I never saw it. Ergo, it does not exist.

Your superior logic will of course agree with this. :P

Depends. Straight up Cartesian logic supports that hypothesis. If you have not seen it, it does not exist...to you. A more realistic thought process would take into consideration the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and parallel Schrodinger's Cat - it both exists and does not exist at the same time until you open the box to find out. Or in this case, my pants. :twisted:

Personally, I reckon it's larger than life. :cool:

Ah yes, it's always tricky knowing which logical principles apply in any given situation. In this case it may be more appropriate to fall back on Aristotelian clarity: it either is or isn't. Or perhaps Plato's more basic concept: what you see is only a shadow. My favourite though is Wittgenstein's assertion that it's just words.

especially since it gets into thinktile dysfunction and gets grewsome at a time when it has to think.

Without a choice, they have been taking it with a laid-back attitude for long. Works well when taking aloan, and installments comes in trickles with no interest.
