Marc Umile has set a new record for memorizing the most digits of pi.
That is pi, the 3.1415926535 figure… except that Umile knew a total of 12,887 digits. Writing out the figure took him 3 hours and 40 minutes. And apparently his somewhat odd hobby didn't even hurt his marriage. (Yes, he's married).
"I was really proud of him that he did it," said his wife, Maryann in the Philadelphia Daily News. "I can't remember a phone number."
