**Abstract:** It is well known that most square roots are irrational: their decimal expansions are nonrepeating and nonterminating. Thus, intuition would have us suspect that each of the ten digits would be equally likely to appear in the r-th place d_{r} beyond the decimal point in a given √x, x>0. That such is not the case is the point of this note.
