Three English scientists are on a train to Scotland for an interdisciplinary conference.

After crossing the border, the biologist says: Hey look, in Scotland cows are brown!

The statistician says: No: in Scotland SOME cows are brown!

The logician says: No: in Scotland there are at least 4 cows with at least 1 brown side.

It doesn’t matter what value you claim is the sum, according to Goedel you can’t prove it anyway. (View from the Solent

I assume you mean that if you *deny* the axiom of choice, then proving that 2+2=4 gets hard. So strictly, according to Goedel, you *can* prove it – provided you buy this axiom he just happens to have conveniently to hand.

I strongly assert my inalienable right to buy and own an axiom of choice, and to carry it around with me at all times for use on any climate scientist or similar I may encounter.
