    Yes sir! I've already broken this one again, not sure what to do about that. I'm working on getting a unicycle for the cube while unicycling thing, and a few other weird ones. I also plan on beating some more Pi ones.

    Well done, Michael. Are Rubik's Cube records next?

    Thanks Michael for the correction. I just made the comment base on the original setter's value and a little research on Wikipedia. Looking into your research I guess this one can be considered as the Current Record since there's no particular statement in the criteria stating which value must use... :)

    Ok, so from Wolfram Alpha, the Mathematica people, we have: 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148086513282... The disputed digits are 38327950 - which Nikki says are supposed to be 3"0" 8 "2" 2795 "4". Unless Mathematica is wrong on this one (very unlikely!) the record should stand.

    I heard 3.141592653589793238462643 "3" 8 "3" 2795 "0" 288419716939937510 instead of 3.141592656589792308462643 "0" 8 "2" 2795 "4" 288419716939937510 nice try Meghann I'm sure you can beat this one..try to submit another one but of course make sure you use the correct value of Pi:)
