That video was weird. On the subject of pi, you can youtube and find videos of people who have memorized like 6002000 digits of pi.

I love how fast Steve runs in relation to the other kids. 

Nothing says 'legit' like cultists in orange robes and traffic cone hats. 

I know 97 digits.

I know pi to infinite accuracy so suck on that.

4/1  4/3 + 4/5  4/7 + 4/9  4/11 + etc. for however long you like. ;V 

I double like your post, Xei, because in my time zone you posted at 3:14.

That's not a Taylor series. Just a standard convergent series. A Taylor series will be a power series.

Well if you think about it, there must be a series for pi of some form or other, otherwise how would it ever be calculated? A decimal is a kind of series after all. 

sweetness , I'm not a major math geek but I love this stuff. The formulas for calculating stuff

Yeah I know just what you mean, it's pretty awesome when you realise that all of those functions you've been using are just 'infinite polynomials'. It's kind of a watershed moment actually; if you like that kind of stuff then to be honest you'd probably like the stuff that's covered from degree level onwards: there's a dramatic shift in flavour from the basic application stuff you do at school (application of algebra, calculus, etc; essentially just 'doing questions' with the tools you've learned), to much more abstract concepts and the study of objects in their own right, such as Taylor series.

Ah okay, cool beans. At school it's normally just written tan^1. 

yeah I've seen it written all different ways. arctan, tan^1, inverse tangent, atan.
