Man Counts Pi to 22,514 Digits

"The future is here. It's just not evenly distributed yet." - William Gibson 60 Minutes reports, Daniel Tammet, the "Brain Man" was able to recite, in a proper order, Pi to 22,514 numbers. It took him over five hours and he did it without a single mistake.

Share it!

I saw this on 60 Minutes on Sunday and was blown away. Apparently he has a visual representation in his mind for every single number. Also, if you meet him and talk with him, come back in a few hours and re-introduce yourself, he apparently won't remember you. Fascinating.
