-I accept this debate because i know that if post-it notes are not stopped soon tat all on america will soon perish off the face of the earth.-

-As we all know.. post-it notes are peices of paper with the ability to stick to surfaces-

-These could easily be used as atomic bombs because of the simple fact that you could bring and post said note anywhere and then on that sheet of post-it "divide by zero". The effects would be cataclysmic. [1]-

-Knowing this we must eliminate the post it note.. for if we dont we will all have to move to the moon-

Dividing by zero is impossible, therefore there can be no explosion.

This is the only thing I can refute besides your source, which is a picture.

Con wins.

Voters: Please use this calculator to divide any number you want by zero.

It says "Infinity". Your computer does not explode. Therefore, post it notes are not dangerous.

"Dear Dr. Science: Why can't you divide by zero?"

"I don't know about you, but I can and often do divide by zero... but only after I've taken the proper precautions. First of all, I fast for 48 hours, consuming only mildly fluoridated water during that time. Next I don a special Mylar/Teflon suit and put on a digitally recorded CD of Gregorian chants."

"I begin by dividing very small numbers by other very small numbers. As the numbers get smaller and smaller, the sparks begin to fly. If all goes well, I take a deep breath and divide a very small number by zero."

"There's a flash of light, a muffled roar....and when I come to, the lab is filled with smoke and the scent of burning Mylar. So you see, you can divide by zero if you really want to. But chances are, you just don't want to badly enough!"
