Girls are evil…?
By Murray Bourne, 09 Sep 2007
Sorry, girls. This "proof that girls are evil" is here purely for its mathematical value.
Please don't shoot me - I'm only the messenger.
Actually, this might be a fun way to get students thinking more about math notation and its meaning.
Poetry involving Greek symbols, anyone?

Maybe I'm really a bit literary: money may also refer to 'fame' or 'success' or whatever we desire.

I would like to challenge this "proof":
1. Girls require time and money = "Girls = Time * Money"?
If I require water, is "I = water" true?
2. "time is money"?
If you have 10 years to kill, could you buy anything that costs $3652?
3. "money is the root of all evil"?
Add "For the love of" before "money" and it becomes true. "For the love of money is the root of all evil." (KJV 1 Timothy 6:10a) And it is proven that the Bible is always true.

Besides, "root" may mean cube root, 4th-power root, etc. In the statement "money is the root of all evil", it is a metaphor, meaning that all evil is based on ^money^ - not always true; all evil is based on the *love of money* - true.
