infinity

He asked a question, which I thought too far off (even if he were to explain, I might still think that way). He asked how many diseases are there in total?
And I thought of the many diseases we may have not encountered (because it was in the past/we have yet to discover) and I told the whole class, it's infinite. 
And he came to look at my paper for evidence, and there it was, the unmistakable horizontal figure of 8. 

In some ways, I feel that I'm right.
Maybe if the question was, how many diseases have been discovered and listed in the ICD, maybe, I would go for a more finite amount. Anyway ICD is just a classification of diseases, aite? meaning, there would be more than one disease under one class, no? 

So, because of some smart ess, now the homework for everyone is to find out what infinity means. I'm sorry classmates :P 

One of the definition of infinity goes by "the limit of the value of a function or variable when it tends to become numerically larger than any preassigned finite number". Hmmm. 

I hope we won't waste time discussing my thoughts in the next lesson though. I was probably wrong for taking things too seriously. Ahahaha.
