The time when the turtle beat the hare
One time, a neighborhood community was holding a bicycle race. To win, not only did you have to pass the finish line, but your feet had to remain on the pedals at all times. If your feet touched the ground, the committee would add a five-second penalty to your finish time.
One cyclist realized immediately that people were going to bump into each other and suffer the penalties. Instead of dashing to the finish line and risk touching the ground, they waited patiently until the road was completely clear. After that, they zoomed past the checkered flag without their feet touching the ground once.
