The Liar Paradox is a philosophical classic, and one of the best examples of a self-referential paradox. It asks the question: "If someone says 'I always lie', are they telling the truth or lying?" It's a bit like a verbal snake eating its own tail. If they're telling the truth, then they always lie, but they just said they were telling the truth, which means they lied about always lying.

But if they're lying about always lying, then they must sometimes tell the truth, which means they weren't lying about always lying. It's a mind-bending loop of logic that's enough to make your brain hurt. Maybe it's best just to avoid paradoxical statements altogether and stick to simple truths like "I like pizza."
