I’ve seen them bake cupcakes with single numerals on them so they could line them up and take Pi out to 500 decimal places. And that’s just to feed the all-night group stringing together numbered beads for a necklace taking Pi out to 5,000 decimal places. I actually saw a guy in the wee hours point out that they missed a bead mid-way through, and the group took half the beads off to correct the mistake and finish the job right. Hey, it’s MIT. Go figure.
