Depending on which profession you’re talking to, 0.001 inches is either a mil, a thou, “why aren’t you using metric?”, or uselessly fucking small.

This is MPAR ATD, a phased array antenna installed at The National Severe Storms Lab in Norman, OK. Each stitch is an antenna in the array, 4,864 total. Each 8x8 section outlined in black is a stand-alone panel that can be swapped out. Phased arrays are cool 🤓

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

@ejk Now that I think about it, it's really a system of equations, if you wanted to graph it out, and they probably intersect on just one point:
18 ÷ x = y and
x - y = 7

So, the first is already pretty simple, y = 18 ÷ x. Let me solve the 2nd for y:
-y + x = 7
-(-y) = -(7 - x)
y = -7 + x, or y = x - 7

The only point that satisfies both equations is (9, 2). So there is just the one solution, including fractional factors!

But of course, they won't see this method till high school Geometry. :D
