I have a presentation to do on Zeno's Paradoxes and their importance to mathematics, but I don't even know what those are. Does anyone know a site on mathematics I could trust besides Wikipedia or could explain it? Thanks.

Something about dividing by zero, no doubt.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Wikipedia has them right. You will be mindfucked.

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.

Zeno's Paradoxes are important because they were very early logic problems that dealt with infinite series. A particularly good one is how if a person wants to reach a destination, he/she must first reach half that distance, then half of that distance, then half that distance and so on, so they would theoretically never reach their destination for a given period of time. The fraction of their total destination that they must reach can vary with the problem, but the principle is the same. Obviously these problems have been solved in such a way as to give a finite answer to an infinte series, but there's still some thought as to whether the problems have been "truly solved".

Anyway, yeah, Wiki.
