Infinity and beyond

I never realised before becoming a parent how quickly the day would come when I could no longer answer my children's questions.

Having foolishly explained the concept of infinity to my six year old after a discussion about really, really big numbers, she then wanted to know whether it was even or odd.

Thanks to the power of google (no they're not sponsoring me!) I can now reveal that as infinity is a concept rather than an actual number it is neither even nor odd.

Hopefully you will sleep better for knowing that, but please don't thank me, thank the joint powers of the mind of a six year old teamed up with the dazzling infinity of this here internet.

What would we do without Google?
