Fridge as Example of Zeno’s Paradox
When clearing out the dining room, I was looking to move our fridge to our actual kitchen kitchen. After emptying it out, I was able to maneuver it over myself… but the measurements I took weren’t quite right.
Or that is to say, the measurements were right, but my thought that I could “get it through the door” was incorrect. After a lot of attempts, I realized that I needed to take the doors off.
With the food having been out for a while, I decided to hold off, restocked the fridge, and left it in the middle of the room.
Fast forward to the next night – did the same thing, got the doors off, and with Liz’s help was able to move this guy into the kitchen. But after we got there, we decided to flip the swing of the doors.
Which, it turned out, was not the best thing (we should have left the swing the way it was). Once more, with the food being out and our frozen foods getting a little warm… we decided to keep things as-is, and would re-flip at a later time.
On the plus side, I’m getting a lot of good practice in, disassembling and re-assembling refrigerator doors. And on top of that – our fridge is in the kitchen officially!
Small steps. We’re almost done clearing out this room, and should be ready to knock down the walls any day now.
