This is from an old book read years ago, from old memory...
Hi all, delurking and blindposting whlie ketchupping (our tribe has a strange dialect of English, hasn't it?).
Fun fact: It can be shown by a diagonal argument that the cardinality of the set of rational numbers is equal to the cardinality of the set of integer numbers, i. e. aleph-null. However, also between any two rationals, there are infinite rationals. So, the equivalent statement for real numbers, while true, does not by itself imply that the cardinality of reals is necessarily larger than aleph-null.
ETA: Of course someone else already had pointed out the same, I knew I should have checked out the rest of the same page at least before posting...

I went to the trouble to make a nice png of this with Rebonack but the spamfilter wants me to post a few times before I can link to it.
Hi svenman and der_Metzger, and welcome!
And yes, memories of video games and other fantasy dungeon experiences do seem to come to mind during these newpix. Optional Papal decree: describe a relevant fantasy dungeon experience. (Keep it G- or PG-rated, please.)
