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:
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?
I got a little too carried away and had to remove an extra 8 digits.
Step 3: Warmed Up?
I actually forgot a little something :
pi digits 15 to 25
32384626433 (look at the 1st picture)
Ok, lets carry on...
pi digits 21 to 30
2643383279 (2nd pic)
Step 4: Getting Hungry for More?

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
