      What's so interesting about a horse racing another horse?

      Sorry, couldn't resist.

        godot was a dns...officials waited as long as they could for him to show up

        while zeno was dqed...because his style was too paradoxical


        You're close: One would never show up; the other would never finish.

                Godot reminds me of Yifter in the Munich 5000 and Zeno, of course, is Jim Peters or Dorando Pietri. Take your pick.

                    AZ2: I'm glad this could provide a little mental stimulation during your run! For our other readers: Zeno's Paradox is a classic conceptual problem that seems to "prove" that it takes infinite time to traverse any finite distance. For example, if an arrow has to fly 100 yards, it takes x time for it to go half way, 1/2x to go the next half of the distance, 1/4x for the remaining half distance, etc. And, since there is thus no end to the distance to be traversed (1/2 of anything still leaves something) the arrow will "logically" never go the full 100 yards. This is a classic problem because it both "seems" to make logical sense, while of course flying in the face of common sense. The Zeno vs. Godot "matchup" would have worked for ANY distance or event--a recipe for absurdist frustration and futility. Somehow, however, the absurdity of the idea seemed to me most applicable to the walks.

                      Kuha, while we disagree as to the greatness of the OG's, reading some of your posts I think we would agree on a hellova lot of subjects :-)

                        Pego: I have no doubt whatsoever that you're correct. And yes, we'd have a nice healthy discussion of the OG, also...

                          Never heard of Zeno's Paradox, but similar thing I was tought (or confounded by!) in junior high wasn't that it takes an infinite amount of time, but was a "proof" that you can't ever get from point A to B because you have to travel half the distance first, then you have to travel half of what's left, ad infinitum, so you never get there!

                              Add in Ryan and Snell and you might have a pretty good race. Without a rabit I'm not sure any of them could handle Ryan of the last 400m. And I'm a huge Coe fan.
