This is the best example I can give, recognise it as a weapon against humanity and not as truth. Never be afraid to think.



Thanks.

Flat Earth General / Buzz Aldrin on space
« on: July 04, 2017, 06:00:29 AM »
Thought I might start an actual FE thread for a change.



Ok so obviously Buzz is getting older and a lot of these looks are up to speculation, however to me honestly he looked pretty worried, I don't know how else to put it. Especially at the very start of the video.

Obviously it's all over the news cause Trump. Do you guys think there might be something to it? Or just an odd reaction?
I paid particular interest to the reaction when Trump said "I used to say, what happened? Why aren't we moving forward?"

A certain poster keeps threatening to tell people I am mentally ill and that he'll "expose me as crazy."

I'm not ashamed of it. Also kinda renders his threats worthless.

Anyway AMA. Also please keep all insults pertaining to my mental illness here.

Thanks.

Flat Earth General / NASA's hands are filthy.
« on: April 24, 2017, 05:36:25 PM »


This is a weird one, basically an old widower trying to make some cash to support her grandson wants to sell an old moon rock that her husband had being an engineer on the apollo missions.

She tells NASA she has it and they basically sent a SWAT team to retrieve it.

Wtf is up with this, how can they justify treating her like that? What are they so desperately trying to keep out of the publics hands?

Fascinating vid I had to fact check it even tho Tyler is usually pretty good on his research.

Seriously wtf NASA, it just screams secrecy to me. You guys have every right not to trust them, my image of friendly scientists was absolutely shattered by this story.

Discussion moved from S+C.

Snowflake.

The cost of freedom is sometimes people say things we don't like.
Because your freedom is also a restraint for someone else.
just because you have freedom of speech doesn't mean you need to run around and insult people. live is about taking and giving...so is freedom.
Respect should be always in place.

That depends on what one mans' respect is against another mans'.
Sorry, I didn't understand that...but what I mean is...you can't always say anything you want just because you have freedom of speech. You always need to consider if you are offending people with your words, because you are not alone on this world.
It wouldn't be a nice world to live in if we all said ugly things about each other all the time now, would it?

Our right to free speech is a real right and an important freedom.

I don't believe we have the "right" to never feel offended, that's fascism imo.
It is not a right, other than "It is the right thing to do"...be reasonable...don't always insist on what your rights are, but also look around you and take the people around you into account when you are saying or doing something. Respect each other.

Respect is also not a right...but that doesn't mean you should always be disrespectful to anyone, just because it is your right to do so.

Live and let live. There are more important things in live than freedom of speech, such as peace, love and friendship.

Flat Earth General / Did china fake their spacewalk?
« on: April 10, 2017, 07:00:01 PM »

CCTV ran a live broadcast of the Shenzhou VII spacecraft launch to mark the second phase of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s Project 921 at the end of September. This video footage, however, contains many unexplainable physical phenomena. These anomalies from the broadcast, which include bubbles in space, no evidence of the earth’s atmosphere, and the lack of background noise usually hear in space communication, call into question the legitimacy of the mission itself. Upon analyzing this footage, some even suspect the live broadcast was a fraud that employed an analogue video taken under water to simulate conditions in space.

My position is they faked it, NASA and the chevron club won't call them out due to international pressure.

The stadium lights are the smoking gun imo.

It's interesting, what are your opinions?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Artificial Intelligence.
« on: April 06, 2017, 01:26:27 AM »
Quote
Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence exhibited by machines. In computer science, the field of AI research defines itself as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal.[1] Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving" (known as Machine Learning).[2] As machines become increasingly capable, mental facilities once thought to require intelligence are removed from the definition. For instance, optical character recognition is no longer perceived as an example of "artificial intelligence", having become a routine technology.[3] Capabilities currently classified as AI include successfully understanding human speech,[4] competing at a high level in strategic game systems (such as Chess and Go[5]), self-driving cars, intelligent routing in content delivery networks, and interpreting complex data.

Artificial Intelligence, I wanted to discuss whether we will ever be able to create true artificial intelligence.

That is, can we make a machine with will? Could we ever make a machine that could hate? Or love?

This raises further questions as to our true nature and if we are truly greater than the sum of our parts.

