Common logical fallacy. First, you are confusing a sufficient condition with a necessary condition. This is a sufficient condition where not having the ability to read the sign does not exclude you as a train. The only information you have is that if you can read the sign, then you are obviously not a train. It is then an incorrect assumption, as there is no further information, that not reading the sign means you must be a train.

This is also a syllogistic logical fallacy:   
Socrates is man   
Men are mortal   
Therefore, Socrates is mortal   
   
If I named my dog Socrates:   
Socrates is not a man   
Men are mortal   
Therefore, Socrates is not mortal

Not sure if that's a stab that this is all simple stuff and does not make me a genius, but I would agree that this is simple, which only perplexes me how so many people do not understand it. (Also, I've never taken PHIL 101)

I'm agreeing with you, but also stating how you sound like most of the people from my class after we finished that semester.
