Title: About this "Ice Wall"
Post by: Round Eye on October 12, 2006, 06:56:35 PM
Here's a question for all the Admins of this forum, mods of this forum, and firm believers of this theory. Have any of you actually tried to go to the "Ice Wall"? What proof do you have that would support your claim that the government is keeping the public away from it? I would like to see some evidence before I'm even a 1% believer of this theory, please.

None of these people have even tried. They just sit on their couch and believe it so. People who don't try shouldn't believe such a thing.

I am going to the ice walls. To take pictures of their transparent nature. That way everyone can look at  a plain of snow and I can tell them that there actually is a wall of ice there.

look, what you propose is stupid.  if we DO go to the ice wall to try and prove it to all you n00bs who say "pewpew icewall go lolzbbq"  then we'll get caught and killed by the icewall guards wont we?  if you dont beleive there is a wall then i grant you on a safe journy there and return, but i wont join you cause i dont want to die.

I totally agree on that one.
I used to work as an icewall guard. It was good money, though damn cold and boring. From time to time some polar scientists somehow make it to the icewall. We'll then have some fun shooting at them, but the die way too fast and then it's boring again.

Oh, and i can tell you. After 5 years of penguin and fish you get insane. Those damn penguins. Maybe naxt time I'll make a request that the invent something new. I mean penguins are outdated russian crap from 1960 or so.

Oh, and for all of you that want proof of the ice wall: I've taken a little souvenir from my last duty. It's some of the icewall ice. It's in my fridge.

But please don't tell anybody. Otherwise the secret goverment might kill me.

Dude, if EVERYONE who goes to see it gets killed, how do you even know there ARE guards?

Stationing guards around the whole world 24 hrs a day, yeah that makes sense.

Hey, I just though of something though. If the edge of the world is cold for being farther from the sun, fine, I'll accept that. But why why would the ice pack up as a wall all over? There's no reason for that.

Damn straight!!
 The Icewall totally "Rocks"! It has the best Casinos and Stripclubs ever.But these are only for CC Elite and designated "guests".
 Too bad they don't open smaller ones for the the boored, underpaid, underfed Guards. Or a whore house, at least...Maybe it'll come up at the next Quarterly Meeting?

So, just out of curiosity.  Let's say all of this is true.  After the guards kill someone, what do they do to cover it up?  If someone tells their families, friends, coworkers, bosses, barbers, and whoever else they might know that they are going to the edge of the world to check it out.  Do the guards say that they got eaten by a seal or froze to death or something?  I'd think that people would catch on to it after hearing a few people died going to antartica or whatever.  Are you just saying that people not in the government are murdered if they see this wall?  That's a lot of people I'd think.  Why would anyone be that paranoid about life?

OK

 Here's a simplified scenario:
Act 1;Somewhere,

Intrepid Explorer  " Hey, I'm off to the Ice Wall etc..I'll bring back proof."

Friends/ Family(thorughly indoctrinated in RET)  " Right, you fucking Loony! etc..."

Act 2; near the Ice Wall

Intrepid Explorer  " Hey, I think I see the Ice Wall from h... urkxssss. (keels over from fatal wound via gunshot or other lethal weaponry. As do any and all companions. )  

IceWall Guard #1 " Wow." .

IceWall Guard #2 "Yea."

IceWall Guard #1 "That was cool."

IceWall Guard #2 "Not bad."

IceWall Guard #1 "I'm bored, again"

IceWall Guard #2 "Me too."

IceWall Guard #1 "We could watch the genetically engineered mutant penguins eat that poor intrepid explorer et al."

IceWall Guard #2 " True, but don't that make the penguins taste like human when we eat them later?"

IceWall Guard #1 " Right. We should just skip the middle man then?"

IceWall Guard #2 "Long Pork might be a nice change from fish or fowl or those MREs?"

Act 3; Somewhere(6 months later)

Friends/ Family "Hey, whatever happened to old Intrepid Explorer?"

Official Looking Mesenger "Intrepid Explorer has been lost at sea or some other reasonable explanation more to your liking... Sorry."


