Sometimes 2 and 2 can be 5.Is that possible?

I heard that one can twist something so much until it comes out something else.

absolutely, why not, what logic. 2+2=5 is one thing 2 and 2 can be 5 is another thing entirely.

Literally not possible but figuratively and semantically, absolutely possible.  If it was not 1 am in the morning I might be able to give you an example. But as it is, I am not, able that is, going to give that example tonight, or is that morning.

Looks like I am in a most weird mood tonight.

George Orwell's 1984 illustrates this perfectly.  You can also find this in politics and religion.  Take for example the 'prophet' who claimed the world would end last weekend.  Never mind that he was wrong previously to that declaration and wrong last weekend...he's made a  NEW prediction that the world will end on Oct. 21, at 6pm.  Now, the problems with this are legion, but those of us who know our bible know it says that NO ONE knows the day or the hour...not man, not angels, not the apostles...only GOD knows!  So how does this man arrive at the conclusion that he knows?

Idk..? but 10 and 4 can be 2

There's actually a logical reason behind it

Hmm lets see here.If we take each two and label it 2 and give each the value of 2, then we could work out the problem this way.

2=2
and(&)=1.5

so the equation would be: 2& + 2=5

My god i have done it !!! I made 2and 2 equals 5.

Quick everyone,tell hubpage's moderators the great news D!!!

Your question may either be worded incorrectly or you worded it that way on purpose to allow a certain answer, anyway heres my two cents.  With the present wording of your question, yes 2 and 2 can equal 5, but not as Sesshoumaru2st suggested.  Putting the & sign next to the first 2 would mean that 2and 1.5 would have to be multiplied.  And 2(1.5) does not equal 5.  However if you were to somehow change the value of 2 to 2.5 then the sum could be 5.  The answer would probably look like this:

2 + 2 = 5   when 2 = 2.5

As for a non mathematical answer to your question goes, that is more difficult.  It may be possible that everything can be twisted (with the help of science or...magical powers, whoooo) into something else, but it would probably take a long time for us to figure that out as are existence on this planet is still very new and our intelligence is not yet that advanced.  Now the question is what does my two cents and your two cents equal?
