    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Either more things change or more things stay the same. It cannot be both.
    Technically, everything changes but whatever.

    Yes. In the com-position of a sentence you should not do so.

    Some palendrome (the same backwards as forwards): God's dog, race car.

    logical fallacy - a fallacy which is logical. Ridiculous.

    logic fallacy - a fallacy of logic. Makes more sense except every fallacy is a fallacy of logic.

    Why can't people simply say fallacy.

    It's a fallacy to claim that London is in France, but there's nothing illogical about the idea that London could be in France.

    I would simply call it ignorance that London is in France.

    There is nothing logical or illogical about the idea that London is in France, it is plain and simple incorrect statement.

    Yes, false statements can also be categorised as fallacy but it is generally associated with faulty reasoning.

    My dictionary defines "fallacy" as "A misconception resulting from incorrect reasoning", so maybe a fallacy is technically a failure of logic after all. Reasoning is supposed to be logical, I suppose.

    London is a small agricultural village in Burgundy, France, 80 kilometres (50 mi) south of Dijon, found on the Saône-et-Loire D206 road.
    Its brief claim to fame was its part in an ambush marketing campaign by the bookmaker Paddy Power in 2012. Prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England, the company sponsored an egg-and-spoon race in the Burgundy village, and then placed large posters in Britain claiming that they were "The official sponsor of the largest athletics event in London this year!", adding beneath "Ahem, London France that is". While the Games' organising committee threatened legal action against Paddy Power for breaching special laws restricting unauthorized "associations" with the Olympics, it backtracked after Paddy Power threatened to take the organizers to court.
