lets see what kind of epic fail this thread can generate

If three is two....then you need a tutor for math.

I've tried my best to repeatedly prove this theory. It's never really two unless you somehow meld the two chicks together. Perhaps if brought in some double-sided connecting toys.

I remember this exercise back in math class.
Let's stipulate that 3 is 2 and start calculating this way.
Strange results.

you misspelled "for" its F-O-U-R

i don't see enough epic fail... i've failed at creating epic fail... have i failed or succeeded?

Oh no. You failed. You failed pretty well too. But there were a few things that we needed to get out before we slammed you with the fail pics.

3 may not be 2 but 1 is 2 here is my proof

Let a=b.
Then a[SUP]2[/SUP]=ab
a[SUP]2[/SUP]+a[SUP]2[/SUP]=a[SUP]2[/SUP]+ab
2a[SUP]2[/SUP]=a[SUP]2[/SUP]+ab
2a[SUP]2[/SUP]-2ab=a[SUP]2[/SUP]+ab-2ab
2a[SUP]2[/SUP]-2ab=a[SUP]2[/SUP]-ab
2(a[SUP]2[/SUP]-ab)=1(a[SUP]2[/SUP]-ab)
which simplifies to 2=1... first person to point out my mistake gets a cookie

in your second step after the given, you said a squared plus a squared equals a squared which equals ab. The equation is no longer balanced: makes no sense.

then two steps down, you added 2ab to one side, but subtracted it from the other side. But then again, the next step is written as if it were done correctly. Nothing's making sense..

sorry that was meant to be a + i changed it... now try and find whats wrong or admit that 2=1

What kind of cookie?

14. ### vindy500

a squared cannot =ab unless b=a

I don't know about three being two.

But if 6 was 9, awesomeness happens.

"2a[SUP]2[/SUP]-2ab=a[SUP]2[/SUP]-ab"

You added 2ab on one side and subtracted it on the other.

damn i made a couple of slip ups in writing it i forgot how it went but its a snickerdoodle as I am well known for on an online community which will remained unnamed to protect my dorkiness

That's a tragedy. I think you owe a cookie to all the people who's time you wasted.

oh that's easy: hold up 2 fingers and say "this is 3." My friend did that yesterday with 4 and 7. We were stuck in a parallel dimension for 4 days (.03 seconds here) but it was awesome because the population was 100% (what i assumed to be) hot chicks.
