Breaking news from London --
A 27 year old French dude has broken a "human calculator" record by calculating the 13th root of a 200 digit number.
Just let that sink in.
The 13th root!!
Personally, I'm not sure I would be able to calculate the 13th root of any number even if I had a calculator. Unless the number was 10 to the 13th power, then I might be able to beat someone from France.
According to the article from Yahoo, "Like an athlete, he trains his brain daily for the far harder task of finding the 13th root of 200-digit numbers."
Is anybody else out there fearing world domination if this guy were ever to team up with hotdog eating champion Kobayashi???
