Saying "my nose will grow" is not a lie, he has no knowledge of the future whether his nose grows or not, so it's an assumption based on him knowing that he will eventually lie in life causing his nose to grow. NOT a paradox.

you forgot the other rule. Paradoxs make his nose catch on fire.

He's made a statement he believes is true. His nose will grow only when he is knowingly telling a lie. All that will be proven is *insert internet brawl inducing statement here*.

For some reason I see his nose coming to life and beating the crap out of the blue fairy

He's making a prediction, not a statement. So, if hes right, hes just lucky, if hes wrong he's not lying, he's just wrong.

So, THERE IS NO PARADOX.

"hese "smart" Americans needs this hard paradox to be explained in the same way we explain it for elementary school children here in Sweden."

Apparently I've learned that trolls can come from Sweden as well...

Nothing about the statement, "My nose will grow," says it won't grow when he tells the truth. "If A then B" doesn't necessarily mean "If not A then not B" A common logical fallacy.

"It's called "Epimenides paradox", not the goddamn Pinocchio paradox."

But there's alliteration with this one...

it looks as if he has something growing out his pants


That reminds me of a couple of jokes my father told me as a child. For brevity's sake, I will only give the punchlines.

1. Tell the truth! Tell a lie! Tell the truth! Tell a lie.

2. Who needs girls? I've got sandpaper.

"not really, he said it and it was a lie, so his nose will grow and then it becomes true so it will shrink back down. truths and lies are not a constant, they can change easily."

hahahaha there ya go.

His nose only technically grows under stress, so if he did it calmly enough... It'd be pretty hard keeping him calm, though, knowing that even a hint of worry might rip open a black hole.

I was told that when I was a kid and have been sharing it ever since actually. I think it's pretty funny.
