The line is a multi-faceted, all-purpose abstraction that played a fundamental role in the New Geometry Power Movement.
This is a line: _______
Ok, fine, geometrically speaking, a line goes on infinitely in either direction, and that series of underscores masquerading as a line is in truth, merely a line segment.
Lines are used to explain things such as concepts, formulas, and theories.
Lines: What Are They Good For?Edit
Well, a line is a thing that is straight, basically. You can draw one on a board or paint one on a highway (as long as they both go on without curving, for infinity). Put an arrowhead on a line, and you can give people directions! Curve a line, and you can create little doodles in your notebook during math class like I did!
What Else Are They Good For?Edit
For until now, most learners of line principle stop merely at its face conceptualization. What they do not know is the infinite nature of the line when in the Cartesian Plane. That, once beyond the reaches of human mental capacity, there lies an inverse, paralleling our existence, linked in stasis, binded only by its own endlessness.
A straight line is a line that doesn't get all squiggly. Many argue that straight lines are the only kinds of lines and that squiggly lines don't even exist. However, they are definitely wrong, as is evidenced by the fact that if you go to an amusement park, you will probably end up standing in a curvy line.
A straight line is not the shortest distance between two points. That would be a black hole. Straight lines lose to black holes all the time in races. A straight line could never beat a black hole in a race because, even if the straight line were going to win, the black hole would make it get all squiggly and it wouldn't win as a straight line. Squiggly lines are the only kinds of lines that beat black holes.
A gay line is a line is the opposite of a straight line. They are known for being multicolored, flamboyantly curved, and appearing after a rainfall. They are often sung about by amphibians and Kansans
