Storyboard Text

  • What's your time in the 400m dash, coach wanted me to ask you so he could put you in an easy race.
  • I think I can run a 50 second 400m dash. 
  • Are you sure that's your time? Have you ever actually ran the 400? That time is like world record fast. 
  • No I've never ran the 400 but I know I can run a 50 second 400m because it's obvious that I'm fast.
  • Uhhhh who are you?
  • I'm Captain Fallacy and I'm here to tell your friend over here that she just used the Self Evident Truth Fallacy. She's making claims about herself that have no factual evidence, but she continues to think it's true.
  • I...I didn't even realize I was using a fallacy, thanks Captain Fallacy!
  • Ugh you're so annoying, why'd you have to call Captain Fallacy and embarrass me like that?
  • What? How am I annoying? I didn't even call him...he just showed up.
  • I don't know you just are annoying.
  • I said I don't know!! You just are!!
  • But why? 
  • Why?
  • Oh no why's he back
  • Captain Fallacy here, you guys have to stop arguing about whether or not he's annoying because you guys are arguing in circles. You won't get anywhere with this argument because she doesn't have any factual evidence for why you're annoying. 
  • I knew we weren't getting anywhere with that argument.
