But that isn't the definition to anyone. If you've got to invent a whole definition in order to have your paradox, it isn't a paradox, you're just trying too hard.

The paradox isn't actually about barbers, and the barber version is generally considered to have an obvious answer. The point is to be an example.

The trick is to only make predictions semi-seriously.  That way, I don't have a 98% failure rate. I have a 98% sarcasm rate.

Well that's no Paradox either, because no, by the set up, he doesn't. If he did, if also wouldn't be a paradox, it would just mean the set-up becomes untrue by change
