Illinois 5th grader memorizes 1,011 digits of Pi

GENEVA, Ill. -- If you can barely remember your own phone number, just listen to what an Illinois fifth grader did.

Wyatt Gross, a student at Mill Creek Elementary in Geneva, memorized 1,011 digits of pi. He recited the whole thing at school on Tuesday, breaking a school record.

March 14 is Pi Day, which most of us probably only remember from our math classes as 3.14.
