I Did Not Marry A Geek

This past weekend over dinner, I was explaining to my wife the theory about how if PI represents an infinite, non-repeating string of digits, and if all letters of the alphabet can be encoded as digits, then it is mathematically provable that the complete works of shakespeare can be found in the digits of PI.  "So you've got the first digits, 3.141592653..."

"What was that?" she asked.

"PI?" I answered.

"You know more than 3.1415?"

"Yes?"

"Why?"

"Because it's PI???"

"Oh.  Ok.  Continue."

She would have loved the guys in college that memorized a thousand digits or more.
