Dividing by Zero

I’ve gotten a few emails about a math professor who claims to have solved the problem of dividing by zero. With the caveat that I am not a professional mathematician, I’m pretty sure this is silly.

Wondermark Auction for Child's Play

David Malki: He’s the author of Wondermark, in which he painstakingly scans and cleans up illustrations from his collection of 19th-century rare books, and then smears poop jokes all over them in Photoshop.
