Now now, that just won't do. That doesn't constitute a complete proof. Here are some more acceptable methods for proving propositions:

**Proof by Obviousness:**"The proof is so clear that it need not be mentioned."

**Proof by General Agreement:**"All in favor?..."

**Proof by Imagination:**"Well, we'll pretend it's true."

**Proof by Convenience:**"It would be very nice if it were true, so..."

**Proof by Plausibility:**"It sounds good so it must be true."

**Proof by Intimidation:**"Don't be stupid, of course it's true."

**Proof by Mumbo-Jumbo:**"For any epsilon > 0 there exists a

corresponding delta > 0 s.t. f(x)-L < epsilon

whenever x-a < delta."

... and so on. Alas, I didn't come up with those methods though: for a complete list, see

Enjoy. :-)
