    Irrefutable

    New game idea. Lets see if it's any fun. Post an irrefutably true fact that's supported by bad-evidence that can still "prove" the true fact. Confused? I'll kick it off.

    I toasted the sandwich I brought for lunch. Heating it up improved the sandwich ten-fold. However, I've been sitting directly in front of the space-heater all morning. I have not improved at all.

    Fact: I am not a sandwich.

    evidence:
    when I grate cheese or carrots the volume expands five fold. If I plane wood I get a huge pile of shaving much bigger than the start piece. If I spill cornflakes on the floor they cover a far greater area than when in the box.
    therefore:
    Fact
    Stuff is mostly expanding space .

    1. There is an exception to every rule.
    2. Statement #1 is a rule.
    3. Therefore, there is at least one rule with no exception.
    4. Statement #4 is a rule.
    5. Therefore...um...what?

    1. Every dog has his day.
    2. My dog was born on 11/16/2004, 2704 days ago.
    3. 2704 puppies are waiting in limbo for a day that will never come.

    My son wanted to come inside the house, but the door was locked. He hit the glass with his hand as hard as a 9-year old can, which resulted in a very sore hand and a very unaffected door. Some crying might have been involved, but don't let him know I told you.

    Fact: My son's fist is not a hammer.

    Firstly, we know that earth's surface is not perfectly smooth, and that every imperfect surface is plane to some degree, or concave to some degree, or else convex to some degree. Since it has degrees the earth's surface has temperature, and because of this we know that the sun must be radiating energy to warm the earth.

    Secondly if the sun were not warming the earth, then it wouldn't matter to us whether it was plane, concave or convex as we would all be frozen. It does matter to us though, and thus it is doubly and plainly proven that the sun does warm the earth.

    So we're supposed to reach conclusions that are correct, using arguments that are wrong? Most of the debunking in the ATM and conspiracy theory fora falls into that category.

    Anyway, since the last poster did not leave a fact:

    Fact: the earth is not completely covered with ice.

    Why fire engines are red:

    2+2 = 4
    4 x 3 = 12
    There are twelve inches in a ruler
    Queen Elizabeth is a ruler
    But Queen Elizabeth is also a ship
    Ships sail on the sea
    The sea has fish
    Fish have fins
    The Finns fought the Russians

    And that's why fire engines are red, because they are always Russian around.

    Good attempt but I sense there must be some error in that logic. If fire engines were truly red then they wouldn't need red paint would they?

    Snake bites can be fatal.
    Fatal as in die.
    When you die, you get buried.
    When buried, flesh decomposes.
    Decomposing materials makes great fertilisers.
    Fertilisers make plants grow healthier and greener.
    Plants gives off oxygen which we need to breathe and live.

    Fact: Snake bites are responsible for oxygen.
