Professional and enthusiast currently working at Yelp. As a logician, I believe anything can be made possible, though not all roads lead to tractable solutions.

As an eclectic programmer, I'm not always the best person to answer your question. But, I do my best.

comment Deconstruction of the phrase “some variety of” to refer to a single type or class of object
@FumbleFingers Localized jargon combined with a poor first sourcing of the dictionary definition. Note that there's a clear disparity of information here; I only personally put something into an SE question when I'm unable to move forward in researching it trivially. -- To that end, thank you for mentioning Google NGrams (books.google.com/ngrams). That'll work nicely in my bag of tricks alongside Google Trends.

That'll do. It's one of those edge cases where the most findable definition is itself confusing in its narrowing use of qualifiers.

comment What term is most appropriate when describing the infinite space of possibilities created through inductive reasoning?
@FumbleFingers +1. I hadn't actually considered using the term unbounded on its own, which does elegantly and pithily describe the space. Thank you for responding, despite your difficulties with my phrasing of the problem.
