Me: The Perfect Solution Fallacy occurs when a solution should be rejected because some part of the problem would still exist after it were implemented. It’s an example of black or white thinking. An example of it would be when Gandalf says that Glorfindel shouldn’t be in the Fellowship because not even he could storm Mordor, so they might as well take Pippin instead.

My debate professor: look, I’m going to give you a B+ for this presentation but you need to start using examples that aren’t from the Lord of the Rings.
