Bad math at CBC

Introduction to a story on CBC Radio’s 4 p.m. national newscast:

The 100-channel universe is becoming more infinite all the time.

Um…guys? Something cannot become “more” infinite. It’s either infinite or it isn’t. And if there are currently 100 channels in your universe (mine’s a bit larger than that, but what the hey), then it definitely isn’t infinite. You could triple that, or quadruple it, or multiply it by a million or even a billion, and it still wouldn’t be “more infinite”–it would be very large, but it would still be finite.

Glad I got that off my chest.
