Great thread idea OP. Looking up examples about this subject I noticed most of the videos about specific fallacies are made in India. Maybe that's just the cookie monster feeding me free samples...This one involves a little thinking. It gives a decent explanation of syllogisms.Systematically solve any syllogism problem within a minute without using Venn diagram. This method is called Aristotle's method and it is highly effective, just like solving two mathematical equation.
Therefore you are a chicken. Isn't that something?

I like Homophones. These are words with different spellings and meanings but sound the same. Like 'soul' and 'sole'.
They're different from Homographs: which are words that are spelt the same but have different meanings. Like 'spring' which means 'to jump' or a season
Then we get to Oronyms, which is apparently a word invented by Gyles Brandreth, and quite frankly I wouldn’t put it past him. An Oronym is a sequence of words that sound the same as another, with endless comic possibilities. The brain hears speech not as individual words but as an overall flow which it has to try to interpret, and what with accents and mispronunciation and slang, it’s hardly surprising that occasionally we get it wrong.
“The stuffy nose can lead to problems.”
“The stuff he knows can lead to problems.”
Actually, by far the best example I can give of Oronyms at work is the Four Candles sketch by the Two Ronnies.

Tips for spotting trolls on the bigger forum stages...
Here's is a little guide on how to spot them as soon as possible mitigating their overall infestation period. Both complete fabrication and truths are very transparent and easy to spot. Some people love to spread lies therefore using this board and others for their own selfish agenda. We ask that you keep the following in mind when reading a new thread or post from any kind of social website.
If you feel a particular thread or post is suspect, first look at a board member's profile and see how many posts they have made thus far and how long they have been a member. This information reveals a lot. For example, if somebody is posting about something that happened on the board months or years prior then they are obviously a previously banned member. This also holds true if they make reference to a long time board member who might have a reputation for one thing or another. These are obvious "Freudian slips" which can easily reveal everything. Please report such instances immediately and they shall be dealt with immediate banning. Some of the smaller forums may take a little time in this.
If a first time or relatively new member make a series of replies to specific threads in a short period of time all with basically negative or even hateful remarks, this is an obvious troll. Please report this piece of trash as soon as possible. They won't be around that much longer and this is the only case when all posts are removed from the database.
More creative and probably the most pathetic are the ones who put up facade by establishing a misguided trust in order to gain advanced membership. Then they will engage in more clever methods of trolling posting threads designed to insight hateful debate or even political in nature. These members overall intent are both destructive and selfish in nature. This category of individual is dealt with in a rather nebulous and thoughtful manner certainly on a case by case basis. We appreciate the insight and reports received from various board members in the past and we hope you continue to help us weed these people out.
There are obvious variations of the above but this pretty much covers how to spot something that should be irradiated as quickly as possible. This is paramount in keeping all forums and chatrooms as friendly and helpful as possible. Sure we all have bad days and aren’t in the mood for certain redundancies.

I found a great thread from another site. It offers an artistic approach at creating 'enchantments'. Whether by words and phrases, images, and sound. An inspirational approach that may help others transform their own personal relationships into something more positive.
An Art form of great Quality
Choose to click or not click!
That is the question.... :chicken4:
I'll offer a bit here on Chickensomething of what I added on this interesting thread. It dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time...
Regarding the enchantments created by the medium in which I call like to call 'The Flickers'. An old term. A 'magic' word used by people long since dead when Magic lanterns became something more....
I'll try to get to more on magic words at the end of this post.
The problems and dangers of time travel. Sometimes, it's real hard getting back to the future. Ah well, I guess that's just the pro's and con's of hitch hiking. The guide on the galaxy is pretty good for that. All this led to a bit of visual psychology. You know, the hypnotism of the flickers. Symbolism of imagery combined with sounds and music. Looking at iconography and how it can be used for enchantments. Showing major contentions in the psychological injections of ideas and fantasies into our minds and ultimately our human spirit. These injections include both positive and negative stimulus.
Which ingredients for enchantments are the best kind? We could use humor as an example. Divide it in two. One side comedy, the other satire. Comedy is positive. Satire is negative.
Visuals in black and white. Silent film era...Positive and negative flickers of thought! Yeah, I know these are old flickers of enchantment, but, I think they're pretty good. Those old enchanters really knew what they were doin.
Harold Lloyd - Satire
His films seem to mock the human condition and enjoy doing it. Extreme situations of danger and personal catastrophe . Master at editing and clever camera work. Willing to do own stunts at great hazard.
Charlie Chaplin - Comedy
Comedy with etiquette and finesse. Positive in a world of suffering. The tramp should never talk. He says enough by his genius at silent lucid gesture.
Can this be a magical word of enchantment?
In those days your subtitle count was the measure of your art...
Now, I gotta ask, is this really good etiquette at the table?

We could mention some of the nefarious selling procedures practiced by the cell phone companies. Always pushing the bundles and getting people to sign contracts that lock them into cages filled with debt and more price increases along the way. These contracts only ever work one way. To benefit the seller. Nevermind the inside theft and little discrepancies appearing with bonus' for the bigger fish. Tricking proxy holders into signing extra rewards to the sycophants just for doing their jobs. Cooking for accountants 101...

