2 + 2 = 5
6 * 9 = 42
I can't think of any others off the bat...

What you talking about?

There is no mathmatical way to prove that the angles of all 4 corners of a square are 90 degrees or the total adds up to 360 degrees. Thus are entire mathmatical system is based on theory not fact.
It is possible to create an object in space that has finite volume but infinite surface area (think it's called gabriel's horn). Example it can only hold so much paint but can never be painted.

but can you draw a picture of it?

Well since a picture is a 2-d representation of it I would say yes. At some point the object would become so thin that it would disappear visually. Of course if you did it to scale it would probably still take a s#!tload of paper. :biggrin1:

Just go and toss the formulas into the topic. Now it's no fun.
