That how ever does mean that 2x infinity is the same amount of inifinty as 1x infinity because the set still is countable.
Imagine a Hotel with infinitely hotel rooms, every room has a number starting by 1, and every room is full.
Then a Bus stops at the hotel and brings 5 guests who wanna sleep in the hotel. What do u do ? Every Room in the hotel is taken and only 1 guest can sleep per room.
It's acctually quite simple: you make everyone move 5 rooms further:
Guest from room 1 goes to 6, G from R2 -> R7, R3->R8, etc. Because there are infinity rooms you can do this with every guest / room, resulting in room 1-5 being free for ur new arrived 5 guests.
=> aka infinity + x = infinity, x is a real number

Now what happens if the arrinving bus has infinity new guests (important: countable infinity!). Your whole hotel still is full and u wanna make place for countable infinity new guests. You still can give everyone an own room just by moving them around:
Send Guests from Roomnumber x to roomnumber 2x:
This will lead to rooms with an even number to be taken by the old guests and every room with an uneven number being free. And there are infinitely of them, but you can still count them. So they are just right for your new arriving infinity of new guets,
==> aka 2x infinity = infinity.

There are however other forms of infinity which are refered to as noncountable infitity. They are so big you cant find a way ( an order) to count them with the natural numbers.

Yeah if my english would not suck i guess you people accutally may understandthis bullshit.

Infinite and never repeating. The idea of "given infinite time and space" or "an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters will eventually produce the full works of Shakespeare".
The longer you run a random incident the smaller the window of "unlikely" becomes.

Even thay example eventually gives credence to the idea posted in the content. The term "I like math", assigned to numbers with 0's being spaces, would be 901291150131208 - so say yiu were counting in that manner, you'd eventually be trying to count to 1000000000000000 and "I like math" would be a few quadrillion before you hit it.
