No need to be hostile.


Hey Ystick, know what the thing is about editing your posts? Everyone can see that you've done it.

Funny, in your post that I quoted before your edit, which hasn't been edited itself, the word "curve" is not misspelled.

Because mount Everest is in Asia.

If you look at the time between when I quoted you and time you edited your post you'll see that I posted nearly an hour before you took that out. How would I anticipate that you would choose to fix that particular spelling mistake a full hour before you did?

GeoGuy is saying that in his quote of your post, the word "curve" isn't misspelled, and edits to posts don't effect quotes on that post. I suggest you read your (edited) post and then GeoGuy's quote of that post.

Because the atmosphere blocks you from seeing it.

The atmosphere...OK.  So, how far does the "atmosphere" allow us to see?

Not that far, actually. I stood on the summit of a 6000' mountain and was only able see about thirty miles in all directions, and not because of Earth's curvature.

Why does Dogplatter continue to say this when the line he drew himself over a still from WA's video clearly denoted curvature?


The hell did it. I drew a completely straight line over the horizon and it fit perfectly.

Yes, we know that, as you've never actually made a serious claim, you have nothing to relate to.

edit: I wasn't talking to you, Unimportant, I was referring to YStick.

So you do admit the earth is round. Thats what I interpret the "and not because of Earth curvature" part of the sentence as saying.
