this is really off topic i know, but I remember a few people in this
club(back before our archives got deleted by the switch to yahoo
groups) said they had memorized pi to quite a few decimal places.
Well i kinda wanna c how many i can memorize (and sorta have a bet
with some one). so how hard is it to learn 100 decimal places? Any
tips from anyone here who has done it?

I know to not just learn them as 100 separate numbers, but to make
them more like triggers on the cube :D (hey atleast i mentioned the
cube in this post)
but im sure some of you guys can give me a little more help.

i found a site that has pi to 50,000 decimal points! So im sure im
not going to run out of numbers to learn :D

I've caclulated PI into 3 million digits, and i even printed it out (40 some pages front and back with size 2 for the letters). Really, i think the world record for the most digits being memorized was by a chinese or japanese guy who memorized thousands (iv'e read it somewhere) and there is even a PI day! (3.14- 3rd month, 14th day, or March 14). i've calculated PI into 15 million once, but it froze up my computer every time i tried to print it out.

I think there is a infinite digits in pi. I memorized 75 digits in school for pi day, March 14 (3/14 3.14 haha get it?) last year. Its also coming up this year too. It was fun. I got a piece of pie and 3 dollars and 14 cents. lol Fun, fun times... well any way i memorized them in sets of 5. pretty easy, i memorized the 75 digits the day i went to school to do the contest.

Message 5 of 15 , Mar 3, 2003
Well, back in 8th grade (around 6 years ago now) in a single night I memorized 60 decimal places of pi for the heck of it. I can rattle these 60 off without thinking at all. If I type it into a keypad I can get as far as 80 sometimes. I have memorized up to 100 places but I forget it in a matter of days. But the first 60 are cemented into my head for some reason:
3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944/592306 the / comes after the 60th place and then I went as far as I could without expending any mental effort. I think the first couple numbers have a nice rythm first with a kind of "bouncing" 5's : 15926535 then "bouncing" 9's:8979 then 3's 323 and so on. Just find the natural rythm of the numbers. Maybe I should try memorizing some more.... Thanks a lot, that's all I need is another obsession (or rather a rekindled old obsession) to take away from memorizing my cube algorithms.
Might also be of interest to you that one day in 8th grade, sitting in my earth science class, I memorized the periodic table to the end of the lanthanide series. Same thing with them, i can ramble those off in my sleep if I feel like it, but I can't seem to get anything after the lanthanides to stick! Weird. Good luck to you!

You can get it to a few hundred million places if you look around.
There used to be a site with over 6 billion places but I don't know
if it still exists.

Hey, I just remembered this think on the net that helped me learn: http://wissrech.iam.uni-bonn.de/people/arndt/pitrainer/pitrainer_form.html

using this for about 5 minutes and I can now do fully 100 digits (again). It should be noted that in my first reply to this post, my 66th digit was wrong, I typed a 6 and it should be 7. At any rate, I'll have forgotten the last 40 digits by morning most likely, but still it's nice to know that they're there somewhere in my head.

Good luck!
