So is this a single bed or king size, coz I'm thinking with the amount of people joining it could get rather cosy...
it's custom made, special really - cos it grows big enough to accomodate each new addition
2. Oooh... Like that infinitely large hotel riddle...
3. Awesome! *Jumps about on his own section*

It's called Herbert's Hotel or something...

Basically, it proves that infinity plus or minus one, is infinity. And that double infinity is infinity. But that there are different sizes of infinity, for example there are more irrational numbers than rational numbers, but both have an infinite number of numbers in their set.

The proof, btw, goes something like: someone goes to a hotel with an infinite number of rooms, but is told the hotel is full. The manager gets round this problem by asking the person in room one to move to room two, and the one in room two to move to room three etc, and eventually, there is a vacency in room one, while everyone still has a room :. infinity plus one equals infinity. If an infinite number of people want a room, everyone is asked to move to the room number double their current one. i.e. room one moves to two, room two moves to four etc. This leaves an infinite number of odd numbered rooms available, in which to fit an infinite number of people :. infinity plus infinity equals infinity.

The Mudman suddenly realises he is talking maths, and feels very dirty... In a bad way. He also realises he is talking about himself in the third person, and is incredibly annoyed and dismayed.
