Well, Troll Boy, why don't you show the world how it is possible to do science and engineering even better if we ban the use of 0, negative numbers, pi, root 2 (and all other irrational numbers), 0.333... , 0.999... (and all other repeating decimals), and all axioms and all rules of logic (and whatever else you may have banned lately because you couldn't shoehorn it into your goofy system). If you thought your Wacky New Calclueless was a hard sell...
What a moron.
