Some equations whose truth values don't change under the filters.

four + 5 = nine

two + 6 = 8 + zero

four + six = 5 + 2 + 2 + 1

zero + one - two - three = - 0

Yes. And if wishes were horses, wishing wells would fill up very quickly with drowned horses.

zero + 0 = zero

seven + 1 = 3 + five

zero + two = 0 + 1 + 1 + 0

five + six - seven - eight = - 4
They do, however, change when quoted. (Though the second one is still true, which is kind of cool.)
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

It breaks after another, but now the next is true.

These comments are going to be weird when things go back to "normal".

### Re: Chocolate chips math

These ones are cyclical:

0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 =
4 + 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 =
3 + 4 + 0 + 1 + 2 =
2 + 3 + 4 + 0 + 1 =
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 0 = 10

zero + five + six + two + seven + eight + four =
five + six + two + seven + eight + four + zero =
six + two + seven + eight + four + zero + five =
two + seven + eight + four + zero + five + six =
seven + eight + four + zero + five + six + two =
eight + four + zero + five + six + two + seven =
four + zero + five + six + two + seven + eight = 32

637 - 416 = 221

Of course, there are a bunch like:
3 - 3 = 6 - 6
2 ÷ 2 = 7 ÷ 7

and also
6 + 8 ≡ 9 (mod five)
