I'm just a single point on a complex plane. I'm not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. I always feel restless despite being in the safe zone. You can't teach me anything, but you can stimulate me to think! I am a detail-oriented analyst and interested in almost everything. Consistency, optimization, best-practice, & perfection are always my first priority in mind! Therefore by my questions & answers you'll fully recognize me. I can tell you more but then I have to kill you.

I distribute my rep in bounties as spending money for my & your pleasure is more meaningful than saving money in a bank & abandoning it unused.

"If you're an underdog, mentally disabled, physically disabled, if you don't fit in, if you're not as pretty as the others, you can still be a hero, read TEXBook!"

"Motivation isn't enough. If you've an idiot & you motivate him, now you've a motivated idiot."

Learning (La)TeX, PSTricks, & PGF/TikZ is similar to learning how to swim or drive a car. You don’t get the full benefit by watching someone else do it. Your own fingers must get involved.

Don't be lukewarm! If you cannot be the best, be the worst!

Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a toilet paper.

For every problem, there is always a solution that is simple, neat, but wrong.

Best practices

  1. Use pdflatex \input{filename} instead of pdflatex filename.
  2. Don't specify the file extension in \includegraphics.
  3. Divide your project into a main & smaller input files & compile the main with pdflatex.
  4. Put each code snippet 4 either drawing a diagram or making a table into a standalone input file & compile it to produce a PDF.
  5. Define global macros 4 often-used materials, put them into a separate package thereby changing the macros in one place will effect the whole document.
  6. Remove unnecessary packages.
  7. Don't mix different series, families, font size, & shapes, ESPECIALLY IN ONE SENTENCE.
  8. Obey.

comment How can I reduce the repeated code with these tikz nodes?
type texdoc pgf to bring the pgf documentation up and read page 35 (about foreach) and 28 (about style).

It might be worth informing that this blogger does projected animations, but with PSTricks.

comment What is the easiest way to plot a function and its tangent lines at the turning points?
In my opinion, the function should be a polynomial of order 5 because the most right part seems to be concave upward (see the questioner's graph).

comment Check for a valid file before using \includegraphics
Please carefully see the padding on the right of your \framebox, is it equal to the one on the left? I don't think so. The white spaces right after } are also "dangerous".

comment Check for a valid file before using \includegraphics
Be careful with white spaces in your code above and you can use \fcolorbox{<rule color>}{<background color>}{<object>} instead of \framebox{\colorbox{...}}.

@jhstuckey: It should be from 2cm to 2.5cm (in my personal preference).

@jhstuckey: I just copied his margins given in your question. It should not be zero in most cases.
