As I prepare the grill for today's picnic Pi holiday family celebration, I will remind my kids about the sacrifices of Pi and it's constituting of a 'countable' infinity. When we get tired and feel like quitting, just think of Pi hanging in there and continuing to grind the sausage with another number. There is no "I" in "Pi"... errr... OK, maybe there is, but there is no "quit" in "Pi". May we conservatives adopt Pi's tenacity in the long fight ahead. Please join me in this non-synchronized moment of silence in deference and honor to that number that just refuses to give up. [Pause] Amen.
I wanted to play with the Pi-Search
cube pointed at, but I needed some numbers to work with. I converted "DaBlade" to "41212145" using the complex "A=1, B=2..." alpha-numeric code (that I believe was first used by the German U-Boats during WWII). I then plugged in this numeric equivalent of my cyber moniker into the Pi search engine. Here is my shocking discovery!
Searchstart: 41 The string 41212145 occurs at position 1,651,809 counting from the first digit after the decimal point. The 3. is not counted.All this time I thought it was just random chance that "1,651,809" happened to be my favorite number.
