The billionth digit of Pi is the number 9.
Just in case you needed to know.

Ah, but is the next digit 5 or higher, so it should be rounded up? :think:

An old unsophisticated farmer sent his son to the university. When the son returned, the old man said, "Son, talk to me somethin in college."

The son said, "Dad, college is not a language, it is a way to study and improve your life."

The old man said, "Since I'm paying the bills and sendin you to college, I want you to say me somethin in college."

The son, thinking that he would have to humor the old man said, "Pi R Square".

The old man looked at him with disgust, and said, "No son, pie are round, cornbread are square."

I don't know, but zero does not show up until the 31st position.
