That's not very philosophical

Postby unseenu » Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:36 pm

The idea of this is simple,answer a deep question in the most non-philosophical way possible then post another.For example:

Starting post:Is there a point to existence?

Poster1:No
Is intelligence necessary?
Poster2:It is if you don't want to sit around doing nothing but eating and mating all day

Is mathematics discovered or invented?

And so forth.
Proof that L-Space exists in this universe

Fact 1:Heavier things distort time and space more
Fact 2:A page with ink on it is heavier than an unprinted page
Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers

Starting post:

If a tree falls in the woods and there is noone around to hear it does it make a sound?

Yes - especially if it lands on a fox's tail

Does the light in the fridge really go out when you shut the door?

Yes, because arrows are long and pointy but severely lacking in the leg department. Also a cow can jump higher than house because houses can't jump. :D

Is the cat in the box alive or dead?

No, but a heated, watched pot will eventually boil.

:roll: Yes I know what it's supposed to be. Who do you think does any sewing or mending that I need done? The point of this thread, from what I can tell, is to turn the philosophy on its head. :P

The egg came first - the first chicken was inside it. Before that, it was the chicken's ancestor that produced the mutant egg :P

If you butter bread on both sides and drop it, it will spin in mid-air indefinitely.
