    The following statement is false. The previous statement is true.

    Hope that there are no cyborgs/robots that are going to read this and overload. If there are, then in advance, I'm sorry.

    Truth is subjective to change.

    Well, nothing in particular, other than can any sense be made out of it?

    I think i made some sense of it, but it requires odd logic.

    But are ducks relevant to a paradox or is the following sentence false... What if the last sentence is true?

    You're only playing with baby paradoxes. It's up to the cool kids like me to play with the temporal paradoxes.

    I'm always wrong.

    It's opposite day.


    temporal paradoxs?
    Time loops are more fun, you can do whatever the heck you want and nobody will remember a thing.

    By the time you've read the second statement, the first one has become false.

    The truth value of statements can change over time.

    That's not a paradox, just a time sensitive modifier. :unsure:

    Its not a paradox. You flipped it. If it read "The following statement is true. The previous statement is false." Then we'd have a problem. But I think a similar problem to this was solved on a Yu-Gi-Oh episode back in the day.

    EDIT: Wiki article on this kind of stuff: Here




    Also does anyone know how to actually solve this kind of stuff? :O

    EDIT2: Sorry I am such a Slowpoke my brain just exploded from OP's post. Srsly how do you solve this shit?

    "The following statement is true. The previous statement is false."

    This doesn't make sense to me....

    Think about it... :unsure:



    True/false vice versa.
