The Pi digit search feature of this page is very interesting.

The digits:

314159 - occur somewhere 176,000 digits in.

My B-Day is around 1.1M digits in.

070476 - about 231,000.

What would happen if a few more digits were added to the search feature and a few more million digits added to the search space?

Would we rediscover Emily Dickinson?
