    as long as f(x) is continuous and differentiable, \[\int\limits_{- \infty}^{\infty}f(x)dx\] is there ever a time we woukd not choose 0 as c in\[\int\limits_{- \infty}^{c} f(x) dx + \int\limits_{c}^{\infty} f(x) dx\]

    It's possible that a function is not differentiable at multiple points. Then you would continue to break it up like you've show above and take the limit wherever it is discontinuous.
