Does that mean this sentence has a point or doesn't have a point?

Just wondering how many people I'll confuse.

Anyone got any other self defeating sentences?

e.g.

There is an exception to every rule; is there an exception to this rule?

18.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

If you plan is having no plan, do you have a plan?

If a liar tells the truth, would you believe it?

My imaginary friend thinks you have serious mental problems.

Ah, yes, good ol' paradox.
I went back in time and told myself not to go back in time ever, but did I listen? I can be so stubborn sometimes.

A pointed discussion Topic;
Point Taken

Ellen Degeneres certainly had one.

So did Oblio, in the movie about a little guy who was born with a round head in the Land Of Point, where every thing, even Oblio's dog, was pointed. Being an outcast (Oblio is an Aspie) he is spirited far away from his home and embarks on a quest to find his point. He hides his round head under a pointy hat and travels with his faithful dog, Arrow. (The dog had more sense than most) Oblio meets a lot of rather pointless characters who all try to be very sharp but end up being very NT(pointless).
He finally returns home and defends himself to the point that when his hat is removed it reveals that he, indeed, has a point. The other characters' head points soon wither away (even the dog, Arrow--sad). It all makes sense in the end. :)

It has been many years since I saw the movie and I think it is on DVD should anyone wish to see it. (This movie, The Point was made in 1971.)

My brain exploded trying to understand that :lol: , but I think I get it though.

The point depends on one's perspective. :D
