Firstly, let me say that this is a joke. Don't take it personally. I made this one up - I haven't heard it before so sorry if it already exists.

British peoples' thoughts are worth more than American peoples'

Proof: Americans put in their two cents while British people put in their two penny worth. At the current exchange rate 1p is about 1.9 cents.
Therefore British thoughts are more expensive.


Another one: Girls are evil

Proof: Girls require time and money to raise so girls = time * money
Time is money so girls = money * money
Money is the root of all evil so girls = evil


Anyone got any others?

1) Brit thoughts may be more expensive- it doesn't make them more valuable (no offense; i'm british)
2) Do boys not need time and money to be raised?
v. funny though!

If girls require time and money, wouldnt it be more likely to have girl = time + money? :P

Heres one,

Given that a=b
a^2 = a*b
(a^2) - (b^2) = ab - (b^2)

difference of 2 squares means (a^2) - (b^2) = (a+b) * (a-b)

and ab - (b^2) can be factorised to b(a-b)

(a+b) * (a-b) = b(a-b)

take *(a-b) from both sides and you get

(a+b) = b

a+a = a

2a = a

2 = 1

nope,

2a = a

2a-a=0

a(2-1)=0

a=0

sorry!

No, it's implying that time and money are factors of a girl, they are nothing if there is either no time or money. If it were the sum of time and money, then girls could exist entirely on time or money, which clearly isn't true!

ah but what about food etc?
also, then a girl would be able to survive on 0.00001 seconds of time as long as she had enough money

sorry!

You cant deny that the equation

2a = a

where a is a real number and an interger
proves that 2 = 1

but you can deny the division of (a-b) as it is 0 and therefore undifined
