    that was unintelligible

    So me and my best friend was one time waiting for school to start, so we were kinda bored and my best friends was saying 50 digets of pie really fast. And so I had the idea to time him and see if he can break the record. So we went to the Internet to check out the current record, and the record was from this dude, who had 7:02. So he had some warm up times. And then, I finally timed him, he didn't get it the first try, but the second try: 6:79... HE DID IT!! But that's not all. He was so fast, that we thought he would break it again, and then: 6:27... It's was unreal! And I am sad no one took footage. But it happend, and that can't change.

    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.

    • Canada Dan Rollman

      Awesome. Keep the radical feats coming. Beating unicycle/Rubik's would be epic -- that's a landmark category.

  • Canada Dan Rollman

    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:)
