nitpick: It is not actually known whether the expansion of pi contains all finite sequences of digits.

It's actually a bit of a hole in mathematics: the only numbers we know are normal are ones we've specifically picked for that purpose. We don't have a good mechanism to tell whether a given irrational number is normal.
