So, I guess sunrises and sunsets are not well documented, huh?

???

What I meant was that gravity's effects and properties are known and predictable, Bendy Light isn't.  Bendy light can't explain sunrises/sunsets on a flat Earth farther than "uhh... the light bends, and it looks like the Sun sets/rises."

And, what effects can gravity explain in the Round Earth Model except thoss that are necessary for it to be true, such as:

We fall on the Earth, the Moon, the Earth with the other planets rotate around the Earth and Sun, respectively because the second body is much more massive and they attract each other by the gravitational force?

Cavendish Experiment?

Perform a search on these forums. There have been numerous lengthy discussion in which the validity of this experiment had been brought in question.

"Brought into question" is not the same thing as "disproved".
You don't want to make an enemy of me. I'm very powerful.

Please explain in detail the Cavendish Experiment without linking to external sites.

Pretty easy actually.  The Cavendish experiment was an attempt to measure the density of the earth using a torsion balance and two sets of matched weight lead spheres, one set 1.6 lbs in weight, and the other weighing about 12 lbs.  The experiment measured the faint gravitational attraction between the smaller balls and the large ones.
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.

Well I was lucky enough to watch a demo during work some years back.

The Sysco rep demonstrated that the Cavendish specialty cut fries (in their special breathable bag to avoid condensation buildup) outperform McCain fries in a volume stack test using the same weight of fries as measured in a volumetric tube.  The Cavendish fries kept a higher volume build up.
The next week we went to Lamb-Weston because they tasted much better.

Later I worked at a place where we had to punch out our own fries but we used Canvendish waffle cuts for some plates.

So I have seen the Cavendish Experiment done by a Sysco Rep.

To be fair, sometimes what FE'ers say makes so little sense that it's hard to come up with a rebuttal.
Moonlight is good for you.