My current position is that we will never be able to create artificial intelligence that can touch what we can do.

Sure things like deep blue and other chess programs can play chess better than our GM's but is there a difference to deep blue between winning and losing? Does the computer strive to win or does it just fulfill the script we wrote for it.

In this way we haven't came close to artificial intelligence and personally I believe it is beyond our abilities to create.

Pretty lazy OP, sorry. Hopefully we can get a good discussion going.

I know there are some evangelical atheists here, I'd like them to join in if possible. Athiesm imo dictates that we should be able to create consciousness on a whim.

Flat Earth Debate / Horizon on a FE, Rawr.
« on: March 27, 2017, 06:28:56 PM »
I've been banned on the other fe website for asking these questions.:

On a flat earth , what is the definition of the horizon, where is the horizon, and how would you estimate the distance to the horizon ?
No debate.
Would just like some answers.
No luck so far.

Flat Earth General / Colorado on Mars?
« on: March 13, 2017, 09:14:20 PM »
Check out what I found, this is creepy.





http://instaar.colorado.edu/ArcticConference/abstract_details.php?abstract_id=23

So this is obviously Colorado, is it just a photo shopped picture trying to discredit NASA?

Or something more sinister.

As you all know I am honest and will call BS when I see it. This picture of "Mars" is BS.

Thoughts, opinions, explanations?

Would appreciate the debunkers showing me why this isn't an official NASA image.

If it is that's the lie from NASA a few of you keep asking for.

I'm sorry you all feel I am crazy for my beliefs which I believe I have justified quite well.

I love this site, sorry I made you guys question what you thought you knew.
I was under the impression that's what this site was about.

I would like to offer my most sincere and heartfelt apologies for being born male, and especially being born a white male.

As we all know white males are completely responsible for the colour of our skin and genitalia we were born with, so it's not possible to be racist or sexist against straight white males.

I will help with rounding them up and putting them in cages. (not)

Also I am actually a little triggered (Internet triggered) by "housewife" being called a "consumer", I belive raising children is probably the most important job there is.

There is far more responsibility and skill / patience required to be a mother than a "consumer" I'd call dole-bludgers "consumers".

Why do we suddenly want to destroy even the idea of the traditional family?

Men can do everything women can... except give birth and breast-feed, one of these days we will have to accept the reality of genetic differences.

Anyway

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Master Evars thought experiment.
« on: March 03, 2017, 02:16:23 PM »
So, time to post my calculations:

First, the load can either be perceived to be a point mass, OR have it's center of mass at the specified position. That's where the force will be concentrated in both cases.

Secondly, I'll give the load in mass, it's not what you'd officially do (just like I very much doubt you'd give a load in pressure, like BHS does) but since we're only talking about gravitational laod, and we'll assume a homogenous gravitational field, they'll be proportional anyways. Also, disputeone did it first so I just followed their lead.

So, the load of the floor on each bolt is obviously 25 kg.

Then we add the extra 100kg load. Let's ignore the load of the floor for now. Because the load is static and we'll assume the floor doesn't give or the bolts shear, the sum of the load on all bolts must be 100 kg.

But, the sum off all torques on all bolts must equal 0 kgm (kilogram meters, officially it is Nm, Newton meters), otherwise the floor or the bolts would twist. Torque is calculated around a pivot (can be static/rigid) and an axis by multiplying a force by it's distance to the force at a right angle from the axis you want to calculate the torque around.

As an example, let us take the south bolt, and let us work in one dimension at a time. We'll position ourselves so that we are aligned with the west and east bolt. From this position we can only deal with torque around the west-east axis, or basically torque that goes in a right angle from the west-east axis. The point load is 5+3 meters away from the south bolt, or 8 meters, since we are blind to distances that go west-east. That means that the torque on the south bolt around the west-east axis is 8m*100kg, or 800kgm. The west and east bolt are both 5 meters away, and from this position they will act like a single pivot. This single pivot will add a negative torque to the south bolt of 5*(-Loadwest-Loadeast). The north bolt is 10 meters away and will add a negative torque of 10*(-Loadnorth). The full torque around the west-east axis on the south bolt can be described as:
Torquesouth = 800kgm + 5*(-Loadwest-Loadeast) + 10*(-Loadnorth),
or 800kgm + 5*(-Loadwest-Loadeast) + 10*(-Loadnorth) = 0kgm,
since the torque on the south bolt must be 0 in all axis.

