Simple Proof for FLT?

With some high-school calculus and simple reasoning, this proof aims to show in less than 5 minutes that there's a much, much simpler way to proof FLT than Wiles did in 1995. (At least, that's what I think, though I find it hard to believe it could be really that easy.)

So what am I missing? Where's the flaw? Let me know what you think!

You assume FLT in using the Bennett-Glass-Székely result.

Thanks for pointing that out. That has to be it.
