Wanna Bet . . .

. . . this guy can't even remember to take out the garbage?

Akira Haraguchi, a Japanese clinical psychologist, set a new world's record by reciting the value of π to a mere 100,000 places. He also held the previous world record of 83,431 places (pieces?) of π.

Doesn't this seem a little too obsessive-compulsive for comfort coming from a psychologist? I can imagine him grilling his couch-bound clients not just on their mothers and fathers, but all their ancestors all the way back to the Book of Genesis, or whatever the Shinto parallel is.

Now I know how much my readership likes a challenge, so why don't you guys take a whack at it too?

Nanuk..you need to put a filter on this blog...someone named "anonymous" is trying to sell you on everything from car insurance to gay porn.
Anyhoo..I really like your blog...looks like you are farther North than anyone else I've visited in cyberspace....and as for buddy reciting the value of Pi to 100,000 places, I say..who the fudge has time for that? You'd think a clinical psychologist would have more pressing concerns to deal with in his day to day life.
