Calculus theorems are pointless, they can all be easily re derived on the spot if you don't see a solution intuitively.

Take the pigeonhole principle, for example. It's ridiculously intuitive and obvious, but it can help you solve some really tough theorems or problems.

Some theorems are pretty cool and can be appreciated, but a theorem like Rolle's theorem is really intuitive and..bleh.
