comment Algebra and Cancer Research
I visited a talk a while ago, where the speaker described how the dynamics of blood groups worked in a population. This gave rise to a very specific algebraic variety, and the blood group proportions that we see now today, could be explained, using this variety. This is not exactly cancer research, but definitely in the field of medicine.

comment Dead Flies Problem
How about defining the "average density" as $\lim_{r \to \infty} F_r/B_r$ where $F_r$ are the number of points within distance $r$ from the origin, and $B_r$ the area of a circle with radius $r$?

comment Applications of really large numbers
Thank you! I am aware of all the sources you linked to, but they do not really satisfy me as much as I'd like (see my post edit). Surely, the numbers that appear are truly large, but the result in the end is just "this is a large number", If you asked a person in complex analysis what theory of analytic functions is good for, then she would not say "Oh, we use this to construct cool analytic functions", but rather "These particular analytic functions are used to show this other result in other area", which a priori do not really look like they need analytic functions.

comment Applications of really large numbers
In my opinion, the interesting part here is essentially the existence and finiteness of Grahams bound, not so much the size. If the proof in some sense relies on Grahams number in an essential way, then this is an application, but if there is a lot of extra effort to find a bound of the number, then it does not add so much extra value, I think. Similarly, the recent progress of the twin prime conjecture is not really about the size of the gap between primes, but its finiteness, even though the initial number was a quite large number (70 millions).

comment Is there a graph with 99 vertices in which every edge belong to a unique triangle and every nonedge to a unique quadrilateral?
You of course have $\binom{99}{2} = 3t + 4q$ where $t$ is the number of triangles, and $q$ is the number of quadrilaterials, so there are some restrictions, if such a solution exists.

comment Best lecture notes in pure mathematics
Have a look at what other people have done in other areas. Personally, I like the books by R. Stanley in enumerative combinatorics.
