Bitch in front of me stuffs her car in the blue spot. No handicap license plate, no rear view mirror placard. 

Kwnt.

I parked behind her SUV while she got out of her car and skipped into the store.
I finish shopping and come out to find her spinning tight circles and spewing vulgarities.

I told her she could call the police and receive a $275 fine or give me $60.

She pouted a few minutes and then paid me.   ;D

Did the 4" nails she propped under your car wheels puncture all four of them?

Phew = 3.14159 👌

Now that's getting closer to 3.1415926535

Oh, look. A simple search revealed the following;

The Mars Curiosity Rover Wheels and Legs

The Mars Science Laboratory has six wheels, each with its own individual motor.

The two front and two rear wheels also have individual steering motors (one each). This steering capability allows the vehicle to turn in place, a full 360 degrees. The four-wheel steering also allows the rover to swerve and curve, making arching turns.

Now, what is it you don't understand about wheels and motors?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Neowise
« on: July 28, 2020, 06:07:10 AM »

My house faces south and this comet is on the north side. When I go out in the evening, it does not attract my attention. There is no reason for me to trust you Jimmy, nor another globularist. The fact that a true flat earther sees this increases the reality of the claim. Right now, everything is claim in my side. I can't say whether it's wrong or true. I'm just questioning.

My house faces West. I can leave by the back door (facing East) and turn left to see the comet.

Neowise is quite dim but not as dim as Wise.

Does Wise have a car?

Did the sale documents specifically include wheel-nuts?

Have the wheels fallen off yet?

It looks like you are calculating the shaded volume as a cube with a cylindrical void in it and not a cube with a spherical void.

I don't have much hair on the top of my head but I do wear a wide brimmed hat which seems to be able to support the stack without buckling.

if gravity existed, the front part of the arrow will dip -- whatever the initial angle is
WHY?
You are yet to establish any part of this in any way.

Any force will give target at the lighter object more than the more weight one.
Except when the force is based upon weight.

What more can I explain to you??

Why you think arrows are lighter in the front than in the back.

Okay, the back side is lighter. But the case will be the same.

ARROWS HEAVIER AT THE BACK TILTED UP PROVE DUD!

Oops.

ARROWS LIGHTER AT THE BACK TILTED UP PROVE DUD!

You can't have it both ways.

Any design of arrow is okay for DUD. Either arrow's weight point is at the front or at the back, no problemo. The angle will not change significantly. Because there is no 👉 gravity.
You have no idea about archery.
These arrows are shot at a good angle upwards https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clout_archery
And they land at an angle downwards (stuck in the ground)
Quite a significant change of angle.

Then I need a video describing such phenomenon if you have a link.

It goes on a bit but you can clearly see the upwards angle they're shooting and toward the end you can see the downward angle the arrows have impacted the ground.

It's Russia.

The Vikings were renowned for rowing their boats and "Russ" is the name for the action of rowing.

My cell phone knows where it is, even with the GPS turned off.
Out at sea beyond the range of the cell phone towers it won't be able to determine its position.

Haven't the Clipper Race yachts gone a long way south https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/race/standings
I'd like to see those tracks plotted on a flat earth map.

The crow's nest is designed to look over the bow of distant ships identifying individuals aboard as friend or foe.  The height of the nest improves the ultimate safety of the crew and vessel.

Obviously, people who sail the sea are aware the Earth is flat.  They observe and commit to the fact of a flat horizon recognizing variance in the atmoplane causing inconsistency when attempting mathematical application to stated observations.

Round Earth believers are sadly mistaken in their claims relative to the horizon and have plenty of opportunities to inquire with the sea faring community to confirm FE claims.     
Wrong on all counts!

In particular, the fact that the earth is a globe is used to determine distance off when observing the loom of a lighthouse changing to the blink of a rising light http://www.sailtrain.co.uk/navigation/rising.htm

Flat Earth General / Re: Are Flat Earthers Bad in Mathematics?
« on: October 29, 2017, 10:56:59 AM »
Not only bad at maths, none of them seem capable of performing and reporting the results of simple observations;

Posted on the other site;
No one else observed the sun's elevation at the solstice?

