"This week I are be mostly being bored"

Yes, its that time of year again - the "Summer" holidays. Well, they would be holidays if I wasn't holding down a full time job. The job's great though, its something to do. Its the hours of relentless boringness in between the working shifts that make the next 6 weeks so unpleasant. I can't even go abroad this year - Although a week out in California is looking like a possibilty if family pull their fingers out and return phone calls. I've even resorted to a couple of Airfix models to try and relieve the post-school boredom. Apologies for my delay, a number of things needed to be sorted out before I could find the time to update. Anyhow, the answer to last-last-last weeks teaser was as you all now know - Boo-bees.

You can imagine an arrow in flight, toward a target. For the arrow to reach the target, the arrow must first travel half of the overall distance from the starting point to the target. Next, the arrow must travel half of the remaining distance.For example, if the starting distance was 10m, the arrow first travels 5m, then 2.5m.If you extends this concept further, you can imagine the resulting distances getting smaller and smaller. Will the arrow ever reach the target?

No, i dont think it does .... this reminds me way too much of something we did in Maths, like one of those Tan graphswe did where the answer goes really really really really close to a number, but never reaches it.
Or something.

It depends on if you aim right.

If you shoot an arrow at atarget and aim right, it will hit it. if not, then it will not.

and it depends on if you shoot it far enough.

i remeber my archery days. i should get my bow out again. it kicks ass.

Yes.


It's an arrow isn't it, it's not gonna stop in mid air.

Unless it's the maths thing, in which case no.
