comment How to divide two inequalities
Food for thought: Clearly you cannot divide by $x+y$ if $x=0$ and $y=0$; are there other points, besides $(0,0)$, missed using the OP's suggested method?

comment Learning path to the proof of the Weil Conjectures and étale topology
@JavierÁlvarez and I were able to resolve this; if others are reading this comment and would like a copy of my -- simplistic -- undergraduate thesis, then email me at the address from my user page! I will happily furnish a copy if you will try to read it with kind eyes.

comment Does every “balloon” (dragon, tadpole, canoe paddle) admit a graceful labeling?
This answer's generalization combines with what (apparently) exists in the literature to give the definitive answer: Yes, all balloons (dragons, tadpoles, etc.) admit graceful labelings. Thanks for the response(s).

Thanks for your answer, CL.

@MarkoRiedel Thank you for the careful checking; as a result, I've (temporarily...) "unchecked" the answer above...

comment Three-valued logic as foundation
You might read up on intuitionistic mathematics ("intuitionism") and "their" view on the law of excluded middle.

comment Does every “balloon” (dragon, tadpole, canoe paddle) admit a graceful labeling?
@mjqxxxx Right: I am quite sure that it is true for all "dragons"; but I haven't seen a paper with an actual proof!
