Party trick and math jokes

Your today’s “this talent will help me how in life?” segment spotlights this viral video of YouTube user Booksonmyhead who has the ability to recite pi to 100 digits while solving a Rubik’s cube puzzle and balancing 15 books on her head. I have a neat party trick I like to do where I too recite from memory pi, but since most people don’t know the number sequence, [SPOILER ALERT] I basically start making up numbers after I get past “3.14…” Try it. It works. The only downside is that afterwards, no one at the party will really talk to you.

Anyway, I think the talented girl in the video will probably appreciate this joke submitted to Neatorma:

There are 10 types of people: Those who understand binary and those who don’t.

There’s actually a Wikipedia page devoted to mathematical jokes, which you can always count on for some laughs.
