comment What would base $1$ be?
for representing 0 you can define a number to be represented by 1+itself symbols. so 0 would be | and 1 would be || etc.

comment Is this an open problem?
expand your base to 100 and the number divided by 99 (same principle there)

comment Is this binary operation commutative?
with $x=y*(y*x)$ the $x*y$ should be $(y*(y*x))*y$ essentially you proved $y*x=y*x$

comment Why not write $\sqrt{3}2$?
@ThomasAndrews there's also $x_2$ to confuse it with especially when you pronounce $x_2$ as "ecks two"

comment Where's the problem in this equation? Resulting in $4 = 5$
you could try to solve the left and right side on each line and see where it starts to differ

comment Big O Notation reliability?
it's still wrong $100=10^2$ so $a$ should be equal to $2$ not $100$

comment Big O Notation reliability?
how do you get from $1=\frac{n^{0.001}}{100}$ to $n=10^\frac{100}{0.001}$?

comment Examples of apparent patterns that eventually fail
@Peter not to mention that (with E a number of even kind and O of odd kind) E*E=E E*O=O O*E=O and O*O=E (just like with addition and normal odd/even in terms of mod 2) which would result in 1 being of even kind so that E*1=E and O*1=O

comment Examples of apparent patterns that eventually fail
@phkahler if you go by the fact that $1$ is not a prime then $1$ is of even kind because it has $0$ prime factors (and last I checked $0$ is even)

comment Pythagorean Theorem Proof Without Words (request for words)
congruent triangles at least there's a right angle and the respective adjoining it sides are equal lengths
