deserve to be a new thread altogether.

There's this number- Pi: 3.14159... and off it goes. It is irrational, meaning that it's digits are infinite, and that they never repeat in a cyclical fashion.

Studies have shown that Pi may also be "normal", meaning that it's digits are random in a certain statistical sense.

Lots of people study Pi. It's implications are more staggering than the average person would imagine. There is recent evidence suggesting that pi might contain just as many of anyonenumber combination as there areany othernumber combination. Does that not imply that Pi haseverynumber combination, includingthis posthidden somewhere within it's digits? Including Shakespeare?

Mind you: this is all within the realm of experimental mathematics.

But! (chuckle) If pi hadeverynumber combination, wouldn't one of those numbers contain infinite amount of zeros, making pi a rational number?

heh.
