Abstract

Recall the old story of two frogs from Osaka and Kyoto which meet during their travels. They want to share a pie. An opportunistic cat offers to help and divides the pie into two pieces. On finding one piece to be larger, she breaks off a bit from the larger one and gobbles it up. Now, she finds that the other piece is slightly larger; so, she proceeds to break off a bit from that piece and gobbles that up, only to find that the first piece is now bigger. And so on; you can guess the rest. The frogs are left flat!
