Flat Earth Q&A / Re: The Coriolis Effect?
« on: October 16, 2010, 04:13:19 PM »
Oh thanks, it seems the Coriolis Effect does in fact pretty much prove that the earth is round and rotating. Did that guy get the $5,000 reward that was promised?

No I did not. They seemed to avoid it like the plague or used half assed explanations.

I support it the bill, should be enforced everywhere. Also need more Border Patrol Agents. It's sad really how much crime is coming from Mexico, as well as drugs.

How is that racially provocative? I can't dislike organizations now without being discriminatory? So if I hate the government, I hate black people because we have a black president  ???

Society blows in this day and age.

Just for future reference, taking anything Clocktower says or does seriously is folly.

I find this true a lot of the time...

Anyway, back to the OP. I think homeopathy should be moved to pseudoscience instead of "alternative medicine". Legit alternative medicine like acupuncture shouldn't be lumped in with that sort of crap.

Acupuncture... legit...

lolwat

Maybe you should read up on acupuncture. Air Force medics are being trained in it. Acupuncture releases endorphins that ease pain and inflammation. It's relatively easy to carry around and fast to use on the field.

Acupuncture is wrong in the sense of the "chi" or whatever it's called.

Interesting reading - http://science.ksc.nasa.gov/shuttle/nexgen/Nexgen_Downloads/Butts_NASA%27s_Joint_Cost-Schedule_Paradox_-_A_History_of_Denial.pdf
 And Tom is as ignorant as ever.

Yeah, I have a hard time believing that a lunar module would cost 6 billion dollars for one use. Half of it even stays on the lunar surface.
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/history/apollo/index.html
-19.5 billion dollars roughly.

And seeing as there were 12 made and launched (maybe more, but roughly 12) the total cost of the Apollo program would be sky high.

If you want to look at the technology used Tom, look at the command module. That is scientific engineering at it's best.

Hey Tom, can you find the source where it states the moon landing module for Apollo 11 cost 6 billion dollars?

Apparently the 2 Einsteins existed at the same time.

Hawking was born on January 8, 1942. Einstein died in '55.

Who cares about Hawking?

Steven Hawkins is Einstein II
Hmm. A lawyer this time? http://www.answers.com/topic/steven-hawkins

Einstein has found a new love in life. The NAACP. We're screwed everyone.

For years I have struggled with the NASA website
Understanding why they are so happy to share these pictures of 'space' freely
Collecting data and pictures from all over 'space'
Killing off our doubt ::)
You will all look at these pictures like me and think maybe they are made on a computer somewhere
Or, drawn by a talent artist who is sat somewhere
Under a tree drawing galaxies and solar systems before posting them onto the website

I just think people are a little too easy to believe in all of this government rubbish

and I find it troubling that it's so easy for you to dismiss NASA's documented data. Reality to buff, come in buff. This is reality--it seems buff has lost contact with us, presumed lost.

While I hold that space travel is inherently impossible; I do believe that the Hubble exists in some form.

The images from the Hubble are coming from a pseudolite; a faux satellite.

Psudolites can take many forms. There are several ways NASA can get a large telescope to near-space, above the bulk of the earth's atmosphere.

For example, over the last several decades the government has been researching the development of large telescopes suspended by high altitude dirigibles, which are able to bring telescopes right up to the edge of the atmosphere. The BLAST project is an example of one:

http://blastexperiment.info/index.php

Also, a number of years ago NASA disclosed that it had been putting heavy R&D into the possibility of telescopes mounted on planes. The SOFIA project is an example of one such telescope in operation:

http://www.space.com/searchforlife/seti_devore_sofia_020509.html
 Hubble is up there already 20 years. All your alternatives require some continuous fuel transport to the carrier which carries the Hubble telescope or that the Hubble telescope lands and takes up again in regular intervals. It's more ridiculous idea than the orbiting satellite.

Even on a Round Earth where space travel is possible, it's much cheaper to put a telescope on a high altitude balloon or even on a plane than to launch and maintain a satellite.

That's why there are thousands of high altitude balloons in the sky, right? Short term it's cheaper, but long term the satellite gives you more bang for your buck.

Also, Hubble/satellites have done some extraordinary findings that atmospheric telescopes and company would have a hard time doing because of the atmosphere.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Flat Earth theory still makes little sense
« on: September 30, 2010, 02:53:28 PM »
The Earth is only infinite along the horizontal plane, not the vertical.

Polaris appearing to get higher is completely ridiculous. You think you can walk a few miles and there will be a difference in how far away a star that is many light years away?

You really need to read the FAQ and lurk. This posts show that you understand next to nothing about FET.

So if the Earth is infinite along the horizontal plane, how does the sun revolve around it? Secondly, you've misunderstood my posts. Thirdly, I've read your FAQ. Why am I here? Because I read your FAQ and nothing makes sense. But hey, thanks for trying. You're the first person to have given a reply that didn't consist of "You're wrong" and nothing else.

The obvious answer is there are infinite suns!

Thanks Berny, I have one that supports it!!!
http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200502/full-moon-crazy

J/k actually, however I want to point this out to the FE'ers out there.

'Kelly also cites what psychologists call confirmation bias, selective thinking whereby we seek out information that confirms our beliefs and ignore evidence that challenges them. Says Kelly, "Some beliefs are just exciting to hold, whatever the evidence."'