If we gather a few more relationships like these, we can compare them to each other in order to solve for all loads. However, there's a way I thought would be easier. Let's position ourselves so that the south and east bolt are aligned, and the north and west bolt are aligned. They are all evenly spaced along the circumference of a circle, so it is possible. From this northeast-southwest axis, the south and east bolts acts as one pivot and the north and west bolts act as another pivot. All cardinal directions are at a 45° angle to our axis, so we can calculate distances by adding their cardinal components (distance north + distance west - distance south - distance east, in this specific coordinate system) and multiplying with cos(45°).
Let's originate from the southeast pivot. The point mass is 3 meters north and 2 meters west away from from the center of the platform, or cos(45°)*5m. The southeast pivot is also cos(45°)*5m away from the center, but in the other direction. That means that the distance between the point mass and the pivot is 2*cos(45°)*5m, or cos(45°)*10m. That means that the torque is 100kg*cos(45°)*10m, or cos(45°)*1000kgm.
The north-west pivot is also cos(45°)*10m away from the south east pivot, and it's torque would be:
cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadnorth-Loadwest)

So the torque on the southeast pivot is:
Torquesoutheast pivot = cos(45°)*1000kgm + cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadnorth-Loadwest), and because the torque must equal 0:
cos(45°)*1000kgm + cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadnorth-Loadwest) = 0
Or:
cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadnorth-Loadwest) = -cos(45°)*1000kgm
10m*(-Loadnorth-Loadwest) = -1000kgm
(-Loadnorth-Loadwest) = -100kg.
Loadnorth+Loadwest = 100kg.

In order words, the north-west pivot takes all of the load of the 100kg load, because by dumb luck I managed to put it right on top of that pivot, or rather right in between the north and west bolt. That means that the south and east doesn't take any load from the 100kg weight, only the load of the floor.

Now it's easy, we just orient us at a right angle from the north-west axis, so that we have the north bolt, west bolt and the 100kg load in between. I'll calculate torque around the north bolt. Once again, I'll have to transform all directions with cos(45°) multiplied by (distance north - distance west - distance south + distance east).

The north bolt is cos(45°)*-5m away from the center (counting positive directions as towards the west bolt), the load is cos(45°)*(-3+2)m, or cos(45°)*-1m away from the center. The distance between the load and north pivot is therefore cos(45°)*5m-cos(45°)1m, or cos(45°)(5-1)m, or cos(45°)*4m.
The torque is cos(45°)*4m*100kg = cos(45°)*400kgm.

The west bolt is cos(45°)*5m away from the center, or cos(45°)*10m away from the north bolt. the negative torque is:
cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadwest)

The torque around north bolt is therefore:
Torquenorth bolt = cos(45°)*400kgm + cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadwest)
and because torque must be 0:
cos(45°)*400kgm + cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadwest) = 0
Which means:
cos(45°)*10m*(-Loadwest) = -cos(45°)*400kgm
10m*(-Loadwest) = -400kgm
(-Loadwest) = -40kg
Loadwest = 40kg

The west bolt takes 40 kg of the load of the 100kg mass. We know that the south and east doesn't take any of that load, and we know the sum of all loads must be 100kg. So the north bolt must take 60kg of load.

If we add in the 25 kg from the floor, the total loads become:
North: 85kg
East: 65kg
South: 25kg
East: 25kg

That means that even though we doubled the load on the floor, the load on the north bolt more than tripled and the load on the east bolt largely overshot double the load.

Had I placed the load even further northwest, the south and east bolt would experience less load as the north and east bolts acts as a pivot for a lever.

You can try inputting these values from any coordinate system, and it'll hold up. The sum of all torques will be 0, and the sum of all loads are obviously 100kg.

I don't know why BHS is trying to add variable that have nothing to do with this. Probably just as an excuse. As he says, this is pretty low-level for an engineer, but he still thought it's not solvable. Maybe it tells us something of his level?

