To Know You're Mistaken

I'm reading Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations II on the Metro, and I gotta say, the guy makes me laugh out loud sometimes:
If there were a verb meaning "to believe falsely," it would not have any significant first person present indicative.

Funny, all the other forms would be valid.

You gotta love that.
