Does anyone have any (hysterical) ridiculously-overblown proofs of simple statements? I'll give an example: $$\sqrt[n]{2}$$ is irrational for all $$n>2\in \mathbb{Z}$$ Proof: Suppose $$\sqrt[n]{2}=\frac{p}{q}$$ for some $$p,q\in \mathbb{Z}$$, then $2=\frac{p^n}{q^n} \implies\\ 2q^n=q^n+q^n=p^n$Contradicting Fermat's Last Theorem. I'd love to see some more of these, haha.
