Since you are all so bad at arguing, trolling, or whatever it is you do "putzing around" with your spare 72 hours of the week, I figured I'd put together a helpful lesson on what you're all doing wrong. Enjoy!

Tu Quoque: a Latin term meaning "you also" or "you're another". A logical fallacy where one attempts to discredit another's opinion or argument by turning the argument on them. This is an example of Red Herring - whether or not the accuser is guilty of the critique, it is irrelevant to the truth of the matter.

Ad Hominem: Latin for "argument to the man". Attempt to discredit an argument by attacking the one who proposed it. A common practice of the fallacy is to accuse someone of being a hypocrite in an attempt to invalidate their argument. In other words, being a hypocrite does not make them wrong.

Straw Man: A logical fallacy that occurs when a person ignores another's actual position and instead substitues a distorted or made up version of it to attempt to prove them wrong.

The bottom line: At the end of the day, your and my opinions are worthless beyond ourselves. Their significance to others, however, is created solely by what reaction they receive. Even if I had ever claimed to be anything that people say I have ("original"), arguments against them serve no purpose other than to make fools of the accusers. You invalidate yourself and unconciously counter your own argument simply through acknowledgment. Essentially, you create a fantasy image of who you think you're speaking to, then proceed to attack it. In other words, you are arguing with yourself.

Zzzzzz...

You're a faggot.

I am not THAT bored that i'd read this

ROFLCOPTER FAIL

What you just wrote is simply too hard for most of the Newgrounds audience, I'd say around 98% can't understand a word you just said. However, this is a very nice argument.

wow shut up

ctrl v much?

BA DUM TISH!

no u

i have to agree with the sarsau guy on this one, as it has been mentioned in multiple random flashes, most of newgrounds is 13 year old teens looking for something to do, meaning that everyone of the troll faggots on this post have yet to have their balls drop, so thank you for the meaningless, but interesting post you have here, people just need to get a sense of fucking humor. or go back to school.

when are you going to male a good cartoon about video games?

God damn, that picture is over used. Ah well.

Did your formatting break or something, because the 'on newgrounds.' seems like a complete fragment.

Thats why discussions in public are absolutley useless. Face to face by a cup of tea without anyone around, thats how I like it. You and the oponent are both not afraid to loose as there will be no humiliation and so you can share opinions with proper arguments and get at least somewhat closer to a common opinion or even devise a new one through the discussion.

That expression "At the end of the day" is not in good taste.

&quot;A helpful lesson&quot; alright... so you say your &quot;devoted fans&quot; create fantasy images of who they think... Yeah, I understand what you say, but I don't agree with it... I'd say: You know whats bullshit? THIS is bullshit!
btw, ROLFMAO @ PiGPENS comment xD

Man, you forgot Ad Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc. (translated, after this therefore because of this) The simple confusion of creating a cause and effect pairing from to events that don't, in all actuality, have any relation, such as how some people believe they pass a test because of a luck rabbits foot that they wear. Just thought you could use some assistance, judging from a majority of the responses. Good luck getting your point across to these people, god knows it's an arduous task.

i respect you for this quote---v
