Sounds like another individual with WAY too much time on their hands. I'm sure there is something better to do with life than memorizing Pi....just my 2 pennies.

3.1416's about it for me...what was the rest?
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.

Do the digits of pi satisfy any criteria for randomness? If so, where is the first sequence of one hundred zeros? all the coins I've dropped here

Yes, Jonathan. Somewhere in Pi, if you search long enough, you can reasonably expect to find one hundred zeros in a row.

Pi has only been calculated to one trillion digits so far, so the string of one hundred zeros hasn't shown up yet (as far as I can tell).

If you do want to have fun searching for strings of numbers in Pi, try the Pi-Search Page.

Actually, there are two different types of irrational numbers. Normal and...something else. (the name slips my mind) Some irrational numbers are normal, meaning they will eventually have every possible number sequence in them. (makes sense since they are infinite in length!) However, not all irrational numbers are like this. Some never repeat but will NOT have every possible number combination (or number). To this day it is not known if Pi is normal or not. (someone correct me if Im wrong on this) So technically we cannot say if somewhere along the lines of pi there will be 100 zeros. Smile

Fascinating. 01234567 can be found in sequence, as can 12345678, but nothing longer. Then again it is only the first 200,000,000 digits!
We're having a laugh!
