An alcohol-induced discussion between a friend and myself last night -
Friend - The concept of Infinity encompasses all that has ever existed and ever will exist.
Me - You have a cylinder, diameter x and length infinity. Therefore it has infinite volume. Next to it is another cylinder, diameter 2x and length infinity. Therefore it also has infinite volume. The second cylinder is certainly the bigger of the two, but they are both infinite in volume, are totally separate bodies and both exist within a larger space which is also infinite. Therefore the concept of infinity as a mathematical value is relative.
Friend - Pass the Coors.
Which of us is talking the bigger load of crap?
"Go to Blue Alert!"
"Is that really necessary Sir? It will mean changing the bulb..."
