    How was "memorizing pi" not a poll choice?

    I'm at I think 227 (I'll count it for sure next week), but I don't really want to memorize more.

    My cousin did it before. Believe he has a late 80's Supra, so I'm sure he had a little fun on it.

    I wish there was a separate forum for all the Poser of the Year threads.

    Also, I just noticed that, somehow, BUtogether (a new poster for BU who posted my name and a certain level donor right off the bat, the post of which has been deleted along with a bunch of other crap) now is in the positive for rep. I turned him red right off the bat. And given my rep stature, I'm not sure who turned him green. And I'm mad, because I have to spread rep around before I can turn him red again. Unless any of you want to give it a try. I'd be much obliged. Regardless, I'm hoping many of you will be seeing rep from me till I'm able to do it myself.

    In response to the end of the last thread. I think I'll place my bets on DX. And Dillos BMW is a friggen boat sedan, not exactly a car with performance suspension.
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    Memorizing pi might be the most annoying/boring party trick out there.

    I have seven digits of pi memorized - eight, if you include the 3. If you need to be more exact than that, you're not looking for that value from me.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Six, and there's a button on my calculator for more should I need more.

    If I wired you a few grand could you swing by the Flyin' Miata garage and buy me a bunch of stuff? I'll take a Stage II turbo kit, some new Brembos, a sports exhaust, a set of Hoosiers, a roll bar, and a stub antenna.

    It's an active system that actually does quite a bit. When you toss it in sport mode it has almost no sway at all. It almost feels like the car is leaning into the curve.

    With the AWD, the system will vector the torque to the wheels that need it the most. It will also selectively and actively apply the brakes on individual wheels when necessary on hard corners.

    Even little things you don't notice like when you jam hard on the brakes, the front suspension stiffens up so that your entire car doesn't diver forward. The same is true when you jam on the gas, does fall backwards.
