30 Nov 2012 : here’s one for those committed to sound reasoning and the war on error. next time you’re confronted with a fallacious argument online — and you know how bloody irritating they are — just direct the offender to the relevant link on this awesome site and state boldly — your logical fallacy is …
16 Jul 2012 : you’ve seen em. people standing quietly on the corner, wearing a bright vest and holding up a magazine. sometimes they look rough, sometimes they look scary, but they’re all just humans trying to make a hard life just a little bit easier.
