1. Let a and b be equal non-zero quantities

a = b \,

2. Multiply through by a

a^2 = ab \,

3. Subtract b^2 \,

a^2 - b^2 = ab - b^2 \,   At this point you have proven that 0=0

4. Factor both sides

Mutliplication on any side 0=0

5. Divide out Division by 0 does not compute!

a + b = b \,

6. Observing that a = b \,

b + b = b \,

7. Combine like terms on the left

2b = b \,

8. Divide by the non-zero b

2 = 1 \,

Q.E.D.

 

Hmmm!

"an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust."

http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

 

And Wikipedia has convinced me by displaying this :

 

The word often appears in books or stories as a comically long word, e.g. "Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy" (an episode of The Simpsons), Abraham Simpson asks Homer whether pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is what's wrong with Marge; a cartoon episode of Rocket Power, in which a dimwitted character named Twister successfully spells the word on his spelling test; High School Musical 2: What's What Edition refers to this as the longest word.

 

If it's appeared in The Simpsons and High School Musical then it's got to be a load of tosh !
