    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! :D

    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=$x$


    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
