What's the square root of infinity?

Boy let me tell you what:

I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.

Infinity squared is infinity, so it follows that the square root of infinity is also infinity. Probably.

It also, quite confusingly, means 'if', for example 'si usted desea' means 'if you wish'
