What is the smallest positive integer that cannot be defined in less than twenty-five syllables?
(In reply to re(4): Tentative solution REVISED (Paradoxes)
Sam exclaimed: "But so why haven't I seen your awsome logical powers put to use in destroying this paradox? You so enjoy vanquishing them, yet you haven't even said what the paradox is. You are keeping us all in the dark, and the suspense is killing me!"
Consider it vanquished thus:
Let K be defined as "the smallest positive integer that cannot be defined in less than twenty-five syllables". I am afraid that sentence just defined K in 24 syllables. Ergo, there is no such positive integer. Awesome logical powers, huh ?
