What's the matter, junker, too REAL for you?

Too legit, actually.

Steve Jobs (Danny Boyle, 2015)

This was really good. I'm not judging it on any similarities to reality, but on its own basis as a film, and it was a really good film. They did a great job not glorifying Jobs, but also very accurately portraying what he was trying to do, or at least what he believed he was trying to do. He felt he could make a dent in the universe, profit be damned, and he tried. It got a bit too soppy from the end, which, after spending the first 1.5 hours being harsh and realistic, betrayed its integrity a bit. Overall, though, good film.

If you haven't seen Pirates of Silicon Valley, you should.

Junker, can I asked how the hypothesis in the wiki were developed?  I thought that zeteticism evolved from observation.  How was the statement that the planets revolve around the sun developed?
You sure can, although you would have to talk about it with those who put together the wiki. Observation is key, I agree.

If it's not on YouTube they probably don't see it.
What on earth are you going on about? You obviously know absolutely nothing of the community here. Ignorance seems to be the favorite utility of this newer batch of RE noobs.

Links have been posted to sites that calculate the elevation and azimuth of a dish as used by installers across the world. 
What does this have to do with the shape of the earth?

'You' have provided no evidence of an alternative explanation.
Was I supposed to provide evidence for a discussion I was not a part of?

Rules or not and whether you follow them yourself, junker, you are being intentionally obnoxious. Even to a point that reignites the plausibility of this site and its developers/admins/owner(s) being massive trolls.

I am not sure if you just don't know how the rules work, or don't understand what transpired in the thread thus far, but there is a place where you can post suggestions or concerns. If you need help finding it, please just ask. I will ask that you please refrain from off-topic and low-content posting in the upper fora. Warned.

You are disagreeing with known accepted information. 
Where did I do that?

If you disagree with measured distances of Australia then 'you' need to provide your version.  It's easy to say 'prove it' yet you have not provided your measurements.

Similarly the operation of satellites with dish angles proves a transmitter over the equator, see the various angle calculators and check their maths.

Was this supposed to be relevant? In the amount of time you have spent posting, it seems you could have just provided evidence for your claims.

ah cool!  Thanks!  This thread can be closed unless someone wants to claim a conspiracy?

I am apparently a retart and it has nothing to do with mobile. Post has been updated. Closing this thread to perpetuate the conspiracy.

The evidence is available, as you know.  Please provide details of any published information you believe to be untrue.
eg. Satellite TV reception and how you believe it works.  Also any incorrect measured distances.

Sorry, friend, that is not how the burden of proof works. You are the one making the claim. It isn't on me to 'prove you wrong'TM

There are enough measurements of distances, angle of the sun, satellite operation, verified maps etc. to prove a round earth.

These are fantastic claims. Tremendous claims. You should provide evidence for them if you want to use them to support your position.

Just wondering what would cause a moderator to edit a community post, such as this one without notice?

I actually went in to resize the image to make it easier to view, as it is unnecessarily large, and left a note as such. However, I borked it up on mobile and just reverted. Was going to fix now that I am back on my computer box, with the aforementioned note included.

I agree with Poseidon, Gecko's comment definitely was relevant. Certainly more relevant than your comments Junker...
That is fantastic that you have an opinion. It is totally irrelevant and off-topic, but it is yours nonetheless. So, consider this a warning for off-topic posting.

There is no scientific evidence that supports a flat earth.
Do you have evidence to support your outlandish claim?

The only thing you guys have going for you are the conspiracy theorists that think everything is a lie.

No matter how much evidence and proof there is for a globe, it's still all some huge hoax. There isn't even a logical reason to hide the shape of the world...
You have a nice strawman going so far, but I would suggest maybe actually sticking to arguments people are actually making in the thread if you are going to participate.

On another note, I want to thank round earthers for literally proving my point I made all the way back on the first page:

The flat earth proponents here have simply grown tired of having the same debates over and over again. It seems each round of noobs that come by are more entitled with each iteration. Roundies make demands that they can rarely fulfill themselves, so over the years, regulars get tired of it.

Several of you have literally behaved in the exact way I described. Well done.

Be it resolved that a line drawn on the 2D projection of the sky, perpindicular from the chord of the lunar terminator intersects with the sun. FE has assumed the negative side.

Or the slightly more wordy version;

Tom saw a video (it’s in his first post), where this bloke gets excited about the fact that the angle that the moon seems to be pointing doesn’t correspond to the angle you would expect it to be at when in the sky with the sun, then he kind of figuratively goes woo, but doesn’t say what it all means, I think he has other videos that go woo about other stuff including flat earth stuff, so Tom goes woo too.
The RE collective (TM Rama) point out after a while that it’s an optical illusion that can be collapsed by stretching a straight piece of string between the two, but Tom is struggling, the conditions are right to do this in the morning now, I think (we’ve had wall to wall cloud the last 3 days), could you help him?

(11 pages! Fuck I must get out more)

Alright, I think I am caught up. I wouldn't mind giving it a go if/when I am thinking about it and conditions allow for it. However, regardless of outcome, why would this be evidence for either side? Seems to be explainable in either model.

Junker! Seeing as you are here on patrol, have you tried this string thing? Indeed have any of the FE fraternity prised themselves from their basements to do a simple bit of real world experimentation, I don’t want to push Tom anymore as there is obviously something or someone that is preventing him from going out.

I haven't tried it. I'm not opposed to trying it, but I'm not overly sure what we are trying to accomplish in this thread. Can I get a tl;dr version so I don't have to read 10 pages of arguing?

Junker, you are kidding right? 

You haven't noticed this yourself? 

You're insinuating that I'm the only person to ever observe this?

This is not intended to be a debate forum. It is intended for those with questions about FET to ask those questions and get them answered based on this community's accepted model of FET. Having said that, I will be cleaning up this forum and moving topics to their appropriate locations if they do not fall under those guidelines. We have a FE general forum and a FE debate forum for those wanting to engage in more in-depth discussion.
