    Wow, that it a pretty good sized list of fallacies! For those of you that don't know (or care for that matter...lol) formal and informal fallacies are one aspect of deductive and inductive logic.

    This Just Proves That Old Saying About Why Men Need Women.

    Men Tend To Use Logic When Making Choices

    Women Tend To Make Use Of There Feeling And Emotions When Making Choices.

    So A Guy Hear A Sales Pitch From A Guy And All He Hears In All The Logical Points The Guy Makes About This "Money Making Opportunity"

    A Women Hears The Same Guys Pitch, But See How This Guy Is Holding Himself Poorly As Well As The Guys Shoes Are Drity And Scoffed, And Thinks That If This Guys Was Worth His Salt He'd Take Better Care Of Himself.

    I Wonder Who Judgment Is Better In This Situation :rolleyes:
