Doesn't the thought of living forever scare the shit out of you?

Just thought I share this little epiphany that I had with you all...

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.

When I clicked this I got a MySQL error, and slightly chuckled inside.

Meaning, "my Aleph is bigger than yours"?

And did you know that a sphere has more points on its surface than an infinite flat plane? Exactly one more.

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.)

I'm in dire need of an infinite martini, cuz my mind just broke.
Can someone loan me an infinite amount of money for an indefinite period.

edit: an infinite martini has a singularity instead of an olive.
mmmmmmm singularities....

Not living forever is scarier I think. As that is what's really gonna happen.

If an infinite amount of monkeys were typing on an infinite amount of typewriters for an infinite amount of time, they'd write the complete works of Shakespeare in order.

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.

You can't be scared when you don't exist.

But the thought of dieing forever is.

And yes, some people (as myself), believe in that we will live forever.
