Incorrect conclusion. I reiterate - it is unnecessary to provide such a proof in order to demonstrate the inadequacy of another's proof. Are you a bit thick?

I insult Pamela, as she's a troll and a bit thick. I insult you as you're apparently a bit thick. You may be a troll too, I'll plonk you if and when I conclude that.

It is a set containing the two elements, 0 and 1. Are you a bit thick?

Useless. It depends on the domain you're working in. If you're going to ask a question that demands a precise answer, then please try a bit harder to be a bit more precise with the question.

Bit-thickness confirmed.

sci.math retained for obvious reasons. Only embarressed by the fact that you're such a palooka.