Act 4; Somewhere (years later, Intrepid Explorer is declared Legally Dead)

Friends/ Family "Hey, whatever, old Intrepid Explorer was a fucking Loony, anyway?"

because if there werent guards then they'd survive to come back and tell us wouldnt they?

It would be far simpler to just have an automatic sentry system present, i.e. motion sensing machine gun emplacements, or a huge electric fence say a kilometer before you get to the ice wall? lol.

well no, not really.  people could still run away from the sentry guns or an electric fence and then alert other people of its existance.  people are the only thing that could chase down and kill another human effectively.

Run away from a sentry gun???!!!!! If you can avoid automatic targetting by running, then you deserve a flat earth for yourself (or you're in a james Bond movie :D  )

And don't you think they'd be smart enough to actually put the guns in place BEFORE the ice wall is withing easy reach and sight? If you want to stop someone from getting into a safe, you don't put the guns IN the safe, that just lets people actually get in.

Was that the dogs trained to carry mines on their backs and detonate them underneath the tanks?

"OK Laika, go get the food.Good dog ..... Nyet, nyet! Bad dog..." BOOM

You gotta love those crazy Russian ideas.
 

So the pencil analog is shot down by digital...... Ok. Example DQed
'Twas a mere inference point for extrapolating a non-photo property ascribed to the IceWall as a convenient way to account for purported "actual photos".
What the exact composition and inherent properties of the IceWall are remains to be seen and, of course, debated.

Of course, stationary auto-targeting gun emplacements are along the smaller perimeter line of the frozen Southern Ring continent coastline, thus, nowhere near the IceWall at the outer Disk Edge; 1300+ miles further South.  
Anyone with full ambulatory capacity can out run a gun. It's the round(s) fired from said gun that poses potential problems.
Which is why I recommend Smart Assault Technologies' new NT full-body variable-density aramid exosuit w/ IR recycling, dynamic optical cammo.
 
The actual human "Guards" are easy to avoid. They are routinely cold, hungry, tired and bored shitless from the monotony therefore mostly quite slow and inattentive. Plus, the probability of "live fire" action is very low; How often does an Intrepid Explorer come along?

The Mutant dogs, etc. pose greater threat potential as these exhibit much wider range of sensory input for detection of anamolous data.
Except those rooskie penguins; which are more a nuisance, though, they do make for a decent meal after a long day of trudging across the frozen wastes. Yummy.  
 
Semper Fi.  Keep yer ass down and yer powder dry.

Sorry. You don't have proper clearence; I could tell you, but, ....

      And how do you apply for ice guard wall position?

Well, as it is  "IceWall Guard" and I did note them as slow and inattentive; I guess you qual there.

The prob w/ serreptitious photojournalism(spying), is that it's usually punishable by death if you are caught.They aren't that inattentive.

Even if you get some good shots; how do you transmit past the jamming? And, if you happen to smuggle the data out by hand; international customs is ,of course, part of the Conspiracy. Remember?
So, grab yer ankles and smile, and pray that you have enough currency somewhere, or can sacrifice a kidney, eye, etc to bribe your way out of this.

I'll put in a favorable word for you, but, I can't guarantee anything.. Good luck.

if there is more than one person (as most expiditions have) theres a high likelyhood that at least a few people will escape, depending on the deployment of the guns i suppose.  humans are much more effective.

Hey, here's an AWESOME idea! Since the icewall "clearly exists" and since anyone who goes to see it for themselves "clearly gets shot" how about we wage WAR on the icewall guards??? Our names will always be remembered thereafter; we'll just call ourselves "The Flat Earth Liberators" - hell, even the name sounds worthy!
We'll just shoot icewall guards for a while, take the pictures and get the hell out of there! The government can't really do anything since sending more troups down there would DEFINITELY stir some media attention and then everyone would go to see this AMAZING ICEWALL that nobody had ever seen but yet exists!

Recruits have already signed up saying "Wow, that's the best name I've heard!" So shut up. We are going to the icewall. Just stay posted and you will see the pictures soon.
I wasn't on anything. It was enough for me to read your posts about how you work with "mentally-challenged people" and help humanity and then again how you swear at everyone around you and it gave me a sort of high... i can't explain.

PS: Do you have ANY PROOF that my concept is ridiculous? That is the favorite question of this forum anyway you fool.
