Logic error[edit]

Did anyone notice that there's a logic error in the agency's thinking?

Although they can safely assume that all the nice girls will love the sailor, it doesn't follow that those who are not nice will necessarily dislike sailors. Still, it's the only way the agency's computer can filter out suitable candidates without asking the ladies whether they like sailors or not.

Incidentally, I suspect that Popeye and Brutus (aka Bluto) will be disappointed that Olive is not apparently on the Raku agency's books! --PureFox (talk) 17:15, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Seem to me a major logic error would be in placing any trust in a dating agency that uses numerology to determine "compatibility". The real fallacy with the Raku entry is that women outnumber men 8-to-1. The other way around would likely be more realistic. --Thundergnat (talk) 18:47, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
In any case, I'm sure the first thing our sailors would do is send their matches a picture of their junk. (Or dhow, or schooner, or whatever vessel they were serving on.) Get your mind out of the gutter! ಠ_ಠ --Thundergnat (talk) 18:53, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
Ha, ha! Yeah, who cares about compatibility these days - show them the pics and let them choose for themselves :) --PureFox (talk) 19:03, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
