Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Logic just got a lot harder. I received problem set #2 on Friday. When I received problem set #1, I could easily imagine solutions in my head to eight of the ten problems. In contrast, I've been wrapping my head around problem #1 of this assignment since early yesterday. Eeek! I'm quite glad that Jade and I are logic study buddies.
In related observations: what would be a good name for a supervillain who wickedly perpetuated fallacies? Leonard and I are a bit stumped. The Fallacer? Q.E. Dead?
