I seem to be doing longer comics than normal now, I guess it's because I'm thinking of less of the quick fire jokes, but you can believe it's out of hard work or something like that if you want.

Today's question is brought to you courtesy of Technical Drawing.
Describe in detail how you would bisect an angle between two lines with using a device to measure the angle.
For a bonus 10 points, explain how you would find the locus between an arc/circle and a line.

Without using a protractor or similar equipment, you'd have to:
1) Get a Compass
2) Measure over halfway of one of the lines.
3) Draw an arc that intersects both lines of the angle
4) Keeping the compasses the same distance, draw two arcs with the spike at each point where the arc intercepted the line.
5) Where those two arcs cross, that is the bisecting angle.

But I don't know about the locus.

Phoenix of Chaos is correct for 5 points! That means it's all to play for in tomorrow's double points update! Who wins? I decide.
Also, since the prizes from now on are specific requests it'd be helpful if you had a drawing to request in mind in case you won for tomorrow.

That means the scores are:
This week's points:
BlazeTF and Flashydoggydogg: 20
Phoenix of Chaos: 15


Total points:
Bowserknight: 110
Phoenix of Chaos: 70
BlazeTF: 60
youdont12know: 45
flashydoggydogg: 20
wendy w: 5
All others: 0
