I can get to 3.14

Keith was discussing someone from his high school the other day who apparently memorized Pi out to 800 digits. That seemed darn impressive to me, until David Letterman had a guy named Daniel Tammet on his show last night who had recited the number out to 22,514 places in a time of 5 hours, 9 minutes, 24 seconds. What's even more amazing is the fact that he's not even the world record holder: Hiroyuki Goto got to 42,195 digits on 18 Feb. 1995. Another impressive feat is Andreas Lietzow's - reciting Pi out to 1088 places while juggling 3 balls.

Yes, but can Goto SING it to 101 digits? It fits quite nicely with "Camptown Races".
