      "will be"?
      • Heh!

        Isn't saying "you'll be x in no time" just a long-winded way of saying "you are x"?

        After all, the assertion is that there will be "no time" between where you are now and becoming x.

        • Sorry, I don't think I have ever known anyone to take "in no time" literally. :)

            An English woman once told me that "just now" refers to the immediate future in the UK, while in the US it refers to the immediate past.

            Could there be the same sort of confusion for "in no time"? Or are they just ruining the joke? :-P

        • If he's not there yet (in a temporal sense), does Xeno's Paradox apply? What's half of "no time"?

          • Uh, it would, but then someone had to come along and mess up all those wonderful Xeno's Parodoxes with calculus...
