Google employee breaks the world record for calculating Pi

The value of the Pi has been calculated to a new world record length of 31 trillion digits, far beyond the previous record of 22 trillion. Google employee Emma Haruka Iwao from Japan found the new digits with the help of the company’s cloud computing service. The calculation required 170 TB of data and took 25 virtual machines 121 days to complete.

So racist they didnt let a black inner city youth figure it out... Pi is culturally biased and needs to be made easier; hip hop style... on a serious note, kudos to her.

Welcome to the Pi Calculation. Where the rules are made up, and the points don't mean anything.

The point isn't pi, guys. The point is advancing algorithms and hardware. Calculating pi stopped being about pi a long time ago, because we've already proven that it's transcendental.
