Making Your Inner Nerd Happy

I found this today, and my inner nerd just about exploded with glee.

It’s part of a project called YourLogicalFallacyIs, which is hilarious. I would also say it’s very much needed in a time where we’re all pretty much barraged with media and news and advertising using these fallacies to convince us to buy/vote/agree with various points of view.

Then, I found this fantastic taxonomy of logical fallacies. If you are a teacher, or a parent, or in any way interested in learning about the fine and (nearly lost) art of debate, please, for the love of all things holy, GO TO THAT SITE. It’s awesome.

It’ll make your inner nerd explode with glee.

Love, peace, and exploding nerdiness,
Sumiko
