Oh, where are you going to get that from?
Is it to replace your usual really tiny one?

##### Flat Earth Debate / Re: Lighthouse dipping lights
« on: February 09, 2021, 09:39:16 AM »
There's no strawman.
It's pretty simple for anyone that can understand how a sphere should work in terms of what would be seen for a person who is looking into distance.
Basically you are seeing no lighthouse from a distance, on a sphere. But we do see them. We see them because we are not looking at lighthouses over a sphere.

Anyone with a small amount of logic would know that a person who was supposedly on a sphere looking at an object in the distance would not only be tilted back, so would the object.

It really doesn't matter about the size of the so called sphere. This is why I mentioned about the 8 inches per mile squared, just to make sure you people went along with it.

As for any dipping of lights...it would just make the situation worse if it was a sphere.

The absolute reality is, you can't see a lighthouse or buildings in the distance because we are not looking from a spherical point of view. We are looking from a near level point of view on water.

You see, even if you went higher you go all the more tilted away from the lighthouse/building...if you were looking from a sphere. You would still see nothing and basically just see sky.

People are willing to throw logic out of the window in favour of seeing over curves. It's absolutely madness.
Have you ever seen a lighthouse from aboard a boat?

The rising/dipping of lighthouses can be used to determine the distance between the vessel and the lighthouse.

As for the tilting away, the distance between the observer and the lighthouse would have to be 60 nautical miles for the tilt to be 1 degree. Not many lighthouses are visible at 60 nautical miles. You would find it difficult to detect a 1 degree tilt away of an object at the far end of your table never mind an object 60 nautical miles away.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

##### Flat Earth Debate / Re: Distance To The Horizon Computations : Round Earth-vs-Flat Earth
« on: November 12, 2017, 02:36:12 PM »
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.

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.

##### Flat Earth Debate / Re: Can you please explain how flat earth can be possible?
« on: July 09, 2017, 09:55:04 AM »
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?

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

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)

##### 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 :-)
