A sequence of six 9's (known as the Feynman Point) begins immediately after the 761st decimal place of pi. Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman expressed a wish to memorize the digits of pi as far as that point so that when reciting them, he would be able to end with "... nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, and so on."
