Quote of the Day
Proof that AUT is NOT a University:
Let us assume AUT is a University.
2150km from AUT in Port Douglas, Queensland, there are many crocodiles.
Crocodiles are wider than they are green:
Let's look at the crocodile. It is wide on the top and on the bottom, but it is green only on the top. Therefore, the crocodile is wider than it is green.
Crocodiles are greener than they are long:
Let's look at the crocodile. It is green along its length and width, but it is long only along its length. Therefore, the crocodile is greener than it is long.
Since crocodiles are wider than they are green, and greener than they are long, it follows that a crocodile must be wider than it is long.
Experimental evidence contradicts this proof.
As this proof has been contradicted, the initial assumption must be false.
Therefore AUT is not a University.
