    thousandth of a second? that doesn't make sense.....

    pi = 3.1415926535897932384626433832795 that's what my calculator in Windows says anyway.

    3.142, to give it "to the thousandth." However, use at least 3.14159

    What kind of pie? Some flavours are tastier than others, and as such, have a higher value. Of course, what tastes better is subjective...

    1,000,000 decimals, eh? OK, now prove it's accurate ;-)

    it's actually not that difficult to prove that it's accurate.

    4-4/3+4/5-4/7+4/9... is one way to do it, but there are better ways. If you're interested in it, I direct you to Google for more information than you're likely to ever want.
    Away.
