Flat Earth General / Re: Moonlight: Dangers & Precautions

I forgot about the malevolence of the moon, and caught myself staring at it. If I don't make it through the night, you will know why.
Danang, you constantly spout nonsense about everything in your own pseudo jargon, but please explain as simply and non-jargon-y as possible:

I understand what you say PHEW is.
I understand what you think a South Pole centered map is.

How are they related? What makes a South Pole centered map a PHEW map? (Or not a PHEW map?)

You were all joking about black powder guns, but they are so fun to shoot. Grease, and burning gunpowder! (a huge pain in the ass to clean, though)

No one is selling weapons to Ukraine in any significant amount. It's all donations so far.

someone's buying them.
the us tax payers.
the EUnato tax payers.

does lockheed or whoever care?

the "donations" are justified for the protection of democracy!

Shouldn't we be seeing a lot of stars in a pitch-black sky, since there was nothing causing the glow?

That same question was raised by the moon landing conspirators years ago.  Don't you know that?  Don't you know the answers are the same, now as then?  Instead of just blindly repeating the question, why not raise objections to the answers that were given then? 
Just to add...


    Do human-made structures account for the Earth's curvature?
    If the Earth is round, some of the largest human-made structures would have to take the Earth's curvature into account during design and construction. For smaller structures like individual buildings this wouldn't matter but for things such as very long bridges it would become an issue.

    In fact it is an issue and it does happen. A well-known example is the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge in New York. With a central span of 1,298 m (4,260 ft), it was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was built in 1964. Its two suspension towers are 211 m (693 ft) tall and 1,298 m (4,260 ft) apart. Although each tower is vertical and perpendicular to the water, they are 41.28 mm (1 5⁄8 in) farther apart at the top than the bottom. This is due to the Earth's curvature.

    Another example is London's underground train system. When the Crossrail tunnels were built in the 1990s, the Earth's curvature had to be included in the calculations to avoid misaligning them1.

I'm not FE. Had you made even a token effort at trying to understand my point of view before attacking it, you would know that.

Interesting, eh?

Your point of view, as expressed in your post #5 sure sounds like you are dismissing the arguments of someone (DOF2022) who raised questions about flat earthers denial of gravity.

Am I supposed to keep a scorecard of pro and con arguments everyone makes?

The Russian president's comments mark the latest in a series of such warnings from Moscow. But he said Russia would not recklessly threaten to use nuclear weapons.

"We haven't gone mad; we realise what nuclear weapons are," Mr Putin said.

"We have these means in more advanced and modern form than any other nuclear country, that's an obvious fact," he said.

"But we aren't about to run around the world brandishing this weapon like a razor."

Mr Putin also denied Russia possessed tactical nuclear weapons and said it had never used them abroad.

Gee that's going to make his only friend China happy to hear ::)

And weren't they the ones boasting about how easy it would be to wipe the UK off the map with a single bomb?

And saying he would use a nuclear bomb in response to an attack against a nation with no such capability shows he is happy to use the ultimate in disproportionate response. What a dickhead

Well he's surely fucked his nation and his legacy so he'll always be a loser and remembered as such. I think even China is thinking WTF?
