One day, I was just taking a walk around the city when I saw a woman yelling, "There are mammoths living in the deepest part of the ocean!" I responded to her "No there's not." The woman got furious and countered "You have no proof that there is not mammoths living in the bottom of the ocean, so it is completely logical for me to say that there is!"(Appeal to Ignorance) Baffled by her logic, I continued on my walk through town.

As I passing by a magazine store I heard the man saying "Buy my magazine. Everyone is buying them so, so should you!" I stopped and asked the man, "So if everyone jumps off a skyscraper, so should I?" He responded, "Yes, of course!"(Appeal to Popular Opinion) I continued walking, acting as if I did not hear the man and his response.
Passing the city park, I heard a girl telling people that all people with beards are evil. I went up to her and asked her why she was telling people to shave their beards. She replied, "Osama Bin Laden had a beard so therefore all people with beards are evil."(Association Fallacy) I told her that her argument made no sense, but she ignored me, so I continued on my way
I walked into a bar to get a drink when the person I was sitting next to asked me who I thought was going to win the Super Bowl. I responded with "The Dallas Cowboys." He angrily countered, "Why should I even take your opinion? Your such a booby!"(Attacking the person) Dumbfound by his random anger burst, I got up and left the bar to look for someplace else to hangout.
I decided to walk to the fair and see if hangout there, but when I passed one of the rides some called out "Hey gray shirt." I turned around and replied, "Whats up?" He answered back, "If you don't ride this ride with me, then you must be a nerd."(False Dilemma) I ignored the kid and continued on my walk.
When I was done with my walk, I decided to hop into my hot tube to relax. When I got in the hot tube, a little kid came up to me and said "All Olympic divers get in hot tubes, therefore you must be an Olympic diver. Can I have your autograph?"(Illogical Conclusion) I answered, "I'm not an Olympic diver, so you can't have my autograph. And how did you get in my backyard?" The kid the then hastily ran away and hopped the fence.
