MoronOfOz: A point is not a distance. A point is a location. You can describe that a location in a number of ways: a pair of distances, a distance and a direction, an intersection of two lines etc. But a point is not a distance.
JG: Nowhere have I ever said any such thing. Do you enjoy being an ignorant idiot? I used distance as a *coordinate*, you fucking moron!!!! Here's what I wrote:

I was trying to clarify certain facts with KQ.
> Of course not, a line is the shortest distance between two points.
You should try reading for a change! Idiot!
Moron of Oz: OMG you really have no idea what it is you are talking about. I suggest you try a new hobby.
JG: O, the irony! Rolling my Eyes. You are quite likely one of the dumbest bastards I have met on this forum. You should really find something more useful to do. If you don't understand, try asking. Don't pretend you know anything because you are an imbecile and everyone who isn't an imbecile knows this.
