Because if there is a Tautology Club in Nerdfighteria, then there will be a Tautology Club in Nerdfighteria. Anyone may join, assuming you haven't already. Also: life needs to be a little more ridiculous in order to make it increasingly absurd.

I'd love to join Tautology Club because I would love to join Tautology Club :)

An interesting tautology problem for wikipedia. Randall Munroe has joked about this sort of issue before.

Mojo Jojo should definitely be a member of this group. This group is not complete without Mojo Jojo, because Mojo Jojo is the perfect addition for a group that is currently missing Mojo Jojo such as this. And if Mojo Joj is not a member of this group, then this group will remain incomplete until Mojo Jojo joins this group.

I love XKCD!!

Anyone join the "If 1,000,00 people join this group, then it will have 1,000,000 people in it" group on Facebook? There's one with the comic as the image. :D

I saw this comic yesterday (xkcd ftw), didn't even think of a real tautology club.

True, true.

well, its more of a process of circular logic, like the reference in the comic, "if 1 million people join this group, then this group will have 1 million people"

The description needs to be changed to "Because if there is a Tautology Club in Nerdfighteria, then there will be a Tautology Club in Nerdfighteria"

In initiating this group, I'd like to announce that this club is inspired by XKCD, which then prompted my creation of this group. Behold!
