Using his Wacky New Number Theory, John Gabriel is unable to formally prove that 2+2=4. (You need Peano's axioms for that. And John Gabriel just HATES Peano's axioms.)

In John Gabriel's Wacky New Calculus, his definition of a derivative doesn't work for y=x^3. His klugey work around? Make the derivative undefined at x=0!!!
