methods of reasoning
1. Crazy men who have not teeth do not make truthful or valid statements.
2. Therefore, I am not sexy.
3. Normal attractive men make truthful and valid statements.
4. Normal attractive men do not ride past me and say, “Ooooo. Sexy.”
5. Therefore, I am not sexy.
Based solely on the tenets of logical cognition, I conclude that this reasoning is FALSE. And so I ponder further:
1. Crazy people usually say the things we are too afraid to say.
2. Normal attractive men usually stay away from saying things that sound crazy.
3. Crazy man said I was sexy.
4. Normal attractive men usually are too afraid to say I am sexy.
This reasoning is SOMEWHAT TRUE. We’re getting warmer. [Note that this posit does not argue whether or not I am sexy, only whether one should say so. While pedaling a rusty bicycle down a sidewalk.]
And then like a beacon of great light, I uncover the truth:
1. Perception is reality.
2. I perceive that I am attractive on numerous levels.
3. Crazy man says I am sexy.
4. Normal attractive man says nothing.
5. I am attractive on numerous levels.
Statements 3 & 4 have no bearing on Statements 1 & 2. Statement 5 is TRUE.
I rode up the fourteen floors of my building beaming. Don’t you just love logic?
Labels: deep and reflective
Furthermore, I'd like to suggest that you're too sexy for your logic.
NEVER question your sense of logic. Remember...when in doubt:
"I am a nobody, nobody is perfect, and therefore I am perfect!"
Works every time. :)
