Yes, it was a little bit frustrating, that everything worked on numbers and=
 then it unexpectedly stuck on dates.. This case with endless ranges should=
 be at least somehow mentioned in `include?` documentation, I think. Now it=
 doesn't seem very clear [here](https://ruby-doc.org/core-2.7.1/Range.html#=
method-i-include-3F).


----------------------------------------
Bug #17409: Endless range of dates stuck on include? when miss
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/17409#change-89357

* Author: gsmetal (Sergey G)
* Status: Rejected
* Priority: Normal
* ruby -v: ruby 2.7.1p83 (2020-03-31 revision a0c7c23c9c) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN, 2.7: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
This code stucks (on latest ruby 2.7.1):
```ruby
require 'date'

(Date.today..).include?(Date.today - 1)
```

But it works well with `cover?`:
```ruby
2.7.1 :001 > require 'date'
 =3D> true =

2.7.1 :002 > (Date.today..).cover?(Date.today - 1)
 =3D> false =

```
