What if you said that the Panda bear has a future as a wild animal on Earth?

Because it's doomed.

I know.

But wait, if you're not always right, then you may be wrong about being kidding about being right all the the time, meaning that you're always right, meaning that you're possibly wrong about always being right, meaning that you're possibly wrong about always being right....

I said I'm always right, not that I always tell the truth. So if I were to say that I was only kidding, it would mean that I am not always right, yet still capable of telling the truth.

Paradox solved.

But what if you traveling back into time and killed your grandfather, but then you didn't exist because your father never existed, meaning that you can't have traveled back in time to kill your grandfather....

A variable needs to move from point A to point B.

The variable moves halfway between point A and point B to point 1.

The variable then moves to halfway between point 1 and point B to point 2.

The variable then moves to halfway between point 2 and point B to point 3.

Etc.




This is the ultimate weapon.

Somebody slaps the variable and tells it to hurry the heck up and get to point B. It cries and goes to its mother at point C, who sends it to its room (point D) for being an idiot. The next day on its way to point D it is kidnapped by rouge Taco Gazelles who try to fly with it to their home world (point Z). As they begin to fly away the missile turrets at point F shoot down the ship and it crashes onto point B. The variable dies two days later at the hospital (point H).

Problem solved.

Those are all I remember...

To Wikipedia!


In a race, the quickest runner can never overtake the slowest, since
the pursuer must first reach the point whence the pursued started, so
that the slower must always hold a lead.

In the paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise, Achilles is in a footrace with the tortoise. Achilles allows the tortoise a head start
of 100 metres. If we suppose that each racer starts running at some
constant speed (one very fast and one very slow), then after some finite
time,
Achilles will have run 100 metres, bringing him to the tortoise's
starting point. During this time, the tortoise has run a much shorter
distance, say, 10 metres. It will then take Achilles some further time
to run that distance, by which time the tortoise will have advanced
farther; and then more time still to reach this third point, while the
tortoise moves ahead. Thus, whenever Achilles reaches somewhere the
tortoise has been, he still has farther to go. Therefore, because there
are an infinite number of points Achilles must reach where the tortoise
has already been, he can never overtake the tortoise.

Achilles is a moron and is just making his life more complicated. He should kill the tortoise and make stew.

Yes. Tortoise stew.

And I don't get it. He could easily pass the tortoise.

But first he has to reach the point that the Tortoise had moved before him because he's going the same direction as the Tortoise.

And since the Tortoise is moving also the points that the Tortoise has been to will infinitely increase the number of points that Achilles has to reach till he can pass the Tortoise.

No. He would catch up quite quickly, jump over the tortoise, and move on. You're making this more complicated than it is.

If I were running faster than you, and I had a significantly long enough distance to catch up to your head start, I would beat you in a race.

It's a mathematical paradox. Obviously the dude will overtake the tortoise, but the distance between them will shrink into infinity, mathematically.

Only if the runner ran at a rate somewhere around r/x + x,, with r being the runner's original speed, and x being the tortoise's speed. Which is not linear.
