When I was a senior in high school, there was a contest to memorize the value of pi. I started to memorize the number the night before, and I wrote down over two hundred digits after the decimal point during the contest. This earned me first prize (a pie) and an illustrated article about my exploits/feats in the 2016 yearbook.
Which is a better fit here? Why?
