Saw a recent post on how “digits of Pi add up to 666” and decided to investigate.

These days I’m finding Mathematica super-useful for stuff like this, so:

That does NOT add up.

But this does:

Okay, this is stretching things a bit. It certainly sounds fun to say “the first 144 digits of Pi add up to 666” and then go on to show how 144 is a cool number (which it is, so is 1440).

But it’s less fun to say “the first 144 digits of Pi except for the first one add up to 666″, which is the truth here.
