360 degrees of coverage is quite inadequate as a sphere is 360 x 180 degrees.
Intuitively, a person pictures a hemisphere.

And just since everyone loves questions.... A fly in a cubical room is on one wall two meters off the ground in the middle of the wall. The room is 3M x 3M x 3M. The fly walks to the farthest wall also in the middle two meters off the floor. How far did the fly walk if it took the shortest distance?
5M seems obvious.

No, that pair of rotations maps a sphere.

The correct answers are that you don't bury the survivors and the bear is white.

Why this person isn't famous for geometry skills.

One of those biting flies.
It took the shortest distance, so....

If the fly took the shortest distance, it did not walk at all. Ed, what is the point?

If the fly was 2m off the ground, he was not in the middle of the wall.

But it's all relative isnt it? I like to play vinyl once in a while, I enjoy finding records of music I like and in good shape.
it's often a social thing the way you describe it.
But it's a bit like Rolls Royce doubling their Silver Phantom sales from 10/yr to 20/yr and claiming the world is going for quality automobiles.

Not exactly , it's more like Efi is here, now throw away your weber carburetors, carb sales dwindle to non existence , factories close and disappear and suddenly 30yrs later carb sales are coming back , doubling in sales yearly, new factories are opening , auto designers are now requesting them and young new car buyers find them interesting enough to tick the option box on a product most thought was dead.


Err, just saying ...

A question from the 70ies:

Are you driving your Ferrari, or is it having its carbs adjusted?
