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.

but for n=2 ?

that needs another complete proof :)

Yeah, of course. Haha, it seems that Fermat's isn't strong enough to prove that...
