Phenomenal. I know it to like the 7th place. 83,431 is just incredible.
Thanks! Scott B.

That's crazy. That also means I'm only 83,370 away from the record! Methinks that guy should just memorize decks of cards. He could do some wicked card tricks I'd bet.

If a magician has such persistence to deepen magic, we will have more fruitful result than 3.14159265358979. As a cardician, I wish to follow that persistence for my study of Card Magic.

Maybe Japanese has tendency of persistence.

Oh dear..all my calculations at school..Uni and at work were merely approximations
when using 22/7 as the value.

Doh.

Don't forget, June 22 is Pi Approximation Day (22/7)! This isn't to be confused, of course, with March 14, which is simply Pi Day (3/14).

June 22nd 22/7? This would be 22 July in the UK. But then 14 March would be 14/3. Then again, you did say it was an apporoximation.

Howard, if you wish to think that I made up both Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day, you probably shouldn't type those terms into Google, or else you'll be surprised.

I have indeed Scott and it is 22/7 which in most countries is 22nd "July" not June. Also Pi day is 3.14 not 3/14 (which is .214).I concur with Mr chutney on this one I'm afraid.

I Googled, Scott, and this page at least bears out what I was saying.

Oh, did I type June? Ooops. I did mean July.

Howard, I'm not sure where you and Dr. Chutney are from, but where I live, the dates are most often written with slashes inbetween the month, day and year.

I simply wrote both days so they would make sense. Yes, when writing Pi Approximation Day I put the day first, then the month, because that's makes it easier to understand where the name comes from - 22/7

I didn't use the same format for Pi Day, because for that to work out, the month has to come first - 3/14

Besides, if we're going to get technical about symbols and date formats, then Dr. Chutney's article is wrong, as well. It claims that Pi Day is 3-14. Well, 3-14=-11, and that has nothing to do with Pi!

I suppose we can look forward to 1st June 2018 as Phi day, although that is stretching date notation a lot!

But did he recite it with conviction? Was the audience moved?

How many new rhymes did he find? Any Haikus? Did he recite in rap with a beat box supplying the rhythm?

Did he do it dressed as a Doctor Seuss character? If so, which one. My guess would be as Sam.

Boy, that one got a belly-laugh from me! Har! Har!
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Patrick, this apparently got belly laughs from several people.

Both my initial post in this thread and Jonathan's were quoted on QwIsm's Xanga Site.
