Quite possibly. But right now, I'm not at the boat. Over the weekend I went to a huge redneck event in PA (didn't fit in, obviously). And now I'm relaxing on vacation up here.

I can't vouch for the examples. But the descriptions are on point.

I do like how "Appeal to Novelty" is illustrated with an Apple symbol

I'm adding a new one to the list: The Hipster Fallacy. The assumption that something is not as good because it is popular or well-known, or that something is better because it is not well-known. "Dyson vacuums are all hype. The best one is this brand you've never heard of. It's hand-crafted by a monk who lives alone in a tree in Central Park."
