I found 3.1416 is fine for most of my calculations. Of course that is only 5 digits.

I think it's commendable that someone would take the time to do something to get herself in the record books..Duke what record of renown do you hold?

Oh yeah, I'm a girl. Didn't mean to sound as if girls are dumb, but people are always saying that boys are better at math than girls. I aced calculus, but memorizing pi? That's on a whole other level.=]

At least here is one kid worth the air she breathes. She isn't out raping toddlers, though if she did that, she'd probably receive accolades from the users of Topix. That is one reason why maybe I should leave Topix. Not that anyone would really miss me. I am conservative, not an atheist, and never abused any children nor support such persons in the least. To be welcome on Topix, you almost have to be a God-hating, liberal, pro-criminal, child-raping, illegal alien, who has a victim mentality. Or you must keep your true views to yourself to avoid being attacked. Forget that.

Plagiarism is rampant. I do not owe the little girl an apology. She may receive a notice to appear to answer for this 420 business.. I certainly hope not.

The story said she doesn't want to go into math or science- I thought a veterinarian was science?

I am sorry you feel that way. Of course, this being a public forum, we must take the bad with the good, and common sense doesn't always appear to be common. But, I have found that most of the regulars here are pretty even-keeled, and some of the others just spout off stupid crap to see if they can start something, which they usually do. Some go a little overboard, in which case I just don't say anything, like the kid that got killed riding on the shopping cart. Yes, it was stupid, but my god I can't even count all of the stupid things I did when I was younger, and if not by the grace of god...
Oh, well. You can't change people. I just ignore them for the most part..
Hope to still see you around.

Like post 4. I did not direct that response to Charles of Fla., male or female. It's just the way the server served and posted it.
