    What is the answer to 1 + 1, and why?

    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Lol. I'll retract what I posted. I was trying to figure it out by talking to myself. These are the parts I thought made sense:

    The Inverse Law states that anything minus itself equals zero.

    Under experimentation with two identical objects not in the same space, I observe:
    1+1-1 is not zero
    Therefore 1 + 1 is NOT 1.

    Under further experimentation I observe:
    1+1-1-1 is zero
    Both objects are identical, yet no matter which order I remove them in, I get zero. I intuitively claim that each object is half of 1+1. I propose that the double of one (object) is called "two". Why? Because this saves us the trouble of saying "one plus one" every time we refer to a double quantity of objects.

    In the ring of integers with the usual addition and multiplication: 1+1=2. Consult the Peano Axioms if you want a reason.

    In the ring of integers modulo 2: 1+1=0.

    Final answer: Just go with 2 if you don't want to play around with basic algebra.
