Hah! Do you call this mathematics? I call it child's play. Here is my
proof that 1+1=1:

For any integer N, N+N=2N. Now let N->99999... so that we also have
2N->99999... (plug it into your calculator if you don't believe me). So we
arrive at:

99999... + 99999... = 99999...

Now divide through by 99999... to obtain

1+1=1.

Now I can prove that I am the pope:

I am one, the pope is one, therefore I and the pope are one.

end sarcasm
