Wiki says :

"An Achillesís heel is a fatal weakness in spite of overall strength, actually or potentially leading to downfall. While the mythological origin refers to a physical vulnerability, metaphorical references to other attributes or qualities that can lead to their downfall are common."

which is nice !!!

Didn't his old mom dip baby Achilles into some magic river that would make him immortal only she had to hold him by something so she held his heels. His heels were the only thing that didn't get dipped so an injury to this area was the only thing that could kill him. He became a great warrior but was eventually killed by said injury. The question is, did his mum get immortal fingers?
Sheepy, if you had some magic sheep dip, which bit should I hold in order to dip you in?
