Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

Max, there's no way I can word a response using the word "cheese" that won't end up in the Dungeon.

Logical fallacies are misguided responses used by people to "win" arguments... only those who have to resort to such tactics in order to win rarely seem to realize they're making fools of themselves.

Logic is only important to people who want to win an argument. Some people have a pathological need to win every conversation they get into. What is worse, they think they win if they can say something so totally stupid that you can't think of a comeback.
