Yeah ... I grok.

My 2nd ex used to take it pretty badly when I would talk to the kids about different sized infinities. [countable vs uncountable]  Of course, the phrases "countably infinite" and "uncountably infinite" *do* sound rather odd, don't they?

How about we start a thread on 'favorite (or really sick) math jokes'?

student - "Why can't I have a beer while I work on my Calculus homework?"

Prof - "Because it's not safe to drink and derive!"

Q - What's purple and commutes?

(scroll down for answer)

A - An Abelian Grape!

I've always appreciated the seemingly contradictory phrases like
"bounded but infinite".
