I don't really care about the numbers, I just scroll down and think about the power of computers these days! When I first saw this, I was amazed!

A trick for those who use mnemonics or things to remember numbers:

Andrew Jackson was the 7th president, elected in 1828 to two terms.

Then tack on the 45-90-45 right triangle.

The first 15 digits are so incredibly easy to remember. You don't need to remember much.

Mnemonics are best left for other things.

These beginning blocks are very easy. First goal is 50 digits, wish me luck! (I'm always had a horrible memory)

Well, that would be useful, but the human brain is always capable of processing and holding large pieces and strings of information with the use of popular mnemonics or phrases.
