Man Recites First 4,000 Digits Of Pi, But Doesn't Get Record

"Japanese psychiatric counselor"...hmm...

Man Recites First 4,000 Digits Of Pi, But Doesn't Get Record

SYDNEY, Australia -- For Chris Lyons, reciting a 4,400 digit number was as easy as Pi.

Lyons, 36, recited the first 4,400 digits of Pi -- a mathematical value that has an infinite number of decimal places -- without a single error at the 2006 Mindsports Australia Festival, organizer David Cordover said Tuesday.

Cordover said Lyons, a memory coach from Melbourne, took 2 1/2 hours to complete the feat.

Lyons said he spent just one week memorizing the digits before reciting them for judges at the festival Monday.

"With the right techniques and a bit of practice you can remember whatever you want," he said.

His accomplishment is far from a record.

In July, a Japanese psychiatric counselor recited Pi to 83,431 decimal places from memory, breaking his own personal best of 54,000 digits and setting an unofficial world record, according to media reports.

It would take some work getting 4400 slices out of a pi.
