A man comes up to you and hands you $1000 in cash. He then says:

"Now, don't spend it all, because I'm going to go off and find the largest integer, and after I find it, I'm going to want you to give me $1 back."

Given this stipulation, how much money has he *really* given you?

It was a good teaser but far too easy you should have said:
"Im going to return for the dollar when i find the largest integer in the world"

The largest integer in the world is 9

That's a digit.

I'm not sure what we were supposed to be tricked into thinking.

Some people would answer $999 since he'll be coming back eventually. That is, until one realizes that there is no largest integer, so he'll never be coming back.

1000 dollar for free. that's fantastic!

but, wut if he never find the integer?
still i don't think he'll be coming back for you.
he wouldn't even recognize you at the first place. will he?
