The Top Ten

1 Dichotomy Paradox

In simple words think you have to go from point A to B (you are starting from point A) then you must first cross 1/2 the distance but to cross 1/2 the distance you must cross 1/4 of 1/2 the distance but to do so you must first cover 1/6 of 1/4 the distance and to do that you must cover 1/18 the distance and so on so you must cover infinity to get to point b - Toucan

Well this paradox is the official name of my Bus Stop Paradox that I mentioned in my own Paradoxes list. And yeah, it does really mess up your brain if you don't know calculus. Integration is the answer to this seemingly unanswerable paradox. - Kiteretsunu

Suppose you take one part of a super cool destroying battle cruiser and replace it,the cruiser will still remain the Same right but if you you do this over and over till the last part of the ship remains,it still remains the orignal and so all the parts are the orignal but if you replace the last orignal orignal part (what else to call it ) and replace it it should still remain the orignal cruiser and the rest of the parts if you assemble into another cruiser so both the cruisers should be the same,right? - Toucan
