Zeno's Diet

  [vote for,

The latest miracle fad celebrity-endorsed diet. By eating things in fractions of 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, etc., you will slow down your consumption, eat less, and lose weight.

       I've been a bit less successful with this. For breakfast I had a whole wild boar, for lunch I had half a boar. At supper I'll have a quarter, because I'm still a little peckish, but I could probably survive on an eighth.   

       Tommorrow I'll try it on the wheelbarrow load of surströming Unhygienix brought from the trip to Gotland, but I don't think even I'm going to make it through the cow that finishes ripening this Saturday.   

       We do make a fresh start with each new day, I hope? Just 1/8 of a boar for breakfast would make me feel a little faint.

       I had to pack the rest of my breakfast. Still working on it. If you find me dead clutching my molecular scissors ... you know what happened.

       And, like most diets, they would lose 1 kg the first week. 1/2 kg the next week. 1/4 kg the next week.

       Has anyone here got a spare molecular scissor? I've lost mine behind some atoms. Either that or the louse ate it again.
