The use of the word "If" The use of the word "if" implies multiple sernerios. "If you go through that door, you will die." implies that if you DON'T go through that door, you will live. While i was making my self some soup, my dad told me "There are some rolls in the cuboard if you want them." and i could not help but wonder "so... if i DON'T want them, they wont be there? I know of course that they will be there weather i want them or not. So why did he waste words adding an "if" if there was no differnce between any of the sernerios, and shorten it to "There are some rolls in the cuboard." It's silly i know but i had to post about it.
