Response for Previous Comment

Someone said that it was rude of me to not include the particular digits of Pi which I have memorized; thus proving my claim. I will include them now, whilst pointing out that I don't believe it to prove anything since I could just be sitting here copying from a book. :-P :) (which is not the case, by the way) Anyway, here you go:
Pi= 3.14159265358979323846... that both rounds and truncates to 6 on the last place shown
e = 2.71828182845904523536... that also both rounds and truncates to 6 at the last place shown
As a bonus, I'm including Phi to 20 decimal places. :)
Phi=1.61803398874989484820... (a.k.a the golden ratio, yet another important number in nature)

Isn't it interesting that some of the worlds most important numbers are irrational?! Being irrational implies that their decimal places go off to infinity, so far as we know. Of course, we have a great deal of confidence that they do indeed have infinitely many decimal places simply because mathematicians have calculated these numbers to multiple billions of decimal places, with no end in site. This having been said, doesn't it beg the question, why? Why would something so pivotal to all that we do in mathematics, science, and engineering be so unobtainable? Why is it so far out of our grasp? Well, I'm already convinced of the answer to that question. Perhaps you should derive your own answer. I must run for now. Until next time...
