|Pizza and a paradox (for pick-up).

So at work we have these things called "crew pies", which are basically pizzas made for the employees to share. They generally get eaten up pretty fast, except for the last piece, which is subjected to a strange ritual.
No one wants to be the one to take the last slice, so what happens is someone will take the pizza cutter and cut the slice in half, eating the new, smaller slice. The process is then repeated by the next employee to wander by, and so on, until all that's left is just a tiny sliver, like so:
Of course, according to Zeno's Dichotomy Paradox the pizza will never be completely eaten, and there will always be pizza left for anyone who wants it. At least, until yours truly comes along and eats the entire sliver.
So much for Zeno.
