    "This statement is false"

    Discuss whether this statement is true or false and explain.

    Remember, if you claim this statement is true, it would also make it false, therefore cancelling it.

    If you claim at this statement is false, it would actually be true, cancelling it out also.

    The cup is filled with liquid to the exact middle.

    Circular logic doesn't make sense. Or does it?

    You can actually say, "This statement is true and this statement is false" being equivilent to "This statement is false"
