Parallel lines

They say that parallel lines would never meet? I beg to differ. React to this statement by posting your reasons below. Let's see the best one.

One concrete example for this can be the horizon, where the land and sky appear to meet. But they never meet until infinity.

Good example. Mine is related to this :)

It is not necessary that parallel lines must be straight, they are the line which maintain equal distance between them. Now, think of a situation where parallel lines are moving on a triangle/circle then they will definitely meet each other at some point.

My friend told me that one example are the longitudes. :) When we are in our elementary years, they are defined as vertical imaginary lines. Next thing we know is where they meet ;)

Well, parallel lines are considered to meet at infinity. So, if you can reach infinity, which I presume is not much easy a job, you watch them meet. :)

Yes, that is true. However, can you think of a concrete example which can prove the intersection of parallel lines? :)

I think A railway track is like a parallel line but they will intersect at various place generally naerer to station

definition of parallel lines says that parallel lines are straight lines.so there is no probabilities that they would meet somewhere.

. It is impossible that parallel lines will be meet ,because of their equal slopes.Lines will intersect ,if they are unequal slope.

Parallel lines are meet at infinite. :-) ... Proof -: when we see sky and land, it seems to be meet each other at infinite
