When I found the page about joining the club of people who know the
first 100 digits of Pi, I decided to join this club. When I was 15 years,
on July 14, 1977 (Dutch), I already memorized the first 103 decimals of the
fraction of Pi, so, I knew it was not so hard to do.
I used a signature program to
get the digits, and printed the first 100.
The time needed to ride my bike home yesterday afternoon was enough
to memorize the first 80 decimals. This morning, while biking to my
office, I memorized the next 20 decimals, and rehearsed the first 80.
It's not as difficult to memorize these digits as I expected. I also get the feeling
that it becomes easier, the more you memorize. I memorize them per line,
that is 5 groups of 2 digits, except for the eight row, which I memorized
And now for the next 100 digits. I might be able to join the
1000-Club in a few months.
