Inspired by various reactions to the quote in my sig in the latest comic discussion thread. This one's simple: I'll state something obviously true, then TPBM will disagree and state an alternate belief. Then they state another obvious truth, then TPBT disagrees and states their alternate belief, and so on and forth to however large this thread is gonna get. (Obviously, the reason doesn't have to be serious--in fact, it preferably wouldn't be. In fact, make the reason as silly as possible, the only limit is your imagination!) Well, here we go...

Lheticus

As the maker of the rules, I'm going to say this one doesn't count because I want to give someone else a chance, but I need to say this and Jormengand's PM box is full...

NONSENSE! What you failed to realize is that saying that saying the moon is made of cheese falls into my trap was a setup for an even more elaborate trap to get someone to say something OTHER than that! And...you didn't fall for it, curses!

In nature, the nucleus of an atom of hydrogen is made up of one proton and up to two neutrons.

@V Read again. I said "up to" two neutrons, meaning the quantity of neutrons is either zero, one or two. Protium, Deuterium or Tritium.

Laughing Dog

Actually, that's (IIRC) deuterium, a specific rare type of hydrogen. Normal hydrogen's nucleus is just a proton.

Hitler was a terrible, terrible person.

ORione
2014-07-25, 11:59 AM
Well, to evaluate the quality of something, we need to look at its function and see how well it fulfills it. Like, you would say that a knife that could not cut was a terrible knife. The human body seems to be geared towards survival, so I am going to assume that that is the function of a person. Adolf Hitler survived until he was 56*. That is better than a lot of people do, so I would say that Hitler was at least okay at being a person.

*Thank you for making me Google "how old was hitler when he died".

Something that is completely red is not completely blue.

@V It's still not completely blue.

Targ Collective

Completely untrue, for a very good reason - if you shine a bright enough red light through a blue lens, some blue light will shine through. This proves red has at least *some* blue in it.

You, TPBM, fall somewhere between the spectrum of agreeing and disagreeing with this statement. (Or at the absolute poles.) (Or, in case I'm dealing with really smart people here, some mixture of the two).

You know, hang it. Let's make this simple. You, TPBM, fall within the spectrum of agreement/disagreement in this statement (and yes, indifference is in the spectrum - exact centre).

V I *knew* there would be someone smart enough to escape my trap. Well done. You have passed the test.

Hexalan
2014-07-27, 12:14 AM
I do not agree nor disagree with the previous statement. My stance is completely neutral, not neutral in the way that I am in balance, but rather, in the way that skew lines are non-present relative to each other. My belief towards the veracity of the previous statement is a complete non-entity, as there is precisely zero interpretation, which results in zero perceived-affirmation as well as zero perceived-refutation.

That which is, is.

Haruki-kun
2014-07-28, 11:50 PM
I disagree. In mathematics, the square root of a negative number can be expressed as the number x times i, where i is equal to the square root of -1. If we're simply talking about the square root of -1, then we just express the number as i. These numbers are referred to as "imaginary" as they are not within the realm of real numbers, but they can still be expressed in mathematical equations.

Due to the Reflexive property (a = a), we can assume that i=i, which means that that which is, is. Except that i is an imaginary number and by default is not real. So in this situation, that which is, is, except that in reality... it isn't.

I am flagrantly, blatantly breaking the Three Post Rule. Intentionally. I apologise, but what I have to add will hopefully be worth it.

I disagree. Twix would be lesser without the wrapper of chocolate.

i numbers merely express mathematics through lying there's a number there. In other words, they are *creativity's* numbers. Non-i numbers are TRUTH NUMBERS.

Why not have number indices for all number permutations? We can have numbers for strength, beauty, rapture, fulfilment... The possibilities are endless!

KuReshtin

I disagree - the possibilities are limited to the imagination of the person thinking of all the categories, and as they will run out of categories at some stage, the possibilities are, in fact, not endless.

Zaydos

I disagree. A thing can be partially water without being wet (example a human), it is only excess water which makes things wet. Therefore water, which cannot have excess water, is not wet.

The concept of cold really refers to the absence of heat.

ORione
2014-08-14, 07:23 PM
The concept of coldness was imagined before anyone knew that cold was the absence of heat. That coldness happens to apply when and only when there is no heat is a coincidence. The concept of coldness really refers to the sensation of coldness, which just so happens to be caused by an absence of heat. Much like how if the formula for the substance that the ocean is filled with were not H2O, then it would not be the case that water is H2O.

Adding salt to a meal makes it taste saltier.

Adding salt to a meal simply makes it have a greater amount of salt.

The meal itself, of course, lacks nerve endings and tastes nothing.

I find it entirely unlikely that you sat down at your computer simply to type that message. No, we can be almost certain that you intended to check this site and only incidentally ended up responding to this thread. Therefore, we can reasonably conclude that the transmission of said message was not the reason for your sitting in the specified location.

How do I know that you didn't misspell it?

I'm pretty sure cats are in the class "cute, soft, furry critters".

Since wetness is the state of being saturated or covered in water, water itself cannot be wet.
