I'm sorry, Enterprise Captain, I cannot follow your reasoning.
To assume what is apparent is absolute is illogical
To assume a lack a presence must therefore mean nonexistence is a false syllogism.

If people don't like either one (I personally like them both) then might I prefer a nice game of Monopoly instead of watching TV?

OR...just watch Seinfeld...total escapism into the world of pure comic gold.

There are so many possibilities to do and even to watch on TV. As long as there are good choices, why getting angry and risking a heart attack on something you don't like and don't ever wanna watch.

If there are no standards by which to judge something then it can't be a "matter of standards." How did you come to your conclusion that South Park & Family Guy are:

I know exactly what was said. It is a merely a matter of record.
The problem is your logic.
How can I answer a question based on your inaccurate perception or flawed deductions, Captain Enterprise.

An Example of False Syllogism
If you are not present at Roll-Call, then you might as well not exist.


An Example of False Syllogism
If stars appear small in the sky then the Earth is bigger than a star.

A syllogism is a deduction based on conditional constructs.
There are logical and illogical syllogisms.

Questions based off an illogical syllogism are illogical questions.
The question is unanswerable: invalid.

Ok, folks, we don't need to get into another logic war over a couple of cartoons. Come on, back to your cages, or do I have to call in the 10,000 trained dancing llamas?
