Thats a f@%&ing number??

People with dial up will have to wait 5 minutes to view that page.

You know..I was thinking..now correct me if I'm wrong, but,.........

Since there are infinite numbers..isn't it impossible to figure out the largest prime number..or any other number out there?? I think it's a trick question.

I'd put my answer as "i" since "i" means undefined in math.
