PPS: Which of these is pi digits, which sky noise, which phone numbers (admittedly the local phone directory is a bit on the scanty side), and why does the pattern stand out so clearly at D and at E:

A: 821051141354735739523

B: 733615329964125325790

C: 698312217625358227195

D: 123409876135791113151

E: 113581321345589146235

(Ans: C — sky, A – pi, B – phone, last 2 digits each of line codes.)

Which of these is pi digits…

Correct answer: A thru E are pi digits


linky

A-E could also be telephone numbers (by taking the last few digits of several numbers)

E looks like it could be the famous Fibonacci sequence formed by adding the previous two numbers to get a new one:

1 + 1 = 3
1 + 3 = 5
..
55 + 89 = 146
etc.
