Logical fallacies

Speaking (somewhat) of logical fallacies, I found this site on Fallacies a while back and find it delightful. I remember there being 17 fallacies from Logic class but this goes into 42 fallacies, distinguishing between some that are lumped together in other works.

I think being able to spot fallacies is important is the ever important viral meme war that advertisers and demagogues wage on our thought processes. Being able to determine that an argument is invalid and being able to say why it is invalid is, to me, a very satisfying thing.
