You may have seen the proof before. Roughly speaking, it goes like this:
girls = time x money (because girls are time and money*)
time = money (proverbial cliche) therefore:
girls = money2 Then, since
money = evil1/2 (generally credited to The Bible, I Timothy 6:10), THEREFORE:
girls =( evil1/2)2, or girls = |evil|
However, it has recently come to my attention that the assumption that "money = evil" may not be entirely accurate. Indeed, according to Chinese proverb:
time > money
Subsituting this into the proof, we find that girls are not, in fact, the root of all evil, but something slightly more, since you can't simple assume that
time x money = money2.
So there. Take that.
*For the moment, I'll ignore the fact that "and" is used in mathematical terminology to represent "+", not "x"... which means girls are 2(evil1/2).
