    A pig.
    No, a pig.
    Nope, still a pig.
    No listen to me, it's a pig!

    And to have as many followers on Twitter, it seems.

    Anybody else picking up Arkham Origins today? I didn't even know it was out today. Think I'm going to swing over to grab a copy on my way home from school.

    I really thoroughly enjoyed the last two. More than a lot of the games I've bought in the last couple years. I've read some critic reviews this morning, and it's getting middle of the road reviews, but the major beef all those critics are bringing up is that there's not much innovation. They're just saying it's more of the same on a much larger scale. Honestly that sounds great to me. Why fix it if it's not broken?

    Exactly. The plot of this one is supposed to be the star of the show too. So basically it's the same gameplay elements that were great about the others, in the entirety of a huge Gotham City, with a great plot. Sign me up.

    The only thing that might prevent me is that I've been watching my roommate play Grand Theft and it looks incredible. I have a feeling that if I go to the game store with the intention of buying a new game, I might come home with that instead.

    I've finally finished Final Fantasy 8,over a decade after I first played it. Still surprised it took me more than 40 hours to do. Excellent game overall,glad I took the time to play it.

    Contradiction Soul. That statement itself can be wrong if something is true.

    It wouldn't be contradiction then, my statement would just become a lie. I phrased it differently to avoid such a logical fallacy.

    Or you can't counter it..

    Btw speaking of English Rules, things like "Irregardless" and "Supposably" are words, just informal..

    Also double negatives can be used correctly, such as in the case of "I am not unconvinced by his argument." In this sentence, it is implied that the speaker still has doubts, rather then what is implied by "I am convinced by his argument."

    All this talk of contradictions has made me think of a fascinating paradox. I just wondered what everyone else thinks about it:

    In the english language, there are some sentences that describe numbers and others that do not. For example, "the year of the declaration of independence of the USA" describes the number 1776, whereas "the historical significance of the declaration of independence" does not describe a number.

    With me so far? If so, I invite you to think about this sentence "the smallest number that cannot be defined by a sentence in the english language containing fewer than twenty words". We don't know what this number is of course. But here's the paradoxical part: whatever this number happens to be, we've just described it using a sentence in the english language containing only nineteen words. So we have some sort of contradicition. What do you all think about it?

    It's not a contradiction, it just means that no number can ever fall ever into it's definition.

    Now.. then..


    The average internet user apparently has an IQ of 147 and a 9 inch penis... Just amazing.

    So I'm not sure how to feel about the paradox but it's an interesting idea.

    On a nowhere near related note I made my wife a duct tape skirt and I'm pretty stoked about how it came out

    I can do it much better anyway. How about less then twelve words? The smallest positive integer not definable in fewer than twelve words.

    It however has an arguable resolution depending on how one interprets the word "definable."

    That's exactly why its a contradiction. You see, there are only a finite number of 20-word sentences in english that describes numbers. Between them, the sentences define a finite set of numbers, and it is a standard theorem in mathematics that in such circumstances there is a unique smallest number that is not in the set. So on the face of it, the sentence in question does define a number.

    Except of course, it can't.

    By the way, you've only given the modal value of IQ and penis size. Working out the mean might be a bit hard though silly

    EDIT: I just realise that, in order to be rigorous, I should've have said 'positive integer' rather than just 'number'. You understand the point i'm making at least.

    Average can be many things, not just mean. In fact, in many situations the Mode or Median is a better indicator of the "true" average rather then mean. The mean is severely affected by out-liers.


    Another question then.

    Does the set of all set that do not contain themselves, contain itself?

    Well, if it does it doesn't, and if it doesn't it does silly

    This paradox ruined the life's work of Gottlob Frege, who though he had managed to base all of maths on the logical properties of sets. This paradox shows he was sadly mistaken.

    However, I should stress that this doesn't mean set theory as a whole is wrong, it just means that one of Frege's assumptions (that for any given property, there is always a well-defined set of elements that have that property) is wrong.
