Clearly the punchline to Vauxhall's little joke is that imgur is part of the conspiracy.
Certainly seems like it's heading that way doesn't it lol :P


The image link is broken:
http://i.imgur.com/Lh83o84dfK.jpg

Imgur works fine, your link is literally to an imgur fail page, not to a real gallery page where my ISP is just showing me a missing picture.

Why don't you try linking to an actual picture?

It shows up for me. Maybe you're doing something wrong.

So you all are masters at hotlinks and imgur url code? Give me a break.  ::)
Actually yes, I'm a sofware developer - I've made that quite clear in many of my posts. If I couldn't load URLs I think I would have bigger things to worry about than what shape the Earth is :)

I cropped myself out of the photo because I didn't want to reveal my face. I request you take that down, please. I will report you.

The above image is from Google!
The blog it's from is even titled "Confirming Earths Rotation" - Vaxhaull believes it rotates! Good job guys :)

Interesting, so your name is Ikemefuna Agbanusi and you built a working pendulum which confirmed the earth's rotation?

I didn't type up the findings, someone else did. I am the man in the picture, though. Also, this picture was taken a long time ago... I didn't subscribe to any theories.

Now that everyone knows my name (appropriate partys involved have been reported)... Its time to post your pendulums.

It's ok Vauxhall, we know you believe it's round really :) Especially as the blog is about them doing it for/ with a group of people - more specifically a math club. You, (Ike), also look pretty chuffed - you must've been overwhelmed with the evidence of rotation; good for you!

You're the Dr Ikemefuna Agbanusi? Better and better, so with your doctorate in maths and your particular interest in stochastic reaction diffusion equations, you are probably our member most qualified in maths.

Would you mind explaining this proof which you derived here in layman's terms? Pure maths was never my strong point.

Since we already know what you look like, then you shouldn't mind posting a verification pic?

Better than that, I said I would build one if you posted pics of yours that you didn't just get from google.

Guess we can forget that part, but I might build one anyway, though I'm not sure I have access to anywhere tall enough. Would be a cool thing to do though. If I ever get round to it, you can be sure I'll post a video.

You can't prove the picture is "from Google". Believe it or not, lots of pictures end up on the internet. Do you know how the internet works? Do you even know how Google works? Lol.

Anybody can do a search and pick out an image - it's not hard. And yes, I at least do know how both work :)

Why don't you post some pictures of yours, Vauxhall?

If you post something that isn't straight from google this time, I'll make my own and post pics of that too. We can be Foucault buddies.

So, because you're lying, and you've been caught, we should assume everyone else is also lying?

Not very sound logic, "Dr Abganusi".  ;D

After some analysis, the true original photograph was 2592 x 1944 pixels in size. This is larger than any available on the internet, so presuming you have the original file, you can upload this to prove that you categorically did not pull it from Google.

What is it with REers putting words in my mouth?  ::)

At least two of you claimed that you have photos of a working foucault pendulum. Not one of you have posted these "pictures". Until then, you're lying.

I'm the only one being honest here. You all are just pissed that I actually went through with posting the picture (which you assumed didn't exist) and now you're trying to nit pick every detail. You're missing the big picture, not to mention you're completely off-topic which goes against the rules of our forum.

Post a picture of your pendulum and I'll comply with this. Otherwise, I see no reason to. I don't need to prove my identity to anyone... that was what I was trying to avoid in the first place.

Please try to stay on topic.

I also made a Foucault Pendulum and it worked fine. Furthermore I partied with the Foucault Pendulum guards at the Pantheon is Paris.

We are on topic; we're currently talking about the photo of your pendulum, "Dr Abganusi" ;). It's obviously pulled from Google so you've clearly underestimated the capabilities of the internet as a lie detector - it's very good at it ;)

I've posted more photos than you have and mine are at least actually real :) I'm not going to keep searching for more photos for someone who continually lies, Dr Abganusi :P

Feel free to think I'm lying, it makes no difference to me. I've reported you every time you've used that name. I wouldn't be surprised if you suddenly disappeared from the forum within the next couple of days. Mods have already contacted me via PM to get this issue resolved. Was it worth it to prove a point?

Please prove that you've seen a working foucault pendulum. Is that possible for you or are you just trolling at this point?

I pretty certainly have photos of the labs inside too, but I have a strong feeling they'll just be passed off as "the pendulum isn't moving so therefore it's fake" or whatever :P

Let me get this straight, you have pictures of the pendulum but you're not going to post them? I guess I'm the only one here with enough balls to back up my claims.

I guess it's kind of hard to back up claims that were lies all along, huh?  ::)
