Since we’re back in the lab writing today (Monday), these slides from our chat on Friday about making arguments more argumenty might be useful: Make Your Argument Better
THIS IS NOTHING TO DO WITH SCHOOL. BUT IT HAS TO DO WITH THE SUBJECT.
YOU’LL BE SO PROUD OF ME.
I was arguing with this really really stupid guy and he just wasn’t understanding me so I decided today to try and use as many logical fallacies as I could…
And I used 2 wrongs make a right, confusing cause/effect, relative fallacy, every appeal on our list except novelty, and then red herring.
And then he gave up.
And so I was like
“THANK MATT THOMAS YOU FINAL SHUT UP!”
and he was like wtnaughtyword.
you better laugh at this.
Brighton wrote it on a blog. on- on a blog.
You’re like a dark jedi of crappy arguing, now. You should run for some kind of political office.
And tinypic didn’t upload the pic for some reason–send it!
Your website is still on my list of bookmarked websites.
Which is really odd but I’m too lazy to take it off.
Call me stalkerish but it’s true.
Never take it off. It will always be there to feed you crappy words of wisdom, forever henceforth!
Mmmm… crappy words of wisdom taste good with ketchup.
