Instructables
Those who fear rows and rows of numbers, I recommend you to leave. Those who wonder what pi is so fascinating about, I recommend you to join me on this epic journey through pi.

EDIT: After having left this to rot for a few years, I have decided to correct some glaring typos. :D

Step 1: Grab your slice of pi (and please don't eat it 'till we're done)

Now to get some pi to appreciate. There are a lot of websites offering up to 2 million digits of pi. Don't worry, as we are not going that deep. We are stopping at the 100th digit or so.

Here is a website you can go to get pi :

Here is a site to search pi digits :

Here are the 1st hundred decimal digits:

3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679

apparently of which (some) I have memorized. In the recent years after not actively revising I have forgotten some off the far end.

Step 2: Getting started...

Here are the first 20 digits. Don't they look pretty?

3.14159265358979323846

I got a little too carried away and had to remove an extra 8 digits.

Step 4: Getting hungry for more?

the next 20:

50288419716939937510

I decided to show more at one go because there are some patterns spread out here.

Step 6: You are quite done...

Picture of You are quite done...
The last 30 :

062862089986280348253421170679

Whoa! What a big bite!

Step 7: Reflections

What were those for? For fun. Don't take them too seriously. Enjoy life. Takeaway a pi-zza (haha). Sit and eat. Forget all these. You will find it difficult at first.

Then come back to this instructable and repeat. Hopefully this has made your day.

Returning a few years later to look at your own Instructable is always fun :D
