8 Insane Things Celebrities Actually Believe Are Real Science

Quick, what's 1 x 1? If you said "one" then, according to Terrence Howard, you're wrong.

Apparently, this simple bit of arithmetic did not have Howard convinced, as the actor insists that 1 x 1 actually equals 2. He's even come up with his own mathematical theory called "Terryology".

To be clear, when we say "come up with his own mathematical theory", it is less like Isaac Newton inventing calculus and more like the ramblings of a man who lives under a bridge. Here is Terry's theory in his own words:

"How can it equal one? If one times one equals one that means that two is of no value because one times itself has no effect. One times one equals two because the square root of four is two, so what's the square root of two? Should be one, but we're told it's two, and that cannot be."

Does this make perfect sense to you? If so, you might want to try upping your daily recommended dose.
