Books, not bullets.

Philosophy 148. Round two.

From A Concise Introduction to Logic 10th ed:

"...When the word 'cause' is used in ordinary English, however, it is seriously affected by ambiguity...To clear up this ambiguity affecting the meaning of 'cause,' adopting the language of sufficient and necessary conditions is useful. When we say that electrocution is a cause of death, we mean 'cause' in the sense of sufficient condition. Electrocution is sufficient to produce death, but there are other methods equally effective, such as poisoning, drowning, and shooting."

Sometimes, School, I think I might just love you.

Another One for the Captain's Log

Sorry I haven't updated this blog in a month. (I'm not sure who that apology is supposed to be addressed to. Maybe God?)

Listen, it's not like I'm reporting the news, people.

I hope it comforts you to know that the reason I haven't kept up is because I've been REALLY busy. My life is so crazy right now you guys. It's like a whirlwind of activity.

For example, I spent the majority of my Friday afternoon sitting in my kitchen eating string cheese, and trying to French braid my own hair while watching Netflix from my computer.


To end, some quotes from a favorite show of mine:

Caller: "I never have any money to take a girl out."
Lily: "Well you could always go Dutch."
Ray: "Pff, I'd rather go French."
