Is the answer to this question no?
Just go ahead and give it a try. This is meant to be a dialogue on the inherent vulnerabilities of language. Some of you know what I'm talking about, others may get pissed that I am using this forum for something as apparently mundane as this. Those in the latter group have failed to grasp the actual question. Try harder.
The answer is I don't know, or more precisely, I cannot know.
"Thit sentence is not self-referential because 'thit' is not a word"
Language is like an exoskeleton, which approximates so crudely what it's attached to, that actually words and sentences can't even approximate that actual truth of a thing - but at least language can be used to explain that language is useless "I know that I don't know"
Funny, how since forever, whole systems of thought and belief are based on the fallacy of language - billions of people though the centuries have died for the sake of a misunderstanding.... The Sanskrit idea of the Matrika Shakti, the veiling power of language...

@ED: never apologize for being right. We need more people you.
Is it possible to answer the question? Is the Pope Catholic? Does a bear poop in the woods? Do redheads have tempers? Do low scoring hubbers try to answer questions like these with mundane and rambling answers? Do they even understand the question? How many non-answers do you want to hear?
I have tried harder and it didn't work.. but I did come up with my own rendition....
" Stupid is as stupid does ".. and what is wrong with answering a question with a question ?
It is part of my genetic background...

Simple answers, which are easily understood; become quite complexed when overly scrutenised for an overextended period of time. THEN .... when we begin to reevalueate our self admitted wrong conclusions ..... Nobody can remember what...

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

Is anybody else irritated that when answering a question, you get told the answer is too short?I have tried answering a few questions, and while I am not just writing yes or no, I apparently don't have enough words. I had a 6 word answer and they wouldn't accept it. Do you think that forces a...
