distance between the line & curve approaching zero

 The word asymptote is derived from the Greek asymptotos
which means "not falling together".
 The term was introduced by Apollonius of Perga in his work on conic sections,
but in contrast to its modern meaning,
he used it to mean any line that does not intersect the given curve.

In English .. "trust" that Todd would fly over
before smacking my "chromed-dome"!
