My kids were quizzing me with simple math questions last night.  This like, "What is 65 + 82?"  "Okay, what is 2000 + 110?"    They persisted.  "What is 10,000,000  + 1025?"  Anyway, you get the picture.  Finally, they huddled up amongst themselves with a friend or two and attempted to launch this stumper.  Was ol' Soothsayer really as smart as he appeared to be.  "What is infinity + infinity?" they proudly asked, sure that they had gotten one by me.

I responded with a straight face.  "That's easy," I said.  "Eleventy kabillion."  "But, how do you know that," they wondered.  "There is a consortium of financial advisors from all over the world that meet on an internet site to solve even the most difficult problems.  We figured that one out together a long time ago."

Maybe just a little bit of a stretch......

Outstanding.  Glad my imaginary number is coming in handy not only in the business world, but in the homes.  My next quest - to conquer the schools (I mean, how much worse could the educational system get).

Why would Broker Recruit talk about "My imaginary number?"

Who invented "Eleventy Kabillion?"

Could Joe and Broker Recruit be the same person?

Technically, no one can invent a number - someone can introduce it, though.

And no, Joe and I are not the same person.

I understand, but why would you say "My Imaginary Number" when to the best of my knowledge you have never used it?

Hi Joe.

Search the archives, Soon - you will find your answer there.  Just because someone uses a term/phrase, doesn't mean they introduced it.
