A semicircle is smaller than a circle (that is, than a circle that's otherwise similar, which is to say that has the same radius). But what semiX is larger than the X itself?
Uh guys - a semicircle is not even a circle, it is half of a circle.

I have said for a long time this board should be restricted to lawyers - hopefully passing the bar suggest some indication of having the ability to read and enough respect for others' time as not to feel compelled to write down every harebrained thought that enters your mind.
I really wish the idiot commenters here would not feel it necessary to clutter up the threads
As for the question, a moon semi-obscured by the Earth (Half Moon) would be larger than a moon fully obscured (New Moon). I suspect we haven't yet guessed what EV had in mind, however.
May I mambo dogface to the banana patch?

semicolon is less of a break than an actual colon just as a semiconductor is less of a conductor than a conductor.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.
We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.
And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
