Pi to 20 digits

  1. When you want to recall pi, picture a large slice of pie. It’s sitting in the branches of a tree, and it’s cherry pie with red cherry filling. Because the pie is in a tree, and tree rhymes with three, you’ll know the first digit is three. The end of one of the branches of the tree looks like a hand pointing at something. Tree point – three decimal point.
  2. Floating in the air to the right of the tree, pointing back at it, is a large gun. It’s a machine gun, and it looks very threatening. Gun rhymes with one.
  3. The gun is suddenly swatted out of the sky by a large door, like a fly swat swatting a fly. Door rhymes with four.
  4. After swatting the gun away, the door opens and a nun walks out, dressed in the traditional black and white habit. Nun rhymes with one.
  5. The nun runs a few steps and takes a big dive through the air. Dive rhymes with five.
  6. Instead of diving into a swimming pool, the nun dives into an enormous glass of red wine. Wine makes you think of nine.
  7. The nun disappears beneath the surface of the wine, but the wine suddenly spits out a large shoe. Shoe reminds you of the number two.
  8. The shoe lands on the ground but some sticks start to chase after it. What number does sticks rhyme with? Six.
  9. As the sticks are running along, a large bee hive falls out of the sky and lands on them. Hive rhymes with five.
  10. The hive stands up on legs and jumps onto a single snow ski. Ski reminds you of the number three.
  11. The ski wants to escape from the hive and it takes a large dive. Dive rhymes with five.
  12. The diving ski crashes into the side of a large ice skate. Skate reminds you of eight.
  13. There’s a weird reaction because of the crash and a long green vine starts growing out of the skate and up into the sky. Vine rhymes with nine.
  14. The vine keeps growing and growing, all the way up to heaven, up through the clouds and starts to grow around the stereotypical pearly gates. Heaven reminds you of seven.
  15. The vine’s growing a little too fast and a sign suddenly appears telling the vine to stop. Sign rhymes with nine.
  16. Out of nowhere an enormous bee grabs the sign and flies away with it. When you imagine that bee you’ll think of the number three.
  17. The bee isn’t watching where it’s flying and crashes right into an enormous screw. Screw rhymes with two.
  18. After the sudden crash there’s a bit of road rage and the screw pulls out a large key and uses it to hit the bee out of the way. Key makes you think of the number three.
  19. The key falls from the hand of the screw and lands on a plate, smashing it into small pieces. Plate rhymes with eight.
  20. Luckily the plate has some glue and it glues itself back together, and then picks up a rowing oar to retaliate. Oar reminds you of four.
  21. The plate is a bit grumpy and throws the oar as hard as it can. The oar flies like a spear through the air and into a large pile of red bricks. Bricks rhymes with six.

And there you have it, you’ve just memorized pi to 20 decimals!
