Terrence Howard Invents New Kind of Math, Is Probably Insane

by at .

If you only know Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon from Empire or the original Rhodey from the Iron Man franchise, prepare for a bit of a shock:

Howard is an undeniably a talented actor, but he's also eccentric to the point that might be certifiably insane.

Howard's female troubles have made tabloid headlines in recent months, beginning with his claim that second wife Michelle Ghent is extorting him with photos of his penis.

As this drama was still unfolding, word came out that Howard was secretly divorcing his third wife, Mira Pak.

But serial divorcers are nothing new in Hollywood. What is new is someone claiming that they've discovered that 1 times 1 actually equals 2. Allow T-How to rock your math world:

"This is the last century that our children will ever have been taught that one times one is one," Howard says.

"They won’t have to grow up in ignorance. Twenty years from now, they’ll know that one times one equals two. We’re about to show a new truth. The true universal math."

That's from a Rolling Stone profile of Howard that's going viral today thanks to the revelation that Howard is way more batsh-t than anyone realized.

Howard explains that he and Pak developed the new system (which he calls "Terryology." Seriously.) by spending 17 hours a day on a completely nuts-o project that sounds like arts and crafts hour at a pre-school founded by L. Ron Hubbard.

"He began writing down his logic, in a language of his own devising that he calls Terryology," Rolling Stone writes.

"He wrote forward and backward, with both his right and left hands, sometimes using symbols he made up that look foreign, if not alien, to keep his ideas secret until they could be patented. 

"[Howard and Pak] would spend up to 17 hours a day cutting shapes out of the plastic and joining them together into various objects meant to demonstrate not only his one-times-one theory but many others as well.”

It's worth noting that Howard was fired from the Iron Man sequels because he was just too crazy for Robert Downey Jr.'s taste.

Compared to the revelation that it's possible for someone to be too crazy for RDJ, this 1x1=2 business actually doesn't seem so ridiculous.
