  • Making the lines cross

    this may not make sense to anyone, but I hope it does to one of you great searchers. I think there is something to the “cross the lines” “lines crossing” quotes from Forrest. And there is no X. In my newest solve, I have three points. I have tried to fore a forth one, but it makes no sense. My question, can you have lines cross with only three points? Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

        I think 3 is correct.

          I suppose you could if one of the points was the crossing point and the other two end points.

            If the 3 points are colinear, no. If they aren't, yes. Study a bit about geometry. Good luck. If you're close to Santa Fe, it may be worth visiting.

              Per Old Pilot: as long as the 3 points aren't on a line, they can specify a point. Simplest is to draw a line from each triangle vertex through the midpoint of the opposing side. Those three lines will intersect within the triangle.

                No matter how many points I seem to make, and believe me I've made some good ones, I always seem to cross the line somehow or other. Heck, I've crossed the line with just one point before, and a few times just by looking at her funny. I'd say forget making points and avoid crossing lines at all costs, especially with the woman you have to share a single-wide with. Believe me, it just ain't worth it.

                *I'd also avoid cooking beans after 3pm, generally speaking. They may be good for the heart, but they ain't no friend to romance.

                      #ThePainIsReal. Nah, kidding, I love her. Highly supportive of Chase. Hell, spent 400-500 days before that in Rocky Mtns helping me look.

                        You can plot a 90 degree intersection point from each of those three points to the line created by the other two.

                          Hi Diggio: and if we *really* want to go off the reservation we can start talking about tarry points. ;-)

                            KPro,
                            I gather your PHD is in social studies. Ha ha
                            Forget the lines and human paths and use the dictionary, especially for heavy loads.

                              Tarry Point is my favorite rabbit hole. Highly technical and, indeed, off the reservation.
                              In my opinion.
