Fuck you Paradox

not mine, found.

says it will grow. but it doesnt he' s lying,.
But it grows when he lies. so he be telling the .
Hut his nose still grew while he told the truth.
It all depends on how the whole lie detection thing,
works. There will be no paradox if by lying you
mean that Pinocchio says something the he thinks
isn' t true.
So if Pinocchio thinks that his nose will grow, and
he says "My nose will grow," then it won' t, and
Pinocchio will be surprised. If he thinks his nose
won' t grow, it will. Clearly after doing this for a
while Pinocchio won' t know what to think; he' ll just
know that he' s always somehow surprised by what
happens. But there is no paradox.
On the other hand, if the nose growing mechanism
NGM) kicks in simply when Pinocchio doesn' t tell
the truth, intentionally or not, then we have a
situation. I think in order to answer this question I' ll
have to fall back on Godel' s incompleteness
theorem and say that such an NGM cannot exist.
For one thing, if Pinocchio' s worked in this
way, he' d be totally omniscient. For example, he
could say "the stock market will go up tomorrow"
and know if his statement is true by whether or not
his nose grows. So here you get into a bench of
time travel paradoxes in addition to the original
Still, lets assume that this exists. Also, for the
sake of argument, let' s assume that nose grows
Pinocchio lied in addition to Pinocchio lies nose
grows. Consider what would happen if Pinocchio
made this proclamation:
Either my nose will grow or I will become a real
The only way for this statement to not cause a
paradox is for Pinocchio to become a real boy, So
if somehow the miiverse does whatever it can to
avoid paradoxes, it will turn Pinocchio into a real
Point of fact: Pinocchio is

He said "My nose will grow." Which means at some point it will eventually grow. It does not have to be on the spot.

This is like the people that still try to find new things about the Titanic sinking, it's pointless and really stupid to do. Because honestly, in his attempt to look smart I see an idiot. Mainly because he is trying to break apart a simple paradox example...about a make believe talking puppet...in a world of magic.

See where I'm going with this?

"Godel's incompleteness"

Hold on, OP, I haven't gotten to that level of Hogwart's yet.

Pinocchio's nose grows if he tells a lie.
HOWEVER, it doesn't say that it DOESN'T grow if he tells the truth.
-> So pinocchio says his nose will grow.
-> He's telling the truth
-> For some random reason (wood expansion with heat?) his nose grows.

There is no paradox.
