The Lounge / Re: PC repair guys, story time!
« on: August 20, 2019, 10:12:46 PM »
I'm not a pc repair guy, just the occasional troubleshooting or dealing with some malware crap that a couple friends need dealing with sometimes. 

I did get a laptop working once using a nail and a piston. 

(basically just had to crimp down a connector to repair the wiring of the power supply that had worn out.  It wouldn't run without it because the battery wouldn't hold a charge anymore.  Those were the only two items on hand to do it)

And the thought you lived on a sphere earth with gravity pulling to center of mass.
Seriously though, do you understand anything about anything?  So far the answer appears to be no.  You can't even answer my questions.

We know the distance from the north pole to the equator is 10000km (plus a couple more km).

We know the equator is just over 40000km. For a globe Earth that means the radius is 6378km.

If you have a flat Earth with a north pole to equator radius of 10000km then the equator circumference would be 62800km. But it isn't, it's 40000km.
I have brought this up in the past myself.  No answer.  All we get here is Plat Terra and Tom Bishop attempting to derail the thread away from something they can't answer.

I guess Plat Terra doesn't want to answer my questions because they're either too hard, or they're bad for his argument.  I win, Earth is a globe.

No, you haven't. Nothing you have posted has anything to do with an answer that applies to what I asked. You avoid the context and post things that does not pertain to what is asked. It is you who brush it aside with a none direct answer. We know why and so do you.
Speaking of avoiding questions and answers... Can you answer these two questions yet?

When zooming in on a curved line, does the curve of the line appear to lessen?

Along a straight line of sight, things below that line of sight appear to rise to it as distance is increased, and things above it appear to lower to it as distance is increased.  Do you agree with that statement?

Impertinent/don't care. Merely pointing out that things get smaller as they get further away, that 75 foot waves are not necessary, and the "that must be a huge wave to cover that building!!" arguments are in error at their premise.
Tom, you do understand that given an observer with an eye elevation of 6ft, a wave will have to be at least 6ft or higher if it is to block more than 6ft of the land the lighthouse is on right?

Rogers Centre from 6ft above Lake Ontario 30.84 miles away. Alleged curvature should be 516.85 feet of drop. Rogers Centre should not have even been visible according to your 3959 miles radius Earth.
Actually, one will notice that Rogers Center, in that video, appears to have a flat roof, even though it is domed.  The observation deck of the CN tower is also only halfway up even though it is actually about 2/3 of the way up.  What is happening here, is the CN tower appears 'sunken' beyond the horizon due to curvature, and the Rogers Center appears with a flat top because it is below the horizon and refraction makes it appear 'flattened'.  There is also some mirage occurring.  Anyways, nice proof of the globe there.  You have a major problem.

Can you answer my previous two questions?

Even a Zoom lens will bring back what was claimed went over the curve.
No it won't.

Can you answer my last two questions or not?

Wow, that's a nice flat non curved horizon. Thanks for sharing. I will have to add this to my collection.
This reminds me, since you never answered last time I asked...
Are you saying that when zooming in on a curved line, the curve of the line does not appear to lessen?

Another question you didn't answer:
Along a straight line of sight, things below that line of sight appear to rise to it as distance is increased, and things above it appear to lower to it as distance is increased.  Do you agree with that statement?

This post is in reply to most arguments above.  Arguments that have been addressed here at the FE forum many times but ignored.  Please donít ignore the lights of the city at 52.72 miles away. They should be hidden by bulge of water.  And notice there is a horizon and not a curvizon.
Do you know how much should be hidden from view?  Yes, there is a horizon, and no, there's no left to right curve visible, as is expected with a high magnification shot on a globe.

Then Earth must be cylinder shaped. You can't have it both ways.

Our small Sun reaches a point where it can't continue to cast light on the MT
And yet it remains the same size all day.  How high do you think the sun is, and how far away would it need to be to be 1 degree above the horizon?  How far away would it need to be to appear to touch the horizon?

If this was caused by curvature it would happen all the time and everywhere.
It can happen wherever and whenever the clouds are at an elevation just above the top of the mountain, there is a long expanse of lower land to the east or west, and clear skies farther away.  There are pictures of the same thing happening at Mt. Shasta, Glacier peak, Mt. Baker, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Mcloughlin, and probably others elsewhere.

Not all the time everywhere.
I know, hence the parameters I mentioned.

