This is a calculator.

Scientists in Moscow, Russia, have recently uncovered a startling truth 103 years in the making. It is now a scientific fact: 2 plus 2 in fact equals 5.

"I always knew that there was something wrong with that equation. I could just never put my finger on it," says Olga Olgonson, a local inhabitant who commented on the discovery.

The new discovery, revealed by a mathematically controversial group called NUMBERZ, has thrown the numerical world in utter madness. Math books all over the face of the earth are in the process of being changed, and world leaders are in the process of meeting together to discuss the significance of this equation, including Dmitry Medvedev (President of Russia), Barack Obama (President on United States), and Federico Franco (Vice President of Paraguay).

The president of NUMBERZ, Russian mathematician Boris Bredvedev, commented by saying, "Discovery of equation is good. Enjoy me fame. Many good is nice because today tomorrow twice."

In addition to knowing practically no English, Bredvedev is just one of the leaders in the organizations ancient legacy, started in 1906 in a little village with an extremely Russian name.

Citizens of various countries in the world are now waiting for developments in regard to this new equation, many hoping that it will somehow get us out of the present economic slump.
