persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

Most folks know the paradox proposed by Zeno, who thought his thoughts while crossing a bridge.

I have simular thoughts. When the sink is full, wash only half the dishes.

A day later, wash half the dishes. And then, later, wash half the dishes.

Zeno's view, coss half the bridge, note it, cross half the effect, you could never reach the other side of the bridge.

And then again, you will never run out of dishes to wash either.

Ahh, the trick is to was one more dish each day than you use that day. Over a period of weeks or months, the number of dishes in the sink will diminish to zero. Then of course you need to clean out the sink itself.
