Answer Me This...


Just a couple of interesting queries on Quora recently:

1)  "What is the largest non-integer that naturally occurs in mathematics?"

You can see the top answer ("Ramanujan's constant"), and others, here:

and, even more broadly,  
2) "What is the most intriguing mathematical concept you have ever encountered?"

Of course many good selections for this one, though I was a bit surprised to not see one of my own favorites, "Cantor's dust" or "Cantor Set," mentioned in the responses when I last leafed through them:
