Consider a discrete set of ##k## points.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First, is it a manifold? I know that a manifold is a topological space that contains a neighborhood homeomorphic to Euclidean space for each point. Can we just consider each point's neighborhood to be a set containing only that point?

Second, would the structure be orientable for ##k>2##?
