You liar!...So I had my last mid-term exam today.
Suprisingly that exam took me by suprise. The oh-my-gosh-that-test-just-jumped-out-of-the-bush-and-totally-screamed-and-assaulted-me-and-left-me-groping-on-the-ground-broken-and-scared-kind-of-suprsise.
Of course, for those people who literally imagined a piece of exam paper, jumping and screaming in an attempt to leave helpless on the floor, I only have two words to say to you.
Oops. Wrong two words. I was thinking of a vampire movie that I watched recently.
What I meant was,
Or maybe even.
Or how about,
"Please I was just describing what I felt and to take that sentence seriously makes you so ignorant of exam papers. Exam papers don't assault you, they just leave you braindead for a couple of days until a couple of days till it's over."
Except, that took more than two words.
Anyway, as I have obviously slipped way far away from the main topic that I was talking about, I have to force myself to come back to the topic from which I began this rant of complete randomness.
Last mid-term exam.
Caught by suprise.
Felt helpless similar to the feeling of being robbed and left broken on the floor.
"Similar" means like and not literal.
[Readers: We're not stupid.]
That's what the computer exam felt like.
Ha! See the irony of this situtation?
To get rid of the feeling of anger and annoyance and helpless-ness due to a computer exam, I turn to the refuge that is the computer.
The subject of the exam in the first place.
Life is unfair.
Ah, but God is good.
Now let's talk about a completely different topic.
"Everything I tell you is a lie."
A sentence that was once used by Mister Spock in Star Trek (Episode name: "I, Mudd") to completely overload the circuits on some androids.
Ask any Star Trek enthusiast.
That's what happened.
It's confusing isn't it.
"Everything I tell you is a lie" is a statement and is therefore a lie and therefore since it is a lie, everything I actually tell you is a the truth, and therfore that statement "Everything I tell you is a lie" is a truth... and therefore a lie and since it is a lie, everything I tell you is a truth and therefore that statement is a truth...
And do you see how this can completely confuse any normal thinking person?
It's a wicked and twisted cycle.
A sentence like that is called a self-refuting sentence or the Liar's Paradox
