Memorizing pi ain't no piece of PIe. You need to pray and have PIety, because it's an ePIc job.

Ever write a program to solve those type with M?

No, I can hardly even represent the data

Then how do you solve them?

### Re: It's someone's birthday!

I think you do not understand what uncomputability is.

I also suspect there are many people who can represent the problem tactfully and get a computer to solve it

### Re: It's someone's birthday!

I was not talking about the kaboobly doo logicians viewpoint of computability.

I was talking about the fact that when I can not compute it, I can not understand it.
