If I tell you that I think tail gating [sic] is equally as stupid [as] water skiing are you really going to tell me I am equating the two?
If you tell me that, then yes I'm going to tell you that you are equating the two.

Let's look at a formula:

Let A = tailgating
Let B = water skiing
Let x = degree of stupidity: since 'as stupid as';

Then:

xA = xB

simplifying the equation by dividing by x:

xA/x = xB/x
A = B

QED

• stop using that term(0+ / 0-)

You really have no clue what it means.

And you trying to teach formal logic is absurd.

Here's an actual example of false equivalence.

Marijuana and alcohol are both drugs. An ounce is about the same as three bottles. If you think one should be legal, you should think the same of the other.

Again though notice how the legality (or illegality) of one is being used to 'prove' the legality (or illegality) of the other? Notice how that is completely absent from my comment?

I'm guessing you don't because either because you truly are this inept at formal logic or because of your petty grudge. I'm not which would be more sad.

3. Here's an actual example of non-equivalence:

Marijuana and alcohol are both drugs. An ounce is about the same as three bottles. If you think one should be legal, you should think the same of the other.
Notice how the phrases 'A is B' or 'A is as ... as B' are completely absent from the statement?

I'm guessing you don't because either because you truly are this inept at formal logic or [it's] because of your petty grudge. I'm not [sure] which would be more sad.

That means you, too. You don't get to rub Clive's face in your "victory" here and then upthread whine that you are going to go the admins because JVolvo said something about it. You don't get to use this as a sword and a shield.

• oh that has nothing to do with my comment(0+ / 0-)

Clive's always been a bit of a sore loser. Generally it can be seen in his childish antics and predictable 4chanesque routine.

But nice try there CenPhx. Not good enough but still a nice try.

• Ah, this must be a duh special meaning of...(0+ / 0-)

'sore loser'. It must be from his dictionary where up is down and black is white.
