but there is one thing pi doesnt contain that is pi itself because that would make it repeat

The length of your life is not even close to enough time to get those results randomly. Try the entire population of the Earth for the entire length of humanity's existence...maybe.

The number of possibilities for ten separate digits to make one 10 digit number is 10^10 or 10,000,000,000. On average mashing my keyboard yields approximately 100 numbers in 10 seconds, which is 10 numbers per second. There are 86,400 seconds in a day and 31,536,000 seconds in a year. Average life expectancy is 75 here in the U.S. which gives me 2,365,200,000 seconds in a lifetime. At ten digits per second I could type 20,365,200,000 digits in a lifetime, which is more than double the possibilities. I understand that the chances of me getting each possible combination are extremely slim but hypothetically it could be done.

There are a **** load of mathematical proofs proving pi to be irrational.

It is the quadratic FORMULA. But X= b + or  the square root of ( b^24ac) all over 2a

this would also be true for every irrational number. so the same information would be found in the square root of 2.

And so is the entirety of Shakespeare's works...
And a version of Hamlet where Hamlet's called "Buttcrunch Deluxe" throughout the whole thing.

My favorite irrational number is 1 / infinity
It is basically 0.0000000........1
An infinite stretch of zeroes, ending in a one... And it does follow all the rules regarding irrational numbers
cannot be represented as a fraction with only real and rational numbers
non terminating
non repeating

You saying that it ends in a one indicates that it terminates. Since any terminating decimal is rational, it can't be irrational, and that is something very easy to prove. Additionally, infinity is not a number. In more advanced maths, you can create "points at infinity," but because infinity is not a number but you're acting like it is, you have to specifically definite its arithmetic. In any case I've ever seen, division by infinity has been defined to be 0. Additionally, the definition of a rational is "a number that can be represented as the quotient of two integers with a nonzero divisor." You do have beasts like transfinite numbers, which are infinite, but aren't "infinity" and when working with transfinite numbers, the arithmetic and axioms are much much different than your runofthemill calculus arithmetic and axioms.

if Pi is an infinite number with every combination of numbers possible, does that mean at some point after it has made every combination in existence, it could repeat? (they do say every combination)
