I am at the 250 box challenge . But my ellipses are horrible when I draw them they look like a balloon or an egg - shape . When I was doing ellipses in plains I never seem to hit all the sides of the plane . My circle looks like a teardrop and honestly I don’t want it to stay that way . I have no idea wether is this is due to my disability in seeing lines ( lines never meet , or they disappear when I look at them , they look crooked/they move ) or it’s just I suck .
I want to get better at this but I recall in lesson 0 it states to not ‘cram’ or something like that . So I need advice from everyone . Thanks .
I have this idea of the 'villainess and heroine' both remembering their futures, but the twist is that they only remember it alternating. Meaning in one life the villainess remembers how she was cast down by the heroine and then does things to change that future and get revenge and her happy ending and then the clock is turned back again and the heroine remembers everything and gets revenge on the villainess and so on.
Until they for some reason both remember at the same time and they fight more viciously than ever but realize that they are trapped in this endless eclipse of revenge and have to work together to break free. They hate each other for a lot of the story because both remember (maybe even multiple) lives of suffering because of the other. They try to figure out how it started and who was the bad one, to begin with, but slowly they have to learn to forgive each other and face their own foul behavior towards the other and realize that they are not so different from each other and work together.
It should be a story about hate creating hate and the circle of revenge (or ellipse because it has two fixpoints it circles around)
Especially younger people. If you’re 20 and putting “...” after every couple words or sentences, you sound like you’re a 50 year old aunt on Facebook that never took a grammar class. The tone that conveys is just awful. “Okay... guess I’ll just... text you later... when I’m... alone...”
It makes you sounded like a dejected puppy.
I talk to someone who does this in every sentence, and it takes every bit of will power I have not to beat their phone with a brick so I never have to see it again.
Firs of all I’m very excited to join the forthcoming group read of what is probably what I’d consider one of the best books I’ve ever read. This will only be my second reading, so many of you will probably have a far better understanding of it than I do.
As a prelude to this, I will try to outline what I think is an interesting perspective on Pynchon’s work, and how it applies to M&D, namely the conic sections. For those unaware (I guess most people on here know about this, but anyway), the conic sections are the shapes that appear if you slice a cone at different angles. At exactly 90 degrees, you obviously get a V. If you slice it at the same angle as the angle of the cone’s sides, you get a parabola. Slice it at an angle between that and 90 degrees, you get a hyperbola, at an angle between that of the side and 180 degrees you get an ellipse, and at 180 degrees you get a circle (here’s a illustration).
What does this have to do with M&D? Well, it seems that each of these conic sections plays a part in Pynchon’s novels. The V shape is obviously in his first book V, where two points of narrative seem to be converging towards the end but, disappointingly, never do. The parabola is the shape of the V2 rocket’s trajectory (Gravity’s Rainbow), and also a shape widely used in Nazi architecture. The hyperbola has been connected to Against the Day in ways I won’t go into here. Now, the ellipse is obviously a very fitting shape for M&D. Firstly, and most importantly, it is the shape of the orbits of heavenly bodies moving through space, as was discovered by Kepler in the 17th century. In much the same way, Mason and Dixon's courses through life orbit each other, leading them alternately far apart and close together (like the orbits of comets). I tried to search around for previous discussions of this topic, and didn't find much, though I'm sure that none of what I'm about to say will be very original. ANyWayS...
An ellipse is defined by two foci (Mason and Dixon), where the sum of the distance from each of them to the periphery is always the same. The ellipse is encountered in many places in astronomy. Because of the earth’s movement around the sun, we observe a phenomenon called stellar parallax, in which seemingly fixed stars in the sky, when very closely observed, appear to trace out ellipses against a background of... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have no idea what it is, it's just, I don't know, makes me feel severe self entitlement coming off of that person. Maybe because a lot of the time, people use them to start an argument. Or make others curious/nervous on what you mean to say. Be straight up, don't hide behind a dot dot dot. Just say what you need to say.
Edit: Me reading the comments has got me triggered beyond belief 😂😂
This is something I've noticed over the course of 5 years and I know it's a generalization, so apologies if anyone is offended. Almost every email I receive from a coworker over the age of about 35 is loaded with ellipses. I got two just today, one said "I understand.... thank you so much!" And the other said "yes please... (name)." Can anyone who does this let me know why? It's baffled me for a while and I'd really like an answer.
Trying to figure out a good way to use both of these to where they look good, while not looking ugly if, say, they happen to go to the next line (like the second of a double dash going to the next line by itself).
How do you guys do it? Double dash, or em-dash? do you place a space before and after your ellipses? What about your dashes?
How I currently do it is I place no space before an ellipse, but one after it, but for double dashes, I put a space before and after. I guess this can work for parentheticals, but the aforementioned problem (one or both dashes getting onto the next line by themselves) is a pretty common problem. And even then, it can happen with parentheticals, and it looks very ugly.

I have an elliptical coffee table that I’m going to raise by putting some legs on it. I would like to make it as stable as possible by ensuring that the leg positions support the largest percentage of the table.
Then table is 60cm x 80cm. I’m mainly interested in the answer, but also interested in how to get there as I couldn’t figure out how to put the dimensions into the correct elliptical formula.
Thanks for your help!
Hey optics people,
I am building up a brightfield (and fluorescence) microscope to observe cells and see an effect I do not understand. The optical path is as follows: a condensor, the object I observe (a sample of 15 µm beads), the objective lens (10x), a dichroic mirror, a bandpass filter, the tube lens and the camera. I observe the following effect: When I focus on the beads, they have a perfectly round shape. When I defocus sligthly, the shape of the beads becomes elliptic. If I defocus in the other direction, the shape is elliptical aswell, but turned by 90°. I already tried to tilt and shift the condensor, it changed the image, but did not alter this ellipse effect. I also tilted the camera itself, but again, this did not change the ellipse effect. Tilting the dichroic mirror also did not explain the effect. It is mechanically harder for me to tilt the objective lens and the tube lens. What would be the explanation of this ellipse effect? Is there an optical element that you expect to be the source of this, or could it be any of them?
Thank you for any input, I would really like to understand this phenomenon.
That is to say: a graph with multiple feature variables showing different ellipses plots for class groups. What do the ellipses actually tell us? How are the ellipses graphed? What does overlap among ellipses mean? What basic graphing theory techniques are ellipse graphs based on?
I look at ellipse graphs and just think: huh - it looks like clustering but I know it isn't clustering. I have no idea what this is saying and it is awful confusing.
Scroll to section 4.2. The first plot there is the one I am asking about.
I'm trying to make a funnel that will go from being circular at Y=0 to being elliptical at Y=110. My intuitive method would be to create a pair o concentric circles in a sketch at Y=0, create an offset sketch at Y=110 with a pair of concentric ellipses, and extrude the area between the two circles up to the area between the two ellipses.
But how can I actually do this? Is there a better method? Thanks.

It's a "NEW serie vs OLD serie" battle...both with USB.
The old one (5e) has 1 schuko, larger capacity and lower price, the new one (Ellipse) has 4 schuko and smaller capacity.
Use case: make DS920+ shutdown correctly and keep my Fritzbox alive for whatever time.
Spent less possible? :D
