 You're wrong. If you draw two 8's correctly, you can get infinity to the power of infinity.
Technically, both are correct, because infinity^(x) is still infinity, regardless fo whether x is 2 or infinity.

Is set of digits {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}? Is the set of digits two of your fingers? I can hold a writing implement with two digits and write whatever you can plus one. If you turn two 8's sideways, don't you get two 8's sideways?

For all REAL numbers n, yes...infinity doesn't count as a "real" number, and exponentiation of infinity only matters when you evaluate something like (infinity)/(infinity^2), which is equivalent to 1/(infinity) which is equivalent to 0.

She sees a parrot and asks the salesman whether or not the parrot can talk, to which he replies that the parrot will repeat every word it hears, and she buys the parrot. The next week she goes back to the store and angrily (and crazily) tries to return the parrot, because it hasn't said a thing to her since she bought it...so why does the parrot refuse to talk to her?

there is no such thing as a higher degree of infinity. infinity^infinity is equal to infinity. by its very definition the value of infinity is boundless, so raising it to a power is meaningless, because it is still boundless.

true. plus the fact that it's not a number. it's something number series can tend to, but it has no concrete meaning as far as numbers go.

They didn't freeze, and there was no avalanche.

Correct.

 16th March 2003, 05:32 #72 BMWboy Registered User     Join Date: Apr 2002 Location: next the the guy that lives over there Posts: 1,360 here is the new riddle: a man takes his son out to a ballgame. on the way back, the car they are driving in is blind-sided by a drunk driver. the father is killed instantly, and the son is criticaly injured. the son is rushed to the nearest hospital. the ER surgeon takes one look at the child and says "I can't operate on this child, this is my son." How can this be true?

I was processing some cds. I was not writing my number Here's a good one. Source: February 2003 Games In the three puzzles below, each letter stands for a digit () from 0 to 9; codes change from puzzle to puzzle. When the correct numbers are substituted, the result will be a simple addition problem. note: The first letter of a word is never represented by 0 (zero).

Its a toal guess and check problem. No logic in the world could help you figure that out.

 16th March 2003, 22:22 #78 FesterHead Alumni     Join Date: Sep 2001 Location: Maui, Hawaii Posts: 14,108 Q: Is SPAIN supposed to be lined up like that? A: Yes. S: Its a toal guess and check problem. No logic in the world could help you figure that out. R: Sure, but make it easier by using educated guesses based on reasoning (i.e. logic) From the hint on puzzle 1, you know the value of A. From the value of A, you know some combinations that can and cannot be N plus I.

the first one of those can only be the first answer, if i'm not mistaken.