Divulging the inner scandal...
Giving the Game Away
Employer policies for employees to scam customers.
How much do people really sell themselves for the paycheck? What do employers make people do to sell more product or to cut costs in keeping profits high for the shareholders? Little jobs, big jobs, does it matter. What have you done to cheat a customer on behalf of the company you work for? Have you ever done a task for your employer that went against the grain of your own moral convictions?
Whistle blowers are welcome! Tell all. Tell us about how old spoiled meat left out in the open is added to the chili and how corn starch is thrown in to add fake consistency. Feel free to anonymously vent your frustrations on dishonest business practices. All kinds and colors are welcome. Who forces politicians to sign bills and resolutions without reading them? Any corporate Vice Presidents willing to give up uncouth trade practices? Teachers! Inform the public on what makes it difficult for you to perform your calling. Fast food workers! Tell us the dirty shortcuts our favorite restaurants achieve to help maximize their profits. Any upper management people? Give it up. Tell us the wicked and profane.
What goes beyond the limit of money changing and power profiteering!
Should an employee be loyal to dishonest practices? Pushing products while spinning lies of artificial certitude? How many brokers lie, cheat, and misinform their clients to get the big sale?

Those are always good. Little sites that offer simple links to stuff. This link is nice in looking for specific task minded software...Windows Download HubsDownload Hubs help you to easily and quickly find software that performs a specific task. But here's the twist: we won't just recommend the "best apps ever" and force you to take our word for it.Instead, our editors create a list of hand picked software titles that can accomplish the task and you can make a choice based on your own criteria.
That one is really good! A task criteria driven search engine. Nice!

Suppose it symbolizes adding fuel to burn for vain glory?!
Concentrating and condensing Itself for the chosen few .. or predestined.
The extreme use of prejudice denotes an escalation in hatred beyond insanity.
A Common factor with all groups with extreme prejudicial viewing systems:
They destroy not only a whole groups of human beings, but, all traces of their books, their artwork, their knowledge...
An evil, single minded force to wipe clean all traces of existence.
Follow the trail of all that glittering silver and gold coming over from the New World.
What did it finance?
What debts did the Crown incur?
Blood and Gold The Making of Spain
To whom were these debts paid to?
Where is all that gold and silver today?

Gothic cathedrals are an excellent example of hiding in plain sight. The cathedrals, with their “spiritual architecture”, where gravity is seemingly overcome by the flying buttresses externally, and where walls through architecture seem dissolve into light to allow the visible manifestation of the power of god to penetrate the building as it penetrates the soul... These buildings seem to defy gravity, great masses of stone soaring upward, yet seemingly as light as air, giving us a psychological lift from earth-like mind to heaven-like mind.
The word “religion” stems from Latin religare , which means to tie up (ligare) once again, for the second time (re) .
On one hand, the mystery of existence and the harmony of the universe arouse in man to a natural and genuine feeling of awe, which man expresses through spontaneous prayers. On the other hand, some behaviours – rituals and ritual prayers – were codified by a group of men – the sacerdotal class. The priest is a professional figure, a ‘pontiff', an intermediary between earth and heaven. The word stems from Latin pontifex , which means pontem facere , to build a bridge.
The temporal power vested this class with the job of organizing such behaviours and to oversee the relevant performance by the laity. I will call “religiosity” the former and “religion” the latter.
We know that, during ancient times, it often happened that religion conflicted with religiosity. The religious hierarchy trying to overlay the faith, religiosity, for some purposes, which cannot be considered as spiritual. This practice is called religio instrumentum regni , religion as a means of ruling; spirituality then necessarily withdrew itself, far from danger, being content to speak to those few men who had “ears to hear” and “eyes to see”.
A proverb says that if one wishes to hide a tree, he has to put it in the wood, not in the desert, or, as Edgar Allan Poe noted in The Purloined Letter, the best place to hide something is in plain view. No wonder, therefore, that religiosity's voice can be still heard in catholic churches, especially in the Gothic ones, despite 2,000 years of religio instrumentum regni .
The Meanings of Esoteric Symbolism in Valencia Cathedral
Star of David
Mary Madonna and oval
One of the most striking images in Valencia Cathedral is the Mary Madonna stain glass window encased in an oval, the shape of an egg symbolising the birth of creation.

Five star thread OP!
The art of argumentation can be used against those who don't appreciate it's forms and structure as an art for distraction.Skillful argumentation is an antidote to productive communication. It offers a way to eliminate bickering, anger, fear, and all the trash that prevents decent control of oneself. It's both an informal and formal method of debate leading to agreement by examining claims and justification by focusing on the interaction of argument, Itself!.I'd like to think humanity has upgraded itself since Homer, Aristotle, and the countless others who began the art of conversation. Setting conditions of claims and evidence and shifting it all around with inference and warrants. The whole point of reasonable argument is to look for resolution. This only works, of course, with reasonable people. Closed minds and using physical force can obviously kill any argument, anytime!

Old as sin, these techniques of mind control! Confuse the thought process by selling fear and vice of every flavor imaginable. Virtue is a commondity beyond value! Veil it all behind a curtain of lies...
Ever hear about operation garden plot?
"The guillotine has never been used inside of the United States. The United States has executed people by firing squad, hanging, the electric chair and lethal injection. Claims that the guillotine will be used on American soil against Americans, seem ludicrous on its face. However, several dots are connecting which casts serious doubt on that assumption."

"Georgia lawmaker Doug Teper (Democrat) has proposed a bill to replace the state's electric chair with the guillotine. Teper's reasoning? It would allow for death-row inmates as organ donors, he says, since the "Blade makes a clean cut and leaves vital organs intact."
