Your favorite nonsensical logic

A statement a joke a tautology anything having to do with logic that makes absolutely no sense. Or makes particularly good nonsense. I'm legitimately interested.

Stuff that comes to mind are superstitions I’ve held onto all of my life.

If a black cat walks in front of me, I can’t help but wonder if I’ll have bad luck for the rest of the day.
And next Friday, is Friday the 13th…and I’ve been thinking about it already. :eek:

So stuff like that, that is really stupid and nonsensical, but somehow…at the time…it seems logical to think that way.

Don't judge me, you asked. ;)
 
Well if your not harming anyone.

I am sure all the sports people you look upto have superstitions, or at least most of them, and probably the biggest named ones.
 
“The rule is, jam tomorrow and jam yesterday-but never jam today."

"It must come sometime to jam today," Alice objected

"No it can't," said the Queen. "It's jam every other day. Today isn't any other day, you know”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
 
So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan: Fairy Tales

I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? ~John Lennon

When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl. ~James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan
 
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Be extra careful, everyone. (it's not that nonsensical to me) ;)
 
There must be life after death. Otherwise the universe would be too sad.
Actually, a spirit world is perfectly logical. Only certain kinds of universes, with certain kinds of laws of physics, are stable. Otherwise, they collapse again. But stability relative to what? To themselves and to other coexisting universes. Spirit worlds and adjacent universes can only exist if they can coexist, harmoniously, with this universe. If such a universe can exist, then it must exist.

If universes can just pop into existence as quantum fluctuations, then shouldn't there exist a large set of universes that are less stable then our universes, but can exist briefly, until they are contradicted by our universe? At which time they collapse back into non-existence?
 
Book are knowledge
Knowledge is power
Power is energy
Energy is equivalent to mass
Mass bends time and space.
Which is why whenever you pop into a bookstore for a couple of minutes, you walk out an hour later. ~Terry Pratchett
 
my dad had a good one a long time ago, we were in Florida and traffic was passing us by because my mom didn't want to go over the speed limit, my dad stated, if everyone keeps passing us we'll end up back where we started.
 
Ha Ha!

That is a great one! So true.

"universe that springs into existence" i.e. a universe that already sitting atop of a coiled/contracted spring waiting to be launched.

"pop" into existence is better word i.e. occupied space( universe ) pops/bursts/explodes into existence out of a true, non-occupied space of true nothingness.

Perhaps it was logical for early humans to believe that the Earth extended forever/infinitly, or later on believe same for our solar system, the galaxey, then cluster galaxies, then Universe as a whole, extending forever/infinitely in space, because we that is what we keep observing, just a further and further extension of somethingness, based on human experiences to date.

Maybe if when a human is in a plane and the plane is falling to Earth, if they just jump higher into the air before the plane crashes, they would land ok. That to is probably true, provided they had enough energy to propel them higher at just the correct time.

That which cannot be defined is not nonexistent but, rather, imperceptible.
Oh, sorry... that actually makes sense... but that also means there is no such thing as "nonsense".
