Know your logical fallacies

How many times have you heard some loud mouth know-it-all spouting off once again about this, that or the other thing and it all sounds just so illogical? Have you ever wondered about how logicians classify those logical mistakes? Visit for a cool list and explanation of logical fallacies. You can also download a very large printable version of this terrific chart. Put in on your bathroom wall for the benefit of your significant other. ;-)

About Mike
A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water. Visit for one of my favorite views of the isthmus. Or, why not come visit us!