You said you didn't make wagers with people over the Internet? So i left it alone after that.
Not about money, no. So you're going to cop out now?

As for being above middle school/freshmen math...No I am not above it at all...Math is math. However, from another angle I am above it..Not from a snooty perspective, but from the fact it isn't real world math. It is way to simple, leaves out too many variables. Your numbers gained from this would not reflect in the real world.
Newtons laws of gravitation are simpler. Hell, math-wise special relativity isn't all that bad(some parts of it at least). You need to make a distinction between "reflecting" and "perfectly simulates".

All I asked was questions about the structure, important questions any engineer would ask...Nothing really even complex about them. It is a habit, and natural..When you have my background and have as much skin in the game as I do, you can't help it, it must be real world. It's not like I am some engineer working for a company, there is a boss above me that will check my work before it goes out.
Important for a real building? Of course. Important for this thought experiment? Absolutely not. And they won't change the variables we are after. We don't care about shearing, so we don't need the footprint/dimensions of the load.

It is my business, I am the last one on the totem pole, it makes it by me it's gone. If it has issues, then people could get hurt or killed at the worse, at best I am sued for alot of money my insurance would cover, but would I ever recover from the bad rap? Or would I be forced out of business and all my employees are jobless....Alot of skin in the game every single day.
So far, every source I've looked up agrees with me. Can't you simply admit if it was a mistake?

Yet you take this natural tendency to exist in the real world, ask the correct questions needed for an answer that reflects reality and attempt to twist it. So, yes, I will continue to live in reality nor will I "stoop to your level" as you put it, and I will continue to call your math low brow nor applicable to reality alone. You can yell and point fingers at me all day long, I care not..Nor will I apologize...I will save the apology for when I say something inaccurate.
"Twist it", You're the one twisting MY thought experiment.

Also, I do have a slight feeling telling me you either did the experiment and it didn't turn out the way you wanted, or you know I'm right and you're trying to let the experiment die away.

BHS, I have accepted your bet, as I have already told you, with a proposed stake.

And while I wouldn't exactly call it middle school math... do you think you are above it? Do you think that simple math no longer applies to you? In that case, prove it. You offered to make an experiment, a great chance to prove yourself. Here's not where I learned to do these load distributions, but sources for them:
http://www.brighthubengineering.com/building-construction-design/109683-beam-load-calculations-explained/
https://bendingmomentdiagram.com/tutorials/calculating-reactions-at-supports/
Since we assume that the floor will not shear, we do not need to calculate the shearing force. The source also only dealt with 1 dimension (as in, all load and the pivots was placed along a single one-dimensional straight), while we are dealing with 2 dimensions (our pivots and loads are distributed across a surface).
Haven't you been attacking me and my maths enough already?

You said you didn't make wagers with people over the Internet? So i left it alone after that.

As for being above middle school/freshmen math...No I am not above it at all...Math is math. However, from another angle I am above it..Not from a snooty perspective, but from the fact it isn't real world math. It is way to simple, leaves out too many variables.

I know this is in AR but what Intikam is doing is illegal in most countries, I know no one takes Intikam seriously but he shouldn't be allowed to post threads talking about Rabs execution.

Expecially when he's saying

This is my belief such as day of judgement or the presence of God. I "believe" that tomorrow f**kinoz will get a suicide attack. This is just my belief as believing to God or believing to day of judgement. I'm believing to rabinoz/f**kinoz is "dajjal / antichrist" and a real believer will will cut his antichist /dajjal / liar head at tomorrow, as how I believe to. According to several religinal books, It shall be done like this.

Now I'm not saying Intikam is an Islamic extremist but, wait, that's exactly what I'm saying, Intikam is an islamic extremist. He shouldn't be allowed to post extremist views here.

Encouraging suicide
It is a crime under both QLD and national law to cyber bully someone in a way that intentionally encourages or causes them to kill themselves . The maximum penalty is life imprisonment.

Sandokhan recently brought up a very interesting experiment called the depalma spinning ball experiment.

https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=68459.msg1841779#msg1841779

The experiment basically states that a ball bearing spinning at a high enough rpm will experience a larger gravitational force, that is to say it will fall faster than a ball bearing dropped whilst stationary. This is obviously very interesting.

