Nasa selects landing site for Moon rover mission:

We will finally find out if Moon really is made of cheese.

The Lounge / For an idiot, New England, or the South?
« on: July 28, 2021, 07:18:03 AM »
I've done the usual, NY, LA, Las Vegas, San Francisco, then Philadelphia, and "crappier" places like Cumberland County, NJ, and Atlantic City.

I do like Lovecraft a lot, but, as a Nordic person, the South does intrigue me, Carolinas (though maybe better venture further inland) possibly, but maybe not New Orleans.

Or would it be nice to try the Midwest?

I am fully aware of the distances, the time it takes to move around. Still, as I believe quite many here are from the US, I imagine some might have ideas.

I travel light, and usually prefer just walking around, stopping by small shops and such to visiting any bigger attractions.

It went to Rome. I am happy. And as Argentina won as well, it has been good.

Flat Earth General / Flat Earth Simulator

Reviews currently at "mixed".

What do the FE here think of the product? Is it something you can agree with, or is The Truthtellers controlled opposition or some such?

Who of the many wealthy professionals of the FE school have already booked a seat?

Flat Earth General / A poll: Which FE model is the right one

Let’s find out which FE model has the most supporters.

This is interesting:

Would be massive if it holds water. Have to wait and see.

Flat Earth General / Is this the end of FE?
« on: November 04, 2019, 10:21:55 AM »
Mostly a question for longer standing members here.

I, myself, do not remember FE side being this badly represented. Is it just me, or has the quality of FE argumentation gone down?

Could be just that my perception is warped, but wanted to hear from others.

Oh, and not the end of FE in general as I am sure there are still others out there fighting the good fight. But when it comes to this forum.

Flat Earth General / Steven Novella’s take on FE believers
« on: October 15, 2019, 07:21:06 AM »
On 3 May 2018, Steven Novella analyzed the modern belief in a flat Earth, and concluded that, despite what most people think about the subject, the believers are being sincere in their belief that the Earth is flat, and are not "just saying that to wind us up". He stated that:

In the end that is the core malfunction of the flat-earthers, and the modern populist rejection of expertise in general. It is a horrifically simplistic view of the world that ignores (partly out of ignorance, and partly out of motivated reasoning) to [sic] real complexities of our civilization. It is ultimately lazy, childish, and self-indulgent, resulting in a profound level of ignorance drowning in motivated reasoning.

Is this just another representative of the conspiracy, another so-called expert trying to make FE believers look bad, or is there truth in what he says?

EDIT: I am not, for some reason, able to apply italics to the first two paragraphs. Sorry for that. (Fixed now.)

The Lounge / The Joker

Anyone seen it yet?

I think it was almost a masterpiece. Could have been fifteen minutes or so shorter, but other than that the film is close to perfection. I do still like Heath, but Joaquin was tremendously good and tormented.

It is a harsh and hard film to watch. It is not ”fun”. And to me it was a proper DC Comics movie. The first proper Batman story I read was The Killing Joke, so that set the bar for me.


Nasa is to allow tourists to visit the International Space Station from 2020, priced at $35,000 (£27,500) per night.

Flat Earth General / Here be dragons

”On Saturday, the spacecraft has no crew, but it sets up a near future with astronauts traveling to orbit from the United States again.”

Flat Earth General / Stephen Hawking, 1942-2018

A great loss.

I am saddened, although I am sure it was not easy for him or his family during his last years.
