    Default The Slippery Slope Story

    Has anybody read the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, or seen one of those DirectTV commercials? In both of examples, they use the 'slippery slope' fallacy to tell a story. Basically, this fallacy goes something like this.

    'If people ban porn magazines, people will start banning other forms of literature. When people start banning other forms of literature, people will become uneducated. When people become uneducated, the economy will suffer. If the economy suffers, crime will run rampant. If crime runs rampant, your children will join the Mafia. And if your children join the Mafia, your children will pop caps on you. Don't let your children pop caps on you, so leave the porn industry alone.'

    We're going to tell a story like this. The first poster will set a number of posts that the story should go on for, and then gives a prompt (If your computer breaks down, you will leave your room). Then the next poster continues off of that (If you leave your room, you trip over your little brother's Lego collection) and so on until the last poster finishes the story, gives their own story prompt and post count, and so on. This story will go for 15 posts, including this one.

    If you go to the doctor, you will be stuck in the waiting room.

    @V: Yes, you did. Glad to see the first post come in so quickly!

    When you see the error of your ways, you will probably be paralyzed with guilt and remorse, and despair utterly of ever making it up to the GitP community.

    You don't want to punch people in the groin, so don't hate the Giant in the Playground Community.

    I suggest heading each post with the number in the current story, to lower chances of a miscount.

    This one will go to 10.
