I walked into the printer room at my place of work and saw this proof written on the white board. I can't really find anything wrong with it, but I figured you guys have probably seen it a thousand times. I don't know what it's called, or I would google for it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

0 = 0 + 0 + 0...

0 = (1 - 1) + (1 - 1) + (1 - 1)...

0 = 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1...

0 = 1 + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1)...

0 = 1

Somewhere at the end there's another -1 tacked on, except that it goes on forever. >.<
