Really Silly disclaimer sorry
I really should start a disclaimer that will explain some odd non-consequential fact about the chapter title or some interesting theme I’m going to write about in this chapter. Or I could go for the humor effect find something I find funny expand on it until it becomes imbecilic beyond measure then claim some common Venereal Disease as its cause. Of course I could always point you to a prior chapter because there is no doubt at some other time I was more creative or thoughtful about the disclaimer. I guess I’ll go with the odd non-consequential title. The word modality has many meanings depending on the field or discipline it is being used to describe. But for Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hoftstader it’s about logic so here is Sheldon’s definition of Logical Modality: The classification of propositions on the basis of whether they assert or deny the possibility, impossibility, contingency, or necessity of their content. Now you should think about it for a bit and hold onto it throughout the chapter tonight. In the end it will all become clear and there will be a quiz at the reunion.
