End of year genius party

Now I want you to think of a number.

Can it be any number?

Any number.


Okay, have you fixed it in your mind's eye? Concentrate.

I have.

Does it end in six?

Why, yes: yes it does!

Is it PI to 100,000 places?

Damn you're good.

Not to worry, you've been a great sport – even if your capacity for eidetic recall is somewhat disappointing. Derek, my glamorous assistant professor will escort you back to your seat.

[Now get this bozo off the stage and find me a real challenge. Nobel Prize? Seriously? What? Are they handing them out like “nice try” candy at a spelling bee contest for the dyslexic?]
