So if you scare a cat half to death, does it lose 4.5 lives?

Oh come on!  The first time you are scared half to death, you are left with half a life.  If you are then scared half to death again, its one half of that half.  And half of a half is...?

yes, well done, a quarter.

simple maths.

You can apply similar logic to prove that you can never reach a destination. In half the time it would take you to get there, you will have travelled half the distance. Measure again in half the time again and you are 3/4 of the way there. Keep dividing the time & distance in half & you never get where you're going.
