What is the "infamous" equation?

 Recognitions: Gold Member He probably means 48÷2(9+3). We shouldn't talk about it, though.
 I am as idiot as google. I thought zero to the power zero equaled one, too.

I could be very very wrong about this, but as I understand it, while 0^0 is technically undefined, it's often defined as 1 to simplify certain problems.

It's 2.

 has anyone read 'Stories of your life and others' by Ted Chiang? one of the stories deals with 0/0

It has so many values for physical constants that are outdated or flat-out wrong. Avogadro's number, the astronomical unit, Newton's gravitational constant, pick one: It's probably wrong to some degree or another. For example, the google calculator value for the AU differs from the published value by 129 kilometers. The uncertainty in the published value is 3 meters.
