I had forgotten about all these great little things in this comic,
I imagine shouting Zeno’s Paradox would make them pause for a second, now to remember what it is to explain it to someone.
Actually, Zeno had nine paradoxes that survived the intervening centuries. This strip references the Arrow Paradox: If everything when it occupies an equal space is at rest, and if that which is in locomotion is always occupying such a space at any moment, the flying arrow is therefore motionless.
(Many readers likely thought instead of Achilles and the Tortoise, but that would only apply if the target were still in motion. That paradox states: 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.)
