Math was One of My Senior "Likes"

A Japanese psychiatric counselor has unofficially broken the Guinness world record for reciting Pi to over 80,000 digits, using only a piece of paper, a writing untensil, and his memory.

Uhm, what!?!? I think this guy might want to consider attending one of his own sessions; he might have some psychological issues of his own to contend with...

I actually remember in school when we learned to calculate Pi. I remember understanding that I would never need to know this information again because modern calculators will be able to compute it for us. This is just insanely impressive, though.

I think I'm going to try and break the Guinness world record today for laziness. Well, "laziness". I'm actually going to be working on stuff for the site, so we'll see if I can get it done or not. That will dictate the record holder anyway...
