Question RE: Cool number stuff

Pi is a schneaky beast, that's for sure.

Also how cool is it that if you *don't* square em and add em up, like this:
1 / 1 + 1 / 2 + ... + 1/n + ...

then it never converges to a number - just keeps on getting bigger and bigger and bigger, even though you're adding tinier and tinier amounts to it. If you keep doing that with that series (the harmonic series I think Tongue Can't remember name and lazy to google) you will eventually reach 100, 100 000 , 100 000 000 and in fact, any number. Might take you a while though Tongue
