If there's an exception to every rule is there an exception to that rule?
The answer is in your question. If there's an exception to every rule, then every rule can have an exception. Thus all exceptions with rules are simply all rules with exceptions. In other words: Yes!
Yes, by definition of your explanation, it answers itself.
i.e. You state if there is an exception to every rule then every rule must, by your own definition, have an exception including contradicting itself.
I think you're onto something. You realize, that if you have no pattern to things, that that too is a pattern, right? Nevermind, I'm a . . ..little crazy.
An exception to the rule that all rules must have exceptions would imply that the original premise (in your question) cannot be true.
There are two lessons to be learnt here.
The first is that we (aspiring writers) need to be very careful: semantically, when using words that infer an absolute state - words like, 'all' or 'every' - we need to be sure that sentences containing these words do so logically.
The second thing to take away from this is - if you are going to make an exception to a rule then don't get caught. If you can manage this - without exception - then you should live long and prosper.
In response to the question, "If there's an exception to every rule is there an exception to that rule?" I'd say the answer is: "Oh, without exception."
A riddle! Of course there is, rules are made to be broken. I'm bad...bwahaha
Yes, but not always.
And because Hubpages doesn't understand the value of brevity, please ignore this sentence.

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:
