Here is your chance for your own thought Tom.
There is plenty of info in this thread for you to work it out.
If I say any more it wont be your thought, If it becomes your thought then you will pay attention.

It does, go to the beach and lay down at the waters edge and look at something close. Then stand up and see what happens.

Yeah, that's because if the curvature of the Earth.  The horizon becomes closer as you get lower because that's how it works on a sphere.  If the Earth were flat then there should be no limit to how far we can see.
Oh yeah, the sphere/curvature thing, did that one for 50 years. It don't work when you open your eyes and have a real look.
Must be awful waking up at 10am and going to bed at 4 pm everyday.

True, but it allows me to focus on sinking ship, without any distractions.
