Did Somebody Ask a Question?
« on: March 10, 2007, 01:08:51 AM »
Okay. I bring you exhibit one:
DID SOMEBODY SAY TROLLS?!

Notice. She asked if anybody said trolls. It can be presumed that she meant somebody in the thread, not somebody in the entire world, because this would be simply impractical. Surely, someone somewhere said trolls--you can be almost assured of that. Nonetheless, it's obviously that somebody DID say trolls at one time or another. But that's not what we're talking about, because, as stated, that would be so horribly not pragmatic.

So, for a more locationalized basis: If we zoom into the thread alone. Nobody had said trolls before in the thread (technically nobody SAID anything, but you know what I mean). However, there it's apparent that Vauxhall had said "trolls" (the word she was asking for) in the very question that she's asking it. So. What makes a question? Obviously, she said "DID somebody say trolls," and thus asking about passed things that had happened, otherwise she would have said "WILL somebody say trolls." Thus, "trolls" must be said before she asked the question. However, she herself said "trolls" IN the question in question (heheh). Note that the question mark is AFTER the word "trolls." So does that mean that somebody (herself) SAY trolls before the question was asked or was it said after the question was asked because it's part of the question itself?

What do you think? Did somebody say trolls?(!)

P.S. I refute all responsibility for creating this thread tomorrow when I'm actually well-rested.

Yeah someone said trolls but they said it really really quietly so only Vaux heard.

How would you define a troll anyway? Cos someone here called me a troll. Was quite proud of that.

Fucking liar...You see, it's all an illusion. Because obviously, my logic is impenetrable--infallible to the furthest extent.

This is one of those trials were the defendant isn't allowed to defend herself. So stop defending yourself!

Yes. Actually, I went into the future in order to get you consent, and then came back into this time, just to confuse you. I do that sometimes, just for fun. But don't worry, you'll be consenting pretty soon.

Hey, can I get your consent to use a quote of yours in an Alternative Science thread?

Oh, I guess. I've got better ones!!

See? I told you so.


As a sidenote I am also reserving the right to hold this thread as proof that my time machine exists.

Hey, it's what I do? I'm dangerous...You know, some people call me a badass...but really...Okay, yeah, I'm totally a badass.

Anyways, further discussion will take place in this thread based on the fact that I own a time machine via the proof that I have given in this thread (what with my predictions of what will happen and such).

I think you confused time machines with a quick wit. Still that was awesome.
