Firstly, this is not mathematics. No thousand year problems have been solved, this is just general stupidity. This is roughly equivalent to saying the answer to life the universe and everything = 42. Sure you have an answer but it's nonsensical, there's nothing you can do with it. Hooray! Now instead of not being able to do anything when you divide by zero, we have an answer! Sadly, we can't do anything with this answer. Also, if any plane ever falls out of the sky because its software was dividing by zero, the engineers should be promptly be drug out into the street and shot.
