Galloping Galoshes: If you're the hotel manager of an infinite hotel (a hotel with infinite rooms) which fortunately for business is completely full, and a weary traveler comes to your desk and asks for a room, can you give him one and if so how?


I`d say to the guy in room one "We have to move you so we are upgrading you to the penthouse. It`s on the top floor, last row, last door. It`s very nice. We will have your stuff taken up." and never see him again.

Saves having to move everybody just for one guy as well.

pivazena: Hey, 14/14 on the grammar quiz.  because it was a horribly designed quiz


14/14, terrible quiz. Truth and pride are awful examples of abstract and collective nouns.
