Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

A homemade rocket didn't work? Imagine my shock.

In what way did he intend to falsify a spherical Earth?

>>42118824
I read somewhere that he built a smaller rocket which was successful. But 62 miles in altitude isn't really the kind of thing which is amenable to heuristic learning.

You know, if you really wanted to prove if the earth was flat you could just drive so far and maybe see what's there?

This flat earth meme is so dumb...

The earth is round for the last time

However, I do believe this is all a simulation

It says so on wikipedia at least. Apparently used it to finance his rocket.

I guess he died doing following his dreams... so that's something.

this article says nothing about trying to prove the earth is flat

He was clearly assassinated by nasa to stop the real truth being know.

The earth isnt round, nor is it flat.

The earth is donut shaped.

I thought it was a Disc.

Also here is a pic that of me visiting the Elephants supporting it.

My questions to flatearthers. And I don't mean in a consendating way, just curious what they think about it.

What do you believe is at the edge of the world? Such as what's keeping all the water in etc.
How do you explain gravity?
Is there a threat of "digging to deep"?
Is there anything on the underside of the world?

They think there is a big wall of ice all around the flat Earth. It prevents the water from falling off.

I mean, I can sorta see the logic in that. When I have a plate of risotto it's usually cooler around the edges and hot in the middle.

...And also that the UN has sufficient troops to garrison said ice wall and prevent flat earthers from getting close to it.
Also also there may or may not be land on the other side of the ice wall with greater total and mass than the "earth" we know and that's where all those troops come from. And if there aren't dragons over there too I will be sorely pissed off.

The only logic I see there is that it's warmer wherever the bulk of your risotto is.

You forgot the 'are the other planets round and we're the only flat one?'.

Riding a Looney Tunes rocket as a publicity stunt fell on it's face. Tragic, perhaps it could have been averted if the media and social-media didn't gave the man and his trick attention.

How are flat earthers still a thing?

If I want to tinfoil a little, it feels like something to experiment with how weird ideas are being transmitted and transformed by the public. Study of memes, if we roll with the original idea of a meme.

Perhaps something that started from stupidity/misplaced skepticism/cynical greed and got out of hand.

If I want to be more acceptable in public I would say:
>I have zero idea, but I really wonder what is going on here.

>Hughes was scheduled to launch his homemade rocket for a new Science Channel series called "Homemade Astronauts," according to the Discovery Channel website.

I can't help but feel that building up a market / online spectacle for civilians developing their own deathtraps has some inherent ethical questionability.