I'd also like to conclude that when there is a full moon there is more crime. So obviously the moon makes people crazy!!!!!!

In retrospect, did you really pay the 40 bucks to read it, or did you just read the overview?

Well Tom Bishop, if you plan on establishing a University you better take down the evil conspiracies. How do you plan on educating "the unspoken word" without taking down NASA, the government and many corporate businesses in on the conspiracy(ies)?

Berny, why don't you read all the posts and not pick out specific stuff. I went over all of what you asked in previous posts. Rifling, fins, artillery, and why artillery doesn't use rifling anymore.

And believe it or not, Weather is a big part of the Coriolis effect. All I can say is, go back and "lurk moar" as the FE'ers say...but don't lurk in the FAQ, rather my thread because in the ladder I actually go in depth with my reasoning.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Beautiful timelapse of the night sky
« on: September 25, 2010, 06:32:44 PM »
Ok jeez I misread it. Yes, anything that you can see with the naked eye is in the Milky Way, but there is a galactic plane, and the objects that fall outside of that are not in the Milky Way (the ones you can't see.)

Also incorrect.

So you are saying if I have a telescope and look at M31 (Andromeda), that a galaxy lies within a galaxy?  ???   You've stated that you have seen M31, Parsifal.

However the Round Earthers will tell you that it is in fact the milky way. The very galactic plane on which our solar system resides, along with all the others in our galaxy. It should be visible from everywhere, so very fact you cannot see it raises its own questions about RE ideas.

OK, I'll bite.  You do realize that every star that you see in the night sky is in the Milky Way, don't you?

Nope, thats not right. There is a the galactic plane where the stars are located in the Milky Way. Anything else lies in another galaxy.
Sorry, I just had to point that out  :P   Carry on.

So he can work in a variety of industries and not just one.  There is nothing worse than your manager knowing nothing about your job.  I mean, what if you get a job managing a bunch of artists at a video game company?  Without any knowledge about art, you're less effective at managing them than someone who does have knowledge of art.  Especially when you have to tell them what to do.

Well rounded means you can fit into many areas and not just one.

So colleges in the United States should put all of its business students through advanced Nuclear Physics too, right? I mean, what if they got a job at nuclear power plant.

Should business students be computer science experts as well? Who knows if any of them will be managing an IT department someday.

Maybe they should take history just in case they're ever expected to manage a museum...

Tom, I think you have the words "businessman" and entrepreneur mixed up. Sure, the entrepreneur can get high with relatively minimal classes in a college, but his chances of doing it are dramatically decreased. If he DOES reach the top, then his focus is to educate himself. He can't manage a top level company with minimal education in math, history and the arts. This doesn't really apply to small business owners, but it can. Half of business...no more of that is "on the fly". If a prospective client comes in and wants to invest, simply showing him the black and white of the business surely won't get him to invest. You need to find what he loves and try and use that to your advantage...and it won't go very well if you've educated yourself one dimensionally.

Also, businesses and entrepreneurs are encouraged to think "outside of the box". How can you get more people to invest/buy your product? A person with 100% business associated skills isn't going to do as well as a guy with history, psychology and art under his belt. Business is relating to people. If you want to be a gray, one dimensional blob go be a lawyer.

I'm sorry Tom, but I think that you just lost any chance of being taken seriously with this statement.

Why does a businessman need to take courses in Art and History to do his job?

History has to do with everything, unless there isn't a history about economics and the such. Hey this Rockefeller dude had some pretty interesting ideas, too bad I didn't learn about him!

What the hell man, history is in everything.

http://www.prairieghosts.com/falls_sky.html  Lol at this link. Where are its sources? Oh that's right, they have none! For all we know they could be overly exaggerated stories, or epics from people (or the author as he wants to make money).

So on the moon, there are biolumenesence, spider webs but no spiders, frogs and snakes, gel like substances, flakes of meat (lol), stones, worms, birds and fish.

Something seems off here. First, how the hell do shrimp and fish coexist together with worms. Worms need earth, fish need water. Then we have birds, stones, snakes, blobs and frogs. It sounds like I'm describing a Steve Irwin adventure to Louisiana...

Does it hurt to fail so hard?

That link said nothing about the number of people that attend.

Just because a Marine makes it into the platoon does not mean he is guaranteed even a chance to go to school. After passing the indoctrination and being accepted into the platoon, a Marine will officially become a PIG (Primarily Instructed Gunman) and will have one purpose in life, to pass school and gain the coveted MOS (0317 - Scout Sniper). School seats are very limited and are given competitively to the best qualified and usually senior platoon members. Expect to wait a minimum of a year before getting a chance to go to school. This could even be as long as 23 years depending on the platoon's deployment rotation and how many school seats they get allocated. During this time platoon members will be learning all of the skills that will be vital to passing school. Marines need to work and study hard to make sure they are ready for school. Marines who hope to pass school must be in peak physical condition. Once graduating school, he will shed his title as a PIG and become a HOG (Hunter of Gunmen).

-from wikipedia scout sniper. Also, the prerequisites weed out a lot as well. You have to be really good and recommended to get in.

It's hard to get in, even harder to pass. Now go crawl back into your cave, or take a stab at something else that I said.
