Subject: RE: BS: Stupid riddle but can you explain it?
Mr Red, I just read the article, and it is indeed even more arrogant than I expected from your OP. People who call others stupid should make very sure to get their logic irrefutible. And even then it is usually inadequate, when used with respect to formal logic or mathematics. (My verdict "bloody fools" above aims at the arrogance, not at the slip itself.)

A similar example is a sentence attributed to George Carlin, and quoted affirmatively on Mudcat: "Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are stupider than that." Who finds the flaw? (And I do not mean the questionable comparative ...)
