    Oh yeah fallacies ... mental laziness leads to them. I hate that. I mostly avoid to express serious opinions IRL. It's not cowardice, it's ad nauseam .. seriously, when it's a matter of courage .. I can't forgive. Can't win over denial but often considering to cement some useless traps.

    All the time. Usually it is not "fake" logic per se, I just start with a ridiculous premise, or make up really weird links.

    One of my favorites is linking every possible action I can to genocide or nuclear war. The best one I have come up with so far is that saying things are true leads to genocide.

    I have too grave an opinion of logic to add any extra injury to the comprehension of it at large.

    Never done it on purpose. I can, however, be really sure of something and defend it with a passion, even if it's totally wrong.
    "You're being unlogical" shuts me up for a long enough time to make your point. But then you've got to point out my logical mistake.

    Really? That would just make me more convinced of my logicality, if the person saying that did not even know the opposite of logical is illogical, not unlogical.

    I don't make things up, some people call it stretching what is. I like to think of it as broadening everyone's horizons.
    Under what circumstances...almost any, but most definitely when I have higher knowledge in the area I'm speaking of. If I don't hold the higher knowledge, then I tie the conversation to something else that I do know more than the other person about. I'll throw in some big words here, some concepts there, and usually link it to something completely illogical so my thoughts are the lesser of the evils.
    What is normal to one, is incomprehensible to another.

    ALL anger in this world stems from a lack of control.


    All of reality bows to the illusion of life and death.
