    Why have you put the apostrophe between s and t, when there are no letters there you're missing out?

    Maybe the space between 'is' and 'true' counts as a letter? :hmmmm2: Plus 'strue looks silly.

    Nah, it doesn't. That's why 'tis is 'tis, not t'is, which looks silly.

    'Strue is correct.

    'strue looks silly, because it looks like one word

    s'true emphasises that it's two words

    But the whole point is that you're sliding them together to become one. Otherwise why not use " 's true."

    'strue looks silly, it looks like you're trying to say 'strudel' but you can't.

    's true would also work. but that's more effort.

    But strudels are not remotely silly. :hmmm:

    It's about a millisecond more effort.

    Tasty = not silly.
    Strudels = tasty.

    Therefore...

    strudels = not silly. :proud:

    And you spend many milliseconds typing in smiley codes!

    therefore

    strudels = silly

    tasty = not silly
    strudels = not tasty

    Your argument falls down here. While all things that are tasty may not be silly you have assumed that all things that are not tasty are silly. A classic demise for many a crap philosopher. It's the old "not-black-raven" scenario.

    You need a premise that says that not tasty = silly. Foooool.

    And apostrophes form a vital part of mine.

    No it isn't. My computer is not tasty. Yet is it not silly.

    Then don't use them.

    I have tasted it. Eating and tasting are not the same thing.

    Oh, oh? You corrected Dipak in the box the other day. So no 'like you' here please?
