This massive pi calculation makes our heads hurt (and other stuff you missed)

Did you see the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch? We sure did. In fact, some of us even went as far as to watch it from within the freezing, flashing depths of Times Square. Why? Because.

Sadly, he didn't do it by hand, but we remain impressed by his efforts.
