Does 1 = 2? seems so...
If a and b are equal positive integers then:

1) a = b (given)
2) a2 = ab (multiply both sides by a)
3) a2 - b2= ab - b2 (subtract b2 from both sides)
4) (a + b)(a - b) = b(a - b) (factor both sides)
5) a + b = b (divide both sides by a - b)
6) 2b = b (replace a by b since a = b and simplify from b + b to 2b)
7) 2 = 1 (divide both sides by b)

EDIT: Most folks were right. I'll find something more difficult for next time ;)
