parallel lines travel forever with never meeting which is sad
but every other line meet once and forever drift further apart. and this is also sad.

I honestly didn't know what an asymptote was or why I had saved this.

used for graphs, they can get close as 1micromieter, but never do they cross each other. Something like this
why did i remeber this?

Foci'd in the asymptote and All Strippers Take Cash (All, sin, tan, cos) are the 2 thing i remember most about pre-cal in high school

An asymptote is a line that an equation can never reach but gets very close FOr example, if we have 1/x, it gets closer and closer to 0 but never quite reaches it.

Yes, two parallel lines can meet depending on the geometric context. In the typical, standard context of Euclidean geometry, this is not possible. However, mathematics always "assumes" a certain context of restrictions and logical limitations (e.g. real numbers vs. complex plane). Real projective geometry is one in which parallel lines meet at a point at infinity. An interesting implication of this is that +infinity and -infinity are equal.

Nope. They just keep on going.

Einstein was an absolute genius. But even he has been proven wrong in a couple of places.

No matter how far along the line you travel, they won't get any closer to eachother. If they ever do meet, then they are not parallel after all.

I am, but unfortunately don't speak it. Thanks for trying though.

What it is saying is that if we stand really far away, the lines look like they are touching and therefore are. It is as hard to think about as why our government consists of the people it does.

Thank you for showing me this. I am, as my name implies, a nerd. I am even subscribed to Veritasium on Youtube. I really appreciate it. A thumb for each of your comments!

Actually, parallel lines can meet if the space is curved
