"Slow and stead wins the race, sonny."

Hypothesis still not yet proven.

A long time ago, in ancient Greece, lived a fella by the name of Zeno. He's famous for his paradoxes. He was a bit of a philosopher. Some of his paradoxes still hold to this very day and most have been reduced to mathematical problems. When you get into higher mathematics, this is the stupid stuff you'll be expected to spend time thinking about.

One of them is about Achilles and the Tortoise.

The two of 'em have a race and because Achilles is faster, the tortoise gets a head start. Now, in each unit of time, Achilles is able to catch up halfway. So, by one unit of time, the tortoise is 100 units away. The second unit of time finds Achilles 50 units away. The third unit of time finds Achilles 25 units away. On and on it goes. 1/2 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32 ...

So, Achilles can never actually pass the tortoise because the mathematical units get smaller and smaller.

This is, of course, absurd and time doesn't work like that - but it's still a great logical puzzle and we still ponder it from time to time in academia. You can read more about Zeno at Wikipedia:

I graduate the fifth grade and was tops in my class.

No more schooling needed.

At least he finished!

Yup! He did better than every single one of us on Voat. He even did better than me - and I'm perfect in every way!
