Yeah, we know. That's what we're calling "stupid". It's stupid. Plain stupid. Insanely stupid. Next you'll be saying that we can leave 2^2 undefined (and be consistent) if we simply exclude 2 from the list of permitted bases.
99% of the people in the world, if they were told "what you just said was garbage" would at least give some thought to whether the charge has merit. You show not the slightest inclination to question your own work, which is the mark of someone with absolutely no business around science and math.
