The Slippery Slope Fallacy

Post by linzhiyan » September 8th, 2018, 10:10 pm

I think this is called the Slippery Slope Fallacy, at least. You basically give if then statements that are vaguely related to each other.
For example:
If you go to bed late,
Then you will be tired.
If you are tired,
Then you will not do well on your test.
If you don't do well on your test...

I guess I'll start:
If you do Science Olympiad,
