1st of April :-)

1st of April – thinking on the Liar paradox. Epimenides, a Cretan, reportedly stated:’The Cretans are always liars’ – the paradox is often considered equivalent or interchangeable with the liar paradox, but they are not the same. The liar paradox is a statement that cannot consistently be true or false, while Epimenides’ statement is simply false, as long as there exists at least one Cretan who sometimes tells the truth’. (Wikipedia)

Thanks to D. Boshnakova for above cartoon.
