Well, as a lifelong Canuck, I haven't lived in any states. Yet. My son is musing about moving South after he finishes his degree and we might follow eventually just to stay close to family.

And then there is the circle of confusion...



Circle of confusion
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For the closely related topic in microscopy, see Point spread function.
Diagram showing circles of confusion for point source too close, in focus, and too far

In optics, a circle of confusion is an optical spot caused by a cone of light rays from a lens not coming to a perfect focus when imaging a point source. It is also known as disk of confusion, circle of indistinctness, blur circle, or blur spot.

In photography, the circle of confusion (CoC) is used to determine the depth of field, the part of an image that is acceptably sharp. A standard value of CoC is often associated with each image format, but the most appropriate value depends on visual acuity, viewing conditions, and the amount of enlargement. Usages in context include maximum permissible circle of confusion, circle of confusion diameter limit, and the circle of confusion criterion.

Real lenses do not focus all rays perfectly, so that even at best focus, a point is imaged as a spot rather than a point. The smallest such spot that a lens can produce is often referred to as the circle of least confusion.

I have visited 37 of the contiguous 48, most of Europe, and China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan in Asia. I also have been to the former countries Hon g Kong (often) and Macau. The place I would most like to visit next is Africa, and of course, Alaska.

You have lived in seven states? Dang, you get around my friend.

Yep. Born in Illinois, grew up in Iowa, spent my young adulthood in Mpls. and NYC, moved to Colorado, where I am now. And I lived in Texas for a summer while in college, and growing up we spent a couple years in Arizona.
