Nowhere near any record of any kind but pretty good for a boy who's always saying he doesn't have a good memory. Sean recites pi up to 31 decimal places.
I've never been able to make Sean memorise anything, not spelling, not poems, not multiplications; he always goes, "I can't...I don't have a good memory..." so who knew he'd remember a 32-digit number. I'm not sure when he started memorising this, I did hear him mumbling 3.142...blah blah blah for some time now from wherever he was reading his book, but didn't think very much of it.
And why 31 decimal places? Well, he showed me the page where he got the numbers from, Murderous Math's The Perfect Sausage.
And there it was, pi at 31 decimal places :)
Who knows how much more he would have remembered if the book had more digits? But this is at least one thing Sean has over his korkor, whom he is always saying is very clever...cos Brian, the brother with the good memory, can only remember pi up till 16 decimal places.
Go Sean, who says you don't have a good memory!
ps. When Sean heard himself on the video, he said to Brian, "You're right...I do have a whiny voice." LOL! At least no one can say he isn't self-aware.
pps. And yes, I know my boys need to get out of the house more often.
