Bonus Pi Day post

Many years ago, I received a sticker from a good friend on Pi Day. It was a commemorative design by the the Maryland Science Center with Pi digits. Upon closer scrutiny, I found two missing digits in the 8th line from the top between 6 and 8. I tried unsuccessfully to mark the spot with an asterisk. A second smudged asterisk at the bottom indicates the missing two digits, ‘79’. It is easy to imaging what had happened. The missing digits are the 99th and 100th digit of Pi and these digits were likely lost during a digital cut and paste process. The missing digits definitely make the sticker unique and therefore cooler. My friend reported the missing digits and later editions have been corrected.
