Looks like AC and DF don't even have to be parallel.

That's it, thanks. Problem is that you can only google it if you know what it's called!

comment How to explain Real Big Numbers?
IMO your RSA example is exactly the problem: at least some people seem to think they can grasp 10^500. I was wondering how to explain the magnitude of such a number such that they might have an aha-experience (or maybe uh-oh).

comment What is $\sqrt{i}$?
@Agusti - I don't see this link to the intro to LaTex, but I can find this elsewhere on the 'Net. I tried replacing "pi" with "\pi" but the symbol doesn't appear. Is there something else I should know?
