The "Feynman Point" is a series of six nines in pi. It starts at the 762nd decimal place.

π = 3.1415926 ... 1134999999837 ...

The series is named after Richard Feynman for claiming in a lecture that he wanted to memorize pi up to the 762nd digit so that he could end his recitation with "nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, and so on." This would give the false impression that pi is rational, since infinitely repeating nines indicate a terminating decimal (see "Wikipedia article '0.999...'" in related links). Wiki User

The square root of pi is a finite number. However, it is an irrational number. That implies that if you try to write it out as a decimal number, it will stretch out to an infinite number of decimal places to the right of the decimal point.
