wasting time

Couple of months have passed since my last post. I've been trying to self educate myself. It is good, but it is mind boggling.

This statement is false.

It means that it self ascertains it is false, possibly everything it says is true. How can it be true if it is false. So it is definitely false as well. But if it is false then it can't be true.

Based on the liar paradox, here is another one (it is not a paradox though):

I am a liar.

It means that i am a liar which is true, but it also means that I speak truth, as the sentence itself implies that I do speak truth sometimes, for instance while speaking the above sentence.

So when you say you are a liar you are speaking the truth/ or may be lying, I guess the sentence is incorrect technically.

I started reading something about management, and I ended up reading liar's paradox. I thought that I would get here if I'd be reading about lawyers. But I guess management is in the same boat.

The bottom line is that I wasted a lot of time on things that are pretty much useless. Procrastinate now.
