    If I parked my car behind yours, and parked 5' behind yours, then every day I would move my car toward yours, moving it half the distance it was the day before......how many days before our cars touched?

    It doesn't matter, because at any instant of time the cars are motionless.

    My parking brake is going to give out one of these days, so probably sooner than you think.

    Eleven days, six hours and twelve minutes, precisely.

    But only for your car.

    Probably on day two when I had to get out of my space, so I crammed it in reverse and floored it shoving your car back about 10 feet and upon to the sidewalk. :dunno

    Theoretically never. Zero isn't half of anything, you can't get there dividing by 2.
    and actually never. i would just move my car because some A hole keeps parking too close

    This seems like a question for our really smart/gifted NAMBLA members here on TGP. So if you're one of those select few NAMBLA members please speak up!

    You can tell afterwards that they've "touched" when their offspring, new baby cars have arrived.
