( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Remembering millions of digits of pi is trivial. Given time, I can cite a billion of them. Just don't ask me in which order they appear. Now for the useful constants I remember:
  1. 0 - first interesting number.
  2. 1 - last interesting number.
  3. 2 - number of eyes typical humans and penguins have.
  4. 3 - number of vertices of a triangle.
  5. 4 - number of players needed for a game of bridge.
  6. 5 - most symmetric multi-dotted face on a die.
  7. 6 - number of days in a week, not counting Wednesday.
  8. 6.5 - halfway 13.
  9. 7 - number of cardinal sins.
  10. 8 - only digit to divide the plane into three mutual exclusive subsets.
  11. 9 - number of known planets in the solar system.
  12. 10 - both interesting numbers!
  13. 11 - road number between home and work.
  14. 12 - number of steps of our staircases.
  15. 13 - twice 6.5.
  16. 14 - silver.
