I call a light display like you describe “winning”!
Whatever happened to the search engine Alta Vista?
Yes. The limit as x approaches 2 is the more interesting since you would be approaching division by zero. Should go to + infinity from the right and – infinity from the left
I have heard this game referred to as “slopes.” That may be a midwestern or Ohio name for it.
Neil Young was a has-been in 2007 and he is pathetic in 2022. Neil, you sang that “rust never sleeps” but you didn’t heed your own words. Just quietly go away.
I don’t believe that there exists ANY issue needing congressional action that 90% of Americans agree on.
Your comment about unwrapping the roots works for trees and shrubs in plastic containers. Yes, you do remove the plastic container and scratch up the side of the root ball to help release the roots that have grown back on themselves since they cannot get through the container wall. Container items are grown in a potting soil-like mix. Burlap trees contain a ball of the dirt the tree was growing in. Do not remove the burlap and bust up the root ball! That only lets air in around the roots which can increase the chance of rotting and death of the plant. Now you can transplant plants what is called bare-rooted where you take very little of the dirt with the plant. That works OK with smaller trees during the dormant season when the tree will be fairly quickly replanted.
As a nurseryman, NEVER remove burlap. Burlap disintegrates very quickly; even treated burlap is gone within a year. Burlap does not stop roots – they tunnel right through it.Many if not most times the burlap is the only thing holding the root ball together. If you remove the burlap the ball can fall apart, greatly increasing the chance that the tree will die.If it is not burlap on their tree, then follow the instructions given.Our large trees also have a wire basket tight on the outside of the root ball and tied to the trunk. Leave the wire basket on when you plant the tree. It holds the large root balls together and makes the tree easier to handle. Always remove any string.I sometimes will remove burlap from the top of the ball after planting if it is visible just to help the looks.
We had a recessed spot like that in the hall for the phone in our 1940’s built house.My grandfather had a small desk-chair unit with a light that came on when you sat down in the chair for his phone.
