comment How to create circles and or sections of a circle when the centre is inaccessible
@MathsFail If you have a big circle you may indeed want to go to the park. Note that you will only need a sheet as big as the area that you will actually work on in your garden. -- I must admit I got a bit stuck in the language whilst reading the post of the other person with a similar idea, but in hindsight I must give credit to nickalh for presenting the concept first.

As to method C: I believe that a shadow of a circle does not automatically become a circle, but it could perhaps become one if you do things right. It seems that your method A is quite similar to my solution, I would personally recommend you to use more formatting to make sure the message really stands out.

Your template inspired me to come up with the 'opposite' solution.

comment Is chess Turing-complete?
@StevenStadnicki Thanks for the heads up! I think reducing the queens area to 2x2 solved the problem, but if there is still a mistake feel free to correct it.

comment Is chess Turing-complete?
A chess position can be defined as where the pieces are, and how they moved to get there. If you don't consider the last part then I suppose this answer does not hold. Based on the second comment to the question, I assumed the move history would be recorded.

comment Is x/x equal to 1
If I read the linked answer it actually states that the value is 1. Do you mean that the answer on SO is incorrect?

comment How can I write the numbers 5 and 7 as some sequence of operations on three 9s?
Not sure whether it will help for mobile phones, but PC scrolling would be reduced if you made it a code block. (The button that looks like {})

comment What is the division of $1/0$?
From a mathematical point of view this is not very interesting, but you may run into issues like this if you try to do limited precision computations. Example that will work on many softwares using floating point numbers: 1/(0.9-0.3-0.3-0.3)
