    The value of pi is infinite.
    The first dozen places or so are:3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939 93751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421 170679

    Oooh no, not at all. The value of pi is a little over 3.14, which is not even close to infinity. What you mean is that pi is a non-terminating decimal.

    In plain English, this means that you will never finish writing down the exact value of pi. It has an infinite number of digits, and no matter how many you write, you will always have an infinite number of digits left to write.

    As for your other question, Anyone,anytime,anywhere, there is a reason it's hard to read the image. It's called a CAPTCHA image, and it's there to stop spambots from posting. Some spambots are able to identify letters in pictures, so the letters have to be distorted to make them difficult for spambots. Unfortunately, that makes them difficult for humans, too.

    My bad. This is why I don't moderate on any mathematics boards.
