Facts. by johnnythemonkey on 9 August 2007 12:54pm
Are'nt they wonderful little things ? Oh how we can use them, Oh how we can abuse them. I sometimes pick one off a coat hook of a morning and share it with a friend or even just someone I meet . But am I fair to the little thing we call a fact ? Probably seldom. He is an abused creature and I fear he may some day bite my finger. I and others, often bandy about his name and claim him to be ours. He seldom is. He is ellusive, only because he is not sought in the right places. I fear to meet and face him. I think he may know me.

What is everyone's opinion on the term "true facts"?
Re: Facts. by Spursfan on 10 August 2007 6:25pm
Well, I can't think of the correct term right now, but they are two words meaning the same thing - if a thing is a fact it has to be true, so no need really for the 'true'.

Sometimes the phrase is used when the statement about to be made is, if not an out and out lie, then it is a exaggeration, shall we say.

The real 'true fact' is, that I'm going to shut up now.

In my original post title, you can substitute the word ' truths' for the word 'facts'.

It was just a general hmmm Anne. Coz this thread is really weird and there's no mention of creme eggs or Johnny Depp. I tell you wot would be good, a thread about creme eggs AND Johnny Depp!
