Looking through unanswered posts on Yahoo! Answers, while trying to find one that had compelling interest, I found this one:
Find the digit that appears immediately before the decimal point in: (8 + sq root(59))^(2013!)?
Was trying to figure this out the whole night. Please help!

Like the OP I have been scratching my head on this one. Can anybody help?
