"Fractions" -- it's just division for extremely lazy people.
What's 3 divided by 4? I'm too damn lazy to figure it out. In fact, I'm wiped out just forming this sentence. How about we call it 3/4 and you let me go back to sleep?
Fractions for geopolitics would look like this: "Say, what's the solution to the problem in Iraq?" "Oh, that's easy. It's problem-in-Iraq-solution."
Fractions for getting a large boat into a bottle? "In-bottle-big-boat it!"
Fractions for keeping a dog from eating your ham? "Dog-not-eat-ham him."
Please. Don't waste my time. With fractions.
