A Short History of Division

Year 1: We stumble onto a knife blade. We are cut and require numerous stitches. Year 0.1: While recovering we watch The Incredible Shrinking Man and are moved to tears by his circumstances. Year 0.01: We buy ice cream and divide it equally among us. Year 0.001: We discover our method of apportioning the ice cream is seriously flawed. Some got less than others. Year 0.0001: We are running out of room in which to think and mull over alternatives. Year 0.00001: The ants loom above us, threatening to divide our bodies into little chewy bits. Year 0.000001: We are fascinated by the concept of proton decay. Year 0.0000001: Unity frightens us. We are all for one.
