A length is never too long for Achilles and the tortoise to argue about whether it can be crossed without danger of being run or running over whatever is in the middle of the road not safely in the ditch where the glare of headlights blinds heroes and hares and the turtles they chase without ever harming a hair on any of their heads as they divide and divide again and conquer every distance which is not near the place where they began to argue about whether it can be or not be a question that the fruit hanging down from the branches and the water in the ditch are always out of reach.
