In Which Bertrand Russell Asks Out a Girl

My facebook page has been UNHACKED! So if you unfollowed me after weird stuff was posted, please refollow. I still am trying to get the name changed back but this is the page:
https://www.facebook.com/usaatodaynewss for now.
Frege: "Look Russell, it is simple. You just have to state your case with rigorous mathematical precision, and you will be sure to have success. "
Russell: "But what if she says no, Frege?"

Frege: "Think about it logically. What is the worse case scenario? That she says no and you won't get a date, which is the exact same state of the world if you don't ask her out at all."
Russell: "Hmm, i guess you are right."

Russell: "Excuse me, miss, i was wonder if...perhaps...sometime you wanted to go on a date with me?"

Woman: "No."
Rusell: "Oh, okay then."

WomanN: "One more thing though, have you ever wondered if the set of all sets that do not contain themselves contains itself or not?"

Frege: "What happened Russell? You look like you've seen a ghost! Did she reject you?"
Russell: "Frege, you might want to sit down."
So remember, the worst thing that can happen when you ask out a girl is that they could inadvertently destroy your attempt to ground mathematics in pure logic. It's probably not worth the risk.
