dividing by zero does not work. The function "divide" is not defined for zero. It's like asking "what happens when you add three to a sausage".

In case it wasn't obvious, I do know that dividing by zero is a mathematical impossibility. I do not know, however, how this dwarven calculator would react if anyone attempted the impossible. Please, someone try! xD

If you look back in the thread, some people did try, and they got 8008135, which is significant only in that the digits resemble the letter in "BOOBIES".

Alternatively, trying to use it to divide by zero is what created this.
