Drunk you say Occifer?

I 'aven't 'ad ah drop 'onest.

Look you are you an optimist or a pessimist?
A pessimist I see.

Well I am an optimist and I will show you it's the same thing.

You say the glass is half empty, I say it is half full.

1/2 empty = 1/2 full

Multiply through by 2

empty = full

or 6 empty glasses = 6 full glasses

and I have therefore have drunk only 6 empty glasses.

I love proofs like that.

I saw another version, but I forgot the details. It of course essentially did the same thing, but with several more "spare" steps.

The one about "Time = Evil" is neat too.

If you have more "funny proofs", I'd like to see them!

Isn't that Girls=evil?

We all know Girls are time and money, so we have:

1 Girls=Tx\$

Now, every one also knows that time is money such that:

2 T=\$

Substitute 2 into 1 we get

3 Girls=\$x\$

Or

4 Girls=\$^2

Again, we draw on everyday knowledge to note that money is the root of all evil:

5 \$=Evil^.5

Square both side of 5 to get:

6 \$^2=Evil

Then it follows from 4 and 6

7 Girls=Evil
