And the parody of Zeno's Hercules/tortoise paradox is nothing short of genius.


didn't Zeno use Achilles in his paradox? :P

Well...! All these dead Greek blokes sound the same to me. :D


And to the Greeks it was Heracles. The Romans knew him as Hercules :lol:

Oh well, that's the Romans for you. What have the Romans ever done for us?

And then, there's a documentary on a DVD for a certain show, called What has "The Romans" ever done for us? Unfortunately, there're no clips on YouTube.
