    Psychology 101: skills such as reading become automatic, which in technical terms means that they move beyond easy conscious control. In other words, it is practically impossible *not* to read something. I.e. this has nothing to do with intelligence. In fact, the higher the intelligence, the faster you are likely to read something.

    Hey Dean!

    This sentence is not true.

    Chew on that one for awhile. [​IMG]

    Brad, you mean it isn't correctly aligned? Or perhaps it's not faithful? Please define your terms more accurately.

    Hmmmmmm.... I'm not quite sure that everyone can agree on what the meaing of "is" is, but this version should clear up your question.

    This sentence is false.

    Brad, are you referring to the sentence as a self-contained entity or perhaps a legal sentence upon which you are offering commentary?
