This Statement is Pointless--

"This Statement is False" is practically under the dictionary definition for "paradox."

Is "This statement is untrue" a paradox? If Untrue completely equals "false", then yes, it's a paradox. If "Untrue" means "does not partake of the quality of truth", then it doesn't seem like it would be a paradox, because a statement that contradicts itself does not have the quality of truth.

Gods, I'm bored.
