If-Then

IF Squartops and their inherent counterweight are the best/most coveted oars THEN counter balanced oars are superior to non balanced.

But which method do you use to drain your cooler when you use squaretops? Drain all at once or just leave the drain plug slightly loose so the water drains as it melts?

And do you use your squaretops with pins and clips, open oarlocks, or oar-rights?

There's a lot riding on this, God help us if we can't figure out the exactly perfect best way to get out and enjoy ourselves on the water....

You are not wrong, but...

This statement fails to adequately apply the rules of deductive reasoning since the two categorical propositions assume a non-satisfactory conjunction and are conditional on both the major and minor premises sharing universal affirmatives that are mutually consistent and stationary, otherwise non-present as the argument is posed.

Because of the statement's non-contextuality (i.e. for a non boater) it fails to completely provide direct proof, contrapositive proof, or proof by contradiction.

You need to throw in an additional conjunction corresponding with a particular affirmative to completely satisfy logical transversality conditions.

Your conclusion is correct (in my opinion) even if it uses incomplete syllogistic logic.

Baby Yoda loves Squaretops, and will use nothing but Sawyer products.

First off SquareTops aren't counterbalanced. Second if you bought some you wouldn't have a cooler becaue you couldn't afford one after paying up the ass for those oars. Third, baby yoda is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.

Burn, burn, burn.


Why do squartops burn?
Cause there made of wood.
And how do we tell if they are made of wood?
Build a bridge out of them?
But couldnt you also build a bridge out of carlisles and cataracts? Does wood sink in water?
Nope, it floats.
What else floats in water?
Lead, really small rocks....A DUCK
So if the oars weigh the same as a duck then they are made of wood
And therefore?
A square top.

IF square tops and counter balanced oars weigh more than non-counter balanced oars of the same length, THEN counter balanced/square tops are less fun to portage or hike in to those hard to reach places

Squaretops are coveted because they look pretty. The best whitewater oar are the Sawyer MX-GS with Dynelite blades.
