Whenever mathematicians invoke theorems, I always picture them as anime characters calling out their attacks in a fight.
Dedekinnnndddd CUT! (slices across the real line)
Frobenius! Automorphism! (transforms into a car)
Taaaate... Shafareviiich... GROUP! (summons a swarm of sharp geometric shurikens)
RIEMAAAAANNNN!!! HYPOTHESISSSSS!! (ultimate attack, unblockable, ignores all defenses, huge mushroom cloud leaving behind a huge smouldering crater)
@urusan There's a result that was proven in a funny way. Assume RH: Then the result holds. Assume RH is false: Then the result holds.
Therefore, the result holds.
I'm trying to remember what crazy thing was proven this way.
