Inductive reasoning at its best

From my experience, I am putting forward the theory that:

It is impossible to get Ben and Jerry's Phish Food out of a tub without covering your hands or the outside of the tub in chocolatey goodness.

Why the outside of the tub? I have no idea. Empirical evidence just shows that it has always happened in the past.

Oh god…philosophy/logic overload

Being a Philosophy Student – harder than it looks

I have spent the last 8 hours (on and off) trying to come up with a 750 word answer to the question:

Explain the distinction between the validity of an argument and the truth of its conclusions, and discuss the importance of this distinction both for mathematics and for experimental science.

So far I've managed 515, with nothing resembling a decent intro. This is, quite frankly, pathetic. I think I understand the question (finally), but still not fully, and I've obviously been worrying about it far too much. I just can't think of enough things to say, so I've ended up with something dry, repetitive, and probably not very good.

Damn.

I will never be cruel to an arts student again. Honest.
