# Girls = Evil

$$For Lee, \begin{equation*} \begin{split} Claim: Girls &= Evil\\ Girls &= Money * Time\\ Time &= Money\\ Girls &= Money^2\\ Money &= \sqrt{Evil}\\ Girls &= \sqrt{Evil}^2 = Evil\\ \end{split}\end{equation*} Q.E.D.$$

I don't get it, money isn't evil, it is those who lust for it who give it the bad name.

You have surely heard the phrase "Money is the root of all evil" ie money is the root of evil. Of course it does not specify square root of evil it could be the cube root or an even higher power. So it is not exactly clear that total equality holds, but it sure is a good approximation.

Yes, I have heard of the phrase, I'm not stupid, I just don't see how A)this is funny or B)how money could really be the root of all evil. Now if we are religious then we'd say that Satan is the root of al evil. But if we are thinking from a purely objective and scientific veiw, people are. It has nothing to do with the objects. For example, it's like saying weapons are the source of all murders, but one doesn't convict a weapon, it is the murderers who murder people and are responsible and should be convicted.

jonathan, relax a bit, it was a joke

Yes, I know, I have a stick up by butt. I also don't understand the 'For Lee' and 'QED' parts. Really, the joke went over and under my head at the same time.

QED = Quod Erat Demonstandum
aprox translation = and so we have, it is demonstrated

I don't understand "For Lee" either......

Over generalizations = evil.

(Girls=money*time)= social parasite with XX chromosome

Replace girls with boys you get...

(boys=money*time) = social parasite with XY chromosome

Assuming money*time is used in a negative connotative manner.

Otherwise, children=money*time which leads to children=evil. Thus, since children do not equal evil, then girls do not equal evil.

### Guybrush Threepwood

actually if children do not equal evil, then for girls not to equal evil you have to prove that children equals girls....
that's how math works....

also to be picky I can say that children = money*time*love thus children doesn't equal girls

Did I also mention math is evil?

### Jeebus

I wouldn't go as far as saying as money is evil, as Jonathan touched upon, but I would say that money can corrupt.

Well the quote " money is the root of all evil"

Is in fact a misquote of the bible.

The correct quote if memory serves is :

"The love of money is the root of all evil"

If you going to quote things you really should know the source and get it correct.

As Guybrush Threepwood said, "relax a bit, it was a joke" If you want to nit pick this obviously funny mathmatical equation then do it elsewhere. I could dive into how 'money' is metaphorical meaning 'all worldly possesions'. Then this equation makes no sense.

I had to read it three times before I got the punch line at the end.

Very good PrudensOptimus.

Hi

This is a 2nd attempt to reply, Don't know what happened before.

"Money is the root of all evil" is a misquote of 1 Timothy chapter 6 verse 10.

This is rendered differently in different English translations but I think a good sence of it would be:

"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil"

You really should try to get quotes correct you know otherwise you
end up with erronious assertions like the one you posted.
It should have been obvious from the start that girls are of far greater value than the square root of anything.

Oh that's really Odd after posting a 2nd time I can see my 1st post, the original and subsequent ones but nothing in between.

Ps.

I'm relaxed, of course it's a joke so was my reply in a way.

I like this thread. This is nice.

IMO, two of life's 'truths' have been posted here.

1. Math is evil
2. Girls are of far greater value than the square root of anything.
(I would like to include men in this statement -- we ARE all
all equal, aren't we )
