You, on the other hand, never understood calculus.

Parallel Lines can meet when you actually apply them in 3D dimensions. The best example I have would be the longitude lines on Earth. They're exact distances apart and parallel, but they do touch at the North and South pole

I don't think those count as parallel.

Well, technically a tangent like can cross at multiple points. For example in the graph to the right the tangent line passes through the graph twice. A tangent line is not a line that crosses a function once. A better way of explaining it would be to imagine the tangent line crossing the curve at point P would be to define point Q as any other point on the curve. The secant line joining point P and point Q would become the tangent line when Q is brought to and is point P.    
   
So a tangent line could possible cross a line an infinite number of times (An easy example would be either tangent line with slope = 0 on either the sin or the cos functions.)

parallel lines meet in infinity...

It's not funny, so it must be junk.

This isn't trigonometry.

Actually, asymptotes can be together, sinx/x has an asymptote at y=0, yet crosses the x-axis multiple times. Also, look up oscillating functions.

Calculus, bitches.

but aren't lines just really small really long rectangles?
User avatar #26 - andovaredoras (10/16/2013) [-]
So how's trigonometry related to that gif?

Wikipedia:
Trigonometry (from Greek trigōnon "triangle" + metron "measure"[1]) is a branch of mathematics that studies triangles and the relationships between the lengths of their sides and the angles between those sides.


Don't hate me for wondering about this.
