The title reminded me of something. If you enjoy math and want to shit bricks hear this. First of all we all know that there is at least two infinities, one being negative and one being positive. Now, there are infinite amount of integers. There are also infinite amount of real numbers. However, it is true that there are much more real numbers than there are integers. The infinity used to describe the quantity of real numbers is obviously larger than the infinity used to describe integers.

Not if you use an extended complex plane, then they are equal. Point at infinity ftw!
But an extended complex plane is a sphere (or can be taken to be one).

(And yes, I have shamelessly stolen the sphere/plane comparison from the illustration of complex infinity. In effect, a complex plane curves back towards a single infinity point, but the curvature radius is so big (infinite, in fact) that it's still a flat plane.)

On the other hand, it would take them around 10 minutes to write the entire archive of the Testing Area. Or at least something similar. Something Tempers would find hauntingly familiar, in any case.

Some theories were brought forth speculating that BoneMonkey is actually an infinite number of monkeys behind keyboards. Hence the "monkey" part.

If the "bone" part of his name means anything I think typing is the last thing they have on their mind.