The geometry is quite interesting. I'm about 77.25 North of the Tropic of Capricorn. Each degree is 60 Nautical miles which works out that I'm 5334 miles North of the Tropic of Capricorn. Using trigonometry to calculate the vertical height of the sun above the Tropic on a flat plane, 5334*tan(13) = 1234. That doesn't fit with a 3000 mile height of the sun above a flat plane!
The 13 elevation does fit with the 77 angle between the Tropic and my location on a globe with a far distant sun (ok, I might have been 1/4 of a degree off in my measurement of the sun's elevation)


Observations and calculations poke great big holes in their beliefs.

To add to the FE shame, there's also the Clipper round the world race currently sailing into Cape Town from Uruguay.
Position of each yacht is reported on http://clipperroundtheworld.com/race/standings

Twelve months have passed and still Scepti hasn't answered questions about denpressure in a bottle;
https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=67582.msg1823650#msg1823650

How does it know which way to push in a sealed bottle when it is being tipped over?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: International Space Station Sightings

I personally think that what we see at night are some kind of spy drones that can take pics of earth and then when people do some work on them. BOOM! Legit photo of globe Earth. Gps and radio works with towers on earth. IF THERE WERE SATELITES THEN WHY WHEN YOU ARE IN THE OCEAN, THERE IS NO GPS AND INTERNET. Oh! I know why! BECAUSE THERE ARE NO TOWERS NEAR
You've obviously never been out in the ocean and you don't know what you're wittering about.

As one moves south into Antarctica and away from the path of the sun, the temperatures continue to drop.  Eventually, it is so cold that gases, such as nitrogen and oxygen become so cold that they liquify and precipate out of the sky.  At the "edge" of the Earth, there simply are no gases left to spill over the edge.

So, have you been there and seen this?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Question regarding the Coriolis Effect
« on: March 30, 2017, 02:59:06 PM »
You can direcly experience the Coriolis Effect yourself

http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=63831.msg1696656#msg1696656

It's just a conservation of angular momentum effect but it's great fun to feel it yourself.

Flat Earth General / Re: Experimental demonstration for tides
« on: March 16, 2017, 11:39:43 AM »
In addition to two tides a day we also get Spring tides when the Sun, Moon and Earth are in alignment (full moon or new moon) and we get Neap tides when the Sun, Moon and Earth form a right angle (quarter moon)

26
So you have been over there then?
Of course. It was shit!
Exactly like your website.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Distances on Flat Earth Map
« on: February 17, 2017, 12:46:07 PM »
The distances for Australia are not inaccurately depicted on Gleason's.

The distances are accurate on Gleason's.

Just because flight times are different does not mean the distances are different.
Jacksonville & San Diego in America and Sydney & Perth in Australia are examples that prove the Gleason map is not a map to be used for navigation. The pairs of cities in America are approximately 30 north of the equator while the Australian cities are approximately 30 south. Both pairs are separated by 35 of longitude and lo and behold, both pairs are approximately the same distance apart. The Gleason azimuth projection map distorts the size of Australia to about twice the width of America.
Gleason's map is just a Longitude and time zone ready reckoner.

It serves as yet another reason any thinking sailor since the dawn of time has known - the Earth is Flat.

Have you ever met any sailors?

We find it a great source of humour that there are some people that think the Earth is flat.

  • Our charts are Mercator projections of the globe.
  • We use the rising/dipping distances of lighthouses to determine distance off when position fixing.
  • We use celestial navigation techniques.

None of the above could work on a flat earth.

Keep up the comedy :-)

What is FEB and what are you using?

how do you calculate?
Spoiler alert:  He doesn't.

It seems that none of the FEB's do any observation or calculation

. . . if you were to go on a long sea voyage, which I think would do you some good, would you take;
A) maps, flat or otherwise, according to flat earth belief.
B) maps according to main stream spherical earth belief



I just got back from a couple of days fishing 85 miles offshore.
The boat was at sea level the whole time. Basically flat.

So, A) maps (charts), flat or otherwise, according to flat earth belief.

Were you just a passenger? Did you get to look at any of the charts? Especially the part of the key where it states "Projection: Mercator."
Did you notice landmarks dipping below the horizon while on your outbound voyage and then rising while on your return?
