Besides, I said I give up. You people have won. Why do you persist in being an ass about it
You are correct, I was being an ass.

I apologize.

I won't do it again.

Sure, no problem.

I don't even remember what discussion you are referring to, but it doesn't matter. I will retract all claims I made that I agree are erroneous.

In addition to that, since I've had a nice nap and I am feeling charitable towards my fellow earthlings, and since you asked politely, I will retract all my claims, period.

"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period."

Sorry, was not me who said that. I'm not going to lie through my teeth like that guy did. I am being totally sincere and forthcoming here.

So here's my official pronouncement: I hereby retract all my claims on this forum, whether they were erroneous or not.

And you can quote me on that whenever you feel the need. In fact, I can do even better than that.

I hereby retract all my future claims on this forum, whether they would have been erroneous or not.

Why?

Because in the bigger picture, nothing that happens on this forum matters anyway, so no skin off my nose to do that, especially if it will make you happy. And your happiness is all that matters here. Right?
Do you retract the claim that you retract all of your claims? Does it include removing everything except the set of all sets of claims?
It's "pea-can", man.

However you want to interpret it is fine with me.

If you want to twist yourself up into a Russellian Paradox, that's fine with me too.

However, there is an easy straightforward way out of your conundrum.

Whatever specific claims you asked me to retract, I retract them.

You may consider those specific claims retracted regardless how you choose to interpret other claims I may or not have made.

If further clarification is required, then please state any and all specific claims you wish me to retract and I will do so.

And yes, I get the Monty Python reference. Still not my problem.

It's nonlocal.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Now you've done it.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor.

It's no longer valid if the Xouper axiom, a lesser known part of ZFC, is retracted. Also, that means aleph naught is finite on February, April, June, September, and November.
