    Ghosh's theorem: Maths is better than Chemistry.

    Proof: Let's prove this by contradiction. Suppose Chemistry is better than Maths; but I prefer Maths - also we can use the so-called Ghosh Property, which states that I am always correct/awesome - hence preferring Maths is both correct and awesome, but then we have a contradiction! Q.E.D.

    Let's get this sorted out: Chemistry is applied physics, and physics is applied maths, so chemistry is essentially very applied maths.
