General Discussion / The Flat Earth Crazy
« Last post by neXus on March 11, 2019, 01:53:02 AM »
This is really scaring me a lot. The increase in all this is crazy and there is even a documentary on Netflix about them now.
In that Documentary some of them do a very simple test which they thought would prove the earth is flat, in fact it showed it was a ball because the light was lower then they thought it would be.


Most of these loonies refuse any facts, dispute them or ignore them and create their own crazy non scientific tests to prove the earth is flat. Many even disagree how the map, sun and moon work in their flat earth modals.


Thanks to Youtube this is one of the biggest growing "Cults" as it were out there at the moment and I just do not understand peoples thinking at all. It easy to call them dumb and idiots but there are even some celebrities out there now believing this. Nasa works for the government so everything and anything they do is fake or staged to these folks, and to answer all the new private companies hitting it up in space - They working with them. Like I said - Any and every excuse to not believe the truth.

What "On Earth  :nana: " Is happening!

Have you tried Silverstone? Not sure what your budget is but I'm sure they still make desktop style cases.

I mean an old style desktop case rather than a tower case.

Would mean I don't have to put it on it's side when I want to do anything inside and the graphic card/HSF won't stress the motherboard.

- Pranking icekay when he used memes hosted on my web space in threads, then changing the images to gay porn.

I don't remember this, but you sir, I salute you!  :thumbup:

I remember that... wow was years ago :-o

I went and upset Icekay a couple of times, second I posted a joke on plausible uses of the burka in the mod's lounge, he went apes*** over it.

Couple of months later one of the London terrorists was caught trying to use a burka as a disguise. That was one plausible use.

Ice's attitude to me went down from there, couple of very nasty rants and he was removed/left, can't remember which now.

I still feel sad over it.

Ahh to be young...

At 57 I still refuse to grow old, regardless of orbits around the sun.

You just can't do this in Sheffield.
The road network is terrible, the busses are unreliable and don't often go where you want them to.  And they're expensive.
Now, if you ask my sister in law who doesn't drive, she'd disagree.  She says she manages fine.  However, she has pretty much trained herself to only go where the bus on her route goes.
If we suggest somewhere to eat that isn't on that route, or another route that's easily walkable, she won't go or begs for a lift.
Same with when you want to go somewhere.  I can jump in the car and go.  She can't.

It's not a problem that is squarely on the shoulders of the council or the transport operators as Sheffield is built in such a way it makes bus operation difficult.
Still doesn't stop them trying to push everyone onto busses still..

From what I recall from living there (though its probably changed significantly since) the trams make getting around town fairly easy, does she not use those at all?

Agree 100% the roads are diabolical though, but most cities roads are to be fair. I never drive into Portsmouth and don't often drive into Southampton - even though both are 10 mins away - as getting into them adds another 30-40 mins at the wrong time, parking is extortionate, etc.

That aside, the few times I've not had use of my car and had to do regular chores it has been a nightmare and a part of my soul has died.

In Exeter a trip from where i was living to PC World is a 4.2 mile trip or 8.4 mile round trip, on an average Saturday, this can take over 2 hours, due to long running road works.
