^ I believe this is called a tangent

Yes, you're correct...I know what a tangent is--very useful when hustling pool. But that's an unnecessary conecpt and IMO a distraction from the explanation. Math is NOT my native tongue.

A tangent is when we're talking about one thing and then we go off talking about something else.
Yes, you too are correct--like petty, and mean spirited, over the fence, fish-mongering gossip about other makers or businesses. Or photo-bombing a thread about stylistic effects during photo shoots. Or chattering about country manors...or manners.

It's not a tangent when someone asks about fair curves...which are directly critical to bespoke work...and someone else answers.

You know how when you see ducks flying in a "flying V," one side is almost always just a little bit longer than the other, right?

You know why that is?
