[Phys-L] Zeno's Paradoxes

Does any one know about the solutions to the 2000+ years old Zeno's Paradoxes. I believe Bertrand Russell is credited with having solved these paradoxes after 2000 years of unsuccessful attempts by many intellectuals.

I like to discuss especially the Arrow & Apple and Achille & Hare paradoxes when doing kinematics with my students.

PS: In keeping with the spirit of science humor going on I would like to submit this:

While a college class was in session, a voluptuous blonde in a skin tight dress walked in late and drew attention from the boys. The boys started passing comments and whistling at her out of excitement. A quiet nerd sitting next to a highly excited boy turned toward him and said," Don't you know from our biology class she and all of us are mostly water?'. The boy replied, " Yesssssss, but just notice the surface tension!!!!!!!?".
