HNO2 + 3HN3 -> 5N2 + 2H2O

4HNO2 + 2HN3 -> 5N2O + 3H2O

so, for example:

4169HNO2 + 4637HN3 -> 5105N2 + 3935N2O + 4403H2O

is correctly balanced ;)

:o
As lemonoman said, I wonder how many times in in my life (which is most likely going to be a chemist-life ;) ) I'll have to balance such equations... :P

That's a trick that have nothing to do with chemistry. But looks very seriously chemically :)

You may generate such equations by yourself, just follow description from my lecture on balancing failures :)

Another interesting one ;)

Pb(NO3)2 + Cr(MnO4)2  = Pb3O4  + Cr2O3 + MnO2 + NO

Apart from Borek's monster-equations ;) , This is one that I had to balance at school yesterday:

P + KOH + H2O ? PH3 + KH2PO4