This is the best link I can find for the supposed experiment.
http://brucedepalma.com/n-machine/spinning-ball-experiment/
The discerning reader will realize very quickly that it is a pseudo-scientific website and I apologize for that.

I would like to do this experiment and see the results for myself. First just at home then depending on the outcome in controlled conditions in a vacuum chamber.

So far we have a very simple hypothesis; that an object with =>18 000 rpm and a weight of over 1kg (Depalma used a 1 inch diameter ball bearing) dropped will fall faster than g.
http://bearingballstore.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=6
http://brucedepalma.com/n-machine/spinning-ball-experiment/

I would like help with a method of dropping / launching both balls / weights / whatever so that the only influence (except the atmosphere) on the fall is g. I know that there's a lot of very intelligent people here and it would be super sweet to do a cool experiment together.

There are no bad ideas, however please, no copy pasta, personal attacks, derailing or trolling. The last thing I want is for this thread to turn into anything like another thread where a scientific experiment was proposed. I think we can do this one relatively cheap and without a great degree of difficulty if we work together on it.

Let's science the shit out of this.

84
I've given the model to a few of my friends studying or who have a degree in maths, they all reckon it checks out.

Curious as to peoples opinions, Aisantanot seems to think he is the one being intellecually honest, which confuses me.

Mods if you wanna move this to AR feel free, I wanted to get a good measure of peoples opinions.

Edit, I messed up the title so bad xD
Should read "Did Totes satisfy the requirements of Aisantanot's challenge."

Don't worry you can edit the titles......

Newton's Third Law

Identifying Action and Reaction Force Pairs

A force is a push or a pull that acts upon an object as a results of its interaction with another object. Forces result from interactions!

Some forces result from contact interactions (normal, frictional, tensional, and applied forces are examples of contact forces) and other forces are the result of action-at-a-distance interactions (gravitational, electrical, and magnetic forces).

According to Newton, whenever objects A and B interact with each other, they exert forces upon each other. When you sit in your chair, your body exerts a downward force on the chair and the chair exerts an upward force on your body.

There are two forces resulting from this interaction - a force on the chair and a force on your body. These two forces are called action and reaction forces and are the subject of Newton's third law of motion. Formally stated, Newton's third law is:

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object. The direction of the force on the first object is opposite to the direction of the force on the second object. Forces always come in pairs - equal and opposite action-reaction force pairs.

 

Examples of Interaction Force Pairs
A variety of action-reaction force pairs are evident in nature. Consider the propulsion of a fish through the water. A fish uses its fins to push water backwards. But a push on the water will only serve to accelerate the water. Since forces result from mutual interactions, the water must also be pushing the fish forwards, propelling the fish through the water. The size of the force on the water equals the size of the force on the fish; the direction of the force on the water (backwards) is opposite the direction of the force on the fish (forwards). For every action, there is an equal (in size) and opposite (in direction) reaction force. Action-reaction force pairs make it possible for fish to swim.

Consider the flying motion of birds. A bird flies by use of its wings. The wings of a bird push air downwards. Since forces result from mutual interactions, the air must also be pushing the bird upwards. The size of the force on the air equals the size of the force on the bird; the direction of the force on the air (downwards) is opposite the direction of the force on the bird (upwards). For every action, there is an equal (in size) and opposite (in direction) reaction. Action-reaction force pairs make it possible for birds to fly.

Consider the motion of a car on the way to school. A car is equipped with wheels that spin. As the wheels spin, they grip the road and push the road backwards. Since forces result from mutual interactions, the road must also be pushing the wheels forward. The size of the force on the road equals the size of the force on the wheels (or car); the direction of the force on the road (backwards) is opposite the direction of the force on the wheels (forwards). For every action, there is an equal (in size) and opposite (in direction) reaction. Action-reaction force pairs make it possible for cars to move along a roadway surface.

Hey guys, so whats with all the satanist hate on this forum?

Please believe me when I tell you the dark lord doesn't care what shape you think the earth is.

The Infernal Prince has no desire to control your thoughts or actions (unlike most deitys). Only that we live a life full of love happiness and free from self constraint while we are on this earth.
