### Panel 1

Two people are talking

Person 1: If you assume contradictory axioms, you can derive anything. It's called the principle of explosion.

Person 2: *Anything?* Lemme try.

### Panel 2

Person 2 writes something on a piece of paper.

### Panel 3

Person 2 shows the paper to person 1

Person 2: Hey, you're right! I started with P∧¬P and derived NP∧¬NP.

Person 1: That's not how that works.

### Panel 4

Person 2 is now talking on a phone

### Panel 2