Did you know there's a difference between the drop vs the hidden height?  The hidden height is not 1,802ft.

The zigzag I was talking about was your rambling some time ago about how the sun would move back and forth in the video in the arctic circle tracking it for 24hours.

So, what do you have to say on this???
Ok, you don't understand how eclipses work.

I feel somewhat responsible now for this derailing.  I should start another thread on it.  Or you can start one if you want.  Whatever.

Surface mirages can obscure the bottom part of a boat on a humid day.

Atmospheric condition can give the appearance of a lower horizon, while blocking the horizon.
While I have seen a timelapse taken from close to the surface of the horizon moving up or down slightly due to shifting temperature layers, it is not blocked.
In conditions with no, or very little, mirage or refraction, the entire object is apparently lowered toward the horizon with the bottom obscured.  One can then raise their viewing elevation and see the obscured parts.  The parts of the object however that are well above the horizon are not distorted like lower areas that are affected by the mirage or refraction.  This fits the globe, not the flat Earth.

Perspective. Even a taller mountain off in a distance is going to appear smaller than closer ones, even on a Plane Earth.
I'm not talking about them appearing smaller, I'm talking about points at a specific elevation appearing below a straight line of sight along that same elevation. 

Along a straight line of sight, things below that line of sight appear to rise to it as distance is increased, and things above it appear to lower to it as distance is increased.  Do you agree with that statement?

This question is asked of all here who believe Earth is a Sphere of any type. This all has to do with a reply Rabinoz posted to me.

Speaking of the surface of this Earth, what have you observed that proves to you Earth is a sphere?
The horizon and things disappearing from the bottom up beyond it.
The horizon below eye level as one increases elevation.
Known elevations of distant hills appearing below closer hills/objects of the same elevation when viewed along a straight line of sight from that same elevation.
Level stretches of bridges or powerlines curving over a distance.

The readers seeking truth know where you've been nailed, and that's what matters.  You even know where you've been nailed but can't admit it openly.

The readers who actually understand how things work are laughing at you, and that's what matters.  You even know why you're being laughed at, but can't admit it openly.

I'm not going to go through 15 pages right now, but since cikljamas used to regularly derail his own derails, has his classic "zigzag" bs come up yet?

You still don't get it, southern Louisiana shorelines are horizontal and can't meet a curved Ocean. And You still can't flood a sphere. All of Southerns Louisiana is below the curve that why it floods. We haven't talked about all the horizontal shorelines on this Earth which is not possible with your theory. Horizontal shorelines can't meet a curved ocean.   You can't win, but you are a pro.
On the curved surface of the globe, a point on the surface miles away from another point, will have the same elevation.  And yet, you claim one point would be the top and everything is downhill from there.

You have no argument.  Learn how the globe works.

I do suggest that some of you here take a breath and a break and think about a few things. Take some time and use your imagination to see the lie you have been feed through media and the deceitful governmentís agenda.
https://i.imgur.com/JrIwl9h.jpg
You don't seem to understand that 3 miles away, where the surface has curved away 6", that it is still the same elevation as where you are standing.  At 6 miles where it was curved away 24".... still the same elevation.

One can also involve several people over a very wide area for better accuracy.

In the mean time. you should actually try to verify the surface curvature of any landmass or canal. You might be a hero!
And I suggest in the mean time, you actually learn how curvature and elevation work.  "Sea-level" is an elevation of 'zero' that follows Earth's curvature through land, not an elevation that runs in a straight tangent between coasts.

You lose.

What's your next question that you don't understand?

On a Globe the Sun can't rise exactly straight due East for everyone on the equinox.  The Sun Arcs for everyone except for those on the equator.
Actually it does rise due East and sets due West despite having a arced path through the sky for latitudes away from the equator.  The observation is being made at 'sunrist' and 'sunset', not 'before' or 'after'.
As for an experiment regarding sun and shadow angles, here.  Globe proven.

There is no curvature engineered into the Panama Canal. But when you add curvature it becomes flooded.






This is why you're a flat Earther.  You don't understand the subject you're arguing about.  85ft above sea level, means it's 85 feet above sea level.

I have many feral rocks around my property.  I caught one and tamed it.  Drew some eyes on it with a marker.  It talks to me when it feels like it.

Applying actual perspective and optics, it is obvious it only works on a globe.  Using flerspective and floptics, it's flat..... somehow.
