━━━ Achilles and turtle
One day Achilles competes with the turtle in a foot race. Achilles is the fastest runner in the world. The turtle is very slow. Achilles will win the race. The turtle says, “If you gave me odds, I could win the race.” Achilles gives odds to the turtle because he thinks that he won’t lose. For Achilles to be handicapped, the turtle starts from the position that is nearer to a goal than Achilles.
The position is A point. The race starts. When Achilles arrives at A point, the turtle arrives at B point. When Achilles arrives at B point, the turtle arrives at C point. When Achilles arrives at C point, the turtle arrives at D point. When Achilles arrives at... Achilles can’t catch up with the turtle.
━━━ My memory
I would talk about my memory in my junior high school days. I was a member of a soft tennis club when I was a junior high school student. My club was the weakest in my area. My junior high school is a private school. So my school puts study before sports. Of course, we can't practice long enough to beat other clubs. However it was an excuse. Just about three years ago, games by junior players began. There were team and individual matches in the tennis tournament. The team competition was done as follows. One club selected three doubles pairs. In short, if two pairs of my club would win, my club would win. In the first match, first, my club's pair lost. But a miracle happened. Next, our second pair won and so did my club's last pair. So my club won for the first time. I was deeply impressed. Finally, surely, my club was the weakest. But we had a wonderful experience.
