Erdos: Ramsey Problem

With the passing of Erdos, I was reminded about the Ramsey problems he
was working on. I remember that the statement of the problem is
deceptively simple, but that the number of possibilities grows so fast
that they are uncomputable by n=5, necessitating mathematical proof.

Does anyone know about these Ramsey problems.

We only have two things to fear ... that things may never get back to
normal ... or that they already have!!!

Everyone in America has the right to their own STUPID opinion.
