A lot!

Edit: Ok, not really. My clock is one hour ahead of the forums so I keep thinking I'll get lots of time but not really :'(

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.

Parts a-x in my plan weren't that important anyways.

My mental arithmetic varies unpredictably between "impressive" and "can't add two single digit numbers". It's safer just not to trust it.
