We know that women like two things, your time and your money
Therefore
women = time x money
now time equals money, so
women = money x money
Money is the root of all evil, so
money = square root of evil
By squaring both sides of the equation,
money squared = evil
Now go back to the equation
women = money x money
See where I'm headed?
women = money squared = evil
A problem with this "proof" occurred to me immediately: Since evil is
negative, the square root of evil must be imaginary, which would mean that
money is imaginary, and therefore, by definition, so is time.
Then I realized that, in my life at least, that's pretty much true.
