  Olive oil smoke point - The Olive Oil Source   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
One website for macadamia nut oil puts their oil at the top of the list with a smoke point of 410 degrees F. On their chart olive oil comes in at a measly 190 degrees F. Avocado oil sites say their oil has the highest smoke point and claim nut oils are terrible for frying.
The smoke point for a vegetable oil will vary according to the variety and growing conditions, and how the oil was produced.
The Olive Oil Source claims that extra virgin olive oil smokes from 400 to 365 degrees F according to it's free fatty acid content.

 topology - HighBeam Encyclopedia
A continuous transformation, also called a topological transformation or homeomorphism, is a one-to-one correspondence between the points of one figure and the points of another figure such that points that are arbitrarily close on one figure are transformed into points that are also arbitrarily close on the other figure.
If V is the number of points (vertices) in the decomposition, E is the number of line segments (edges), and F is the number of regions (faces), then the characteristic is given by Χ= V - E + F and is the same for all possible polyhedral decomposition of the given surface.
Closely related to the Euler-Poincaré characteristic is the connectivity number of a surface, which is equal to the largest number of closed cuts (or cuts connecting points on boundaries or on previous cuts) that can be made on the surface without separating it into two or more parts.

 Brainstorms: Jefferson Airplane and Point Source Mutation
In the vocabulary of DNA science, these two versions may be construed as a point source mutation.
Thus, given equivalency, and conceding that it is a most difficult and rare thing to procure improvement by means of single letter (point source) mutation in one of these languages, why must we assume that such transformation is likely and common in the other?
It has occurred to me that some readers of my discussion on literary point source mutations might have thought my challenge to transform doggerel into poetry was a mere rhetorical device.
