Japanese Man Sets Record in Pi Recitation

A Japanese psychiatric counselor has recited pi to 83,431 decimal places from memory, breaking his own personal best of 54,000 digits and setting an unofficial world record, a media report said Saturday.

I mean, why does pi get all the glory? Yes, perfect circles (which don’t actually exist) are neat mathematical constructs, but that doesn’t mean pi is any cooler than other irrational numbers, like e.

When’s somebody going to show e some love?
