whistleridge: Pud: So, have you finally stopped beating your wife, or are you still in denial of it?

Why do you keep talking about such meaningless topics when children are starving to death in Burma? Do you hate the Burmese, or do you just hate children? WHY DO YOU HATE CHILDREN?


C'mon, let's find some middle ground? Can we agree that Pud only hates some children, and whistleridge has stopped beating his wife?

rohar: Turns out there was a bug in the math that would cause a memory leak if the pipes weren't adjusted a couple pixles off every so often, so that explained the damned teapot. I was thrilled! I called the customer back and explained it. The response was "ok, so why a teapot?".


To catch the drip from the leaky pipes? A teapot seems entirely logical....

I'd like to have that UFO teapot, but ironically, I don't have the space.

Typical list of common fallacies.

One of my favorite terms that I don't see used often is "fractal wrongness" where in a person is not only wrong in the big picture, but wrong on every level of detail.

xria: Of course (slightly related to the fallacy fallacy), it must be noted that conspicuously pointing out other peoples fallacies during a rational argument is one of the surest ways of ensuring the end of any rational argument.

Not to say it isn't good to know them and recognize them (in your own arguments as well as others), but it works better to be more subtle that posting a generic fallacy png or equivalent.

Any article in the politics tab would make a fascinating study.
