Hate to admit, it never even occurred to me.

    OH SHI*head ‘splodes*

    Sarcastastic

    Repost. I still have this saved on my desktop from when I saw it here.

    Dead wood’s in a constant state of flux, it’s always warping, growing and shrinking.

    This paradox is fail, because he is telling the truth, his nose will grow, just not to the magical extent as it does when he lies.

    maybe not, maybe it was humid and is drying, thus the nose will shrink. you are right, it would be fail if he didnt specify now. whether or not it will grow is circumstantial.

    Or maybe Luke should keep science out of a thread about a magical fictional character.

    I didn’t even read any comments but I just did and that made me LOL pretty good on the inside.

    It would grow…

    He can not say “it’s going to grow” because he has no control over it.

    THEChris137

    i would also think that there is a difference between being wrong and lying. If it doesn’t grow, he is just wrong, not necessarily lying.

    Luke Magnifico

    Ideally, it should be

    *aside* secretly I believe that my nose will not grow, but I am going to say it will
    */aside*

    MY NOSE WILL GROW AS A DIRECT RESULT OF THIS LIE THAT I HAVE TOLD REGARDING THE GROWING OF MY NOSE

    Well, you know, the story never specified that his nose would -only- grow when he lies.

    I don’t know, all I can say is I now have the image in my head of Snow White sitting on his face yelling “Lie, you son of a bitch, lie!”
