04:48 < nitro2k01> Not only that! You imploded the universe!
04:48 < xulthis> well hold on there
04:48  * IAYD is a destroyer of internets and universes
04:48 < xulthis> dividing by zero does nothing technically

04:49 < nitro2k01> Oh the lawyer in you has come out
04:49 < xulthis> you have a pizza and divide it between zero people
04:49 < xulthis> the pizza remains, but theres nobody to eat it
04:49 < xulthis> dividing by zero SHOULD technically be the quanity
                 you started with
04:49 < xulthis> and dividing by zero simply does nothing
04:50 < xulthis> it’s no different than adding or subtracting zero
04:50 < xulthis> but
