Don't feel bad boins, that is certainly in contention for the most useless skill ever. This link claims in fact that knowing 41 digits of pi is enough to calculate a circle that is the circumference of the known universe. So 40 is probably overkill for any real world application. ;)

Certainly true. XD

Granted, most of the skills these girls show off are wholly useless as anything but parlor tricks. XD

either chinami has too much time on her hands memorizing pi or she was forced to memorize it. :^)

It's honestly not remarkably hard. I memorized the amount I know one night sophomore year of high school when I liked a guy that was into that kind of thing. It's just stuck in there since, but especially if you're looking to know something to show off (as all good idols should be), it's a generally impressive thing that appeals to the wota nerds, y'know?

Earlobe trick girl definitely trumps the hell out of this, though. XD

The promotion blitz continues: they will be on the July 4 episode of "HEY!HEY!HEY!".

Is it just me, or is this the most promotion that any H!P group has done in years?

My friend knows more digits of pi than Chinami XD. So it's not that hard to memorise them.

Eh. "It's not that hard to memorize them" surely that's a very individual question? Some people, your friend included, have it easy to remember more and some can barely remember the first two.

i was taught to only know the first few numbers of pi and rest is not important. there is a reason why we have calculators. no need to struggle.

Japanese are overachievers in math.

Asian's in general. :lol:

I only know the first two. But I'll never use it anyway as I do not plan to be anything related to math so why bother. :P

Yeah, it's definitely just a parlor trick. No worse than juggling or memorizing the names of all the US presidents in order or being able to multiply two digit numbers in your head, though. All just stuff to keep our minds active and to impress others. :flowers:

1st week on Oricon
weekly #11
total 18526

-- *6 12 *7 11 15 14  *11 *18,526 2011/06/08(水) Berryz工房「愛の弾丸」
-- *6 *7 *7 *7 *9 *1  **7 *22,428 2011/03/02(水) Berryz工房「ヒロインになろうか!」

2011/05/25(水) ℃-ute「桃色スパークリング」

19 34 29 34 30 *8 24  *17 **4,936 *23,108

just like C-ute, Berryz fell from their norm consistency of 22~23k down to 18k in the first week. C-ute rebounded in their second week.

disappointing they didnt make the top 10. they could have beaten 7 through 10 if AKB didnt hog the spotlight all week.

*8 *21,352 RESTART JAPAN with

I've only memorized pi as far as 3.14159, but I can recite the greatest name in German baroque music. :lol:
