The Navier-Stokes equations of fluid flow, used to model ocean currents, weather patterns and other phenomena, have been dubbed one of the seven most important problems in modern mathematics.

Math on "The Simpson's "   In a 1998 episode of The Simpsons, Homer scribbled 398712+436512=447212 on the blackboard. You can check on a calculator and see equivalent results for both sides of the equation! Does this contradict the famous theorem of Fermat?
