The Red Queen's Race

Ever feel like you are running as fast as you can just to keep up with those around you? You, my friends, are running the Red Queen's Race.

An excerpt from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass: 
     "Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else -- if you run very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."
     "A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"
