the partials commute, and do you still need
to use the trilateral inequality?

thus: so, what's the math for this nonconvex shape of equigonal
trigona ??

thus quoth:
Darfur is Sudan's poorest, wildest region. One of the Islamic World's
first anti-colonial
movements, known in the west as the Dervishes, burst from the wastes
of Darfur in the
1880s. Led by the fiery "Mahdi," the Dervishes drove the British
imperialists from Sudan,
an event immortalized in the splendid Victorian novel, Four Feathers.
The Dervishes took
Khartoum, slaying Britain's proconsul, Sir Charles "Chinese" Gordon.
The "martyred" Gordon's death roused a storm in Britain, resulting in
a punitive army
sent up the Nile (including the young Winston Churchill) that
destroyed the Dervish army
at Omdurman. But remote Darfur remained a hotbed of rebellion.

thus:
otherwise, coal's a very (?) important feedstock. so,
what is the sustainable production of natural gas & natural oil?...
Atoms, Machiavelli, Machiavelli & Oil need a figure
for the venture ads!... coal, we know from its pre-fossil
formations,
to be produced catastrophically; the burial
of whole, swampy ecosystems.
Yucca Flats is a farce majeur, even if
there's any thing left to bury, by the time it'd open, or
by noon, Pacific Time.

thus:
the Brooklyn Bridge is a powerful metaphor, but
it has to be told in the context of its manifestation
as David McCullough's first production for PBS:
his first, big SALE, in other word,
to the "eastern liberal establishment" of Wall Street,
the District of Columbia and protege Ken "Civil War Jazzbo" Burns.

thus:
so, did you recalibrate the orbital constraints
to include the phasal parameter "as 'seen' from Earth?..."
was Venus closer to conjunction or opposition
to Earth, during those alleged missions?...
