Also, in the books - there's a line that Arya would love to see Sansa again.
So no, people didn't forget their relationship. But the show is forgetting that they both grew up out of their stupid sibling rivalries.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Sunrise and Sunset II
« Last post by magewave on August 19, 2017, 09:35:15 PM »
Properties of light have been well studied and although there is plenty we do not know, we know enough to predict how light will behave. We do this mathematically with high precision and it has little to do with what shape our planet is, these are just properties of light and matter.
If mathematical models used to describe behavior of light were inaccurate allot of existing technologies would not work, we are taking about computers, cellphones, cars etc technologies we use every day, so we can say with high degree of confidence that we can accurately predict how light behaves.

Considering what i said above, what is the mathematical model that describes behavior of light that would lead to sunset in a "Flat Earth"

I am not judging people exploring this concept although I disagree with them. However I keep seeing scientific method being abandoned in almost every discussion.

Videos contain unverified, unrepeatable, questionable information, and lack any mathematical or experimental basis.

Day and night cycle can be accurately explained and simulated with mathematical models within conventional model where earth is a sphere. I would like to see at least groundwork for mathematical basis that explains and models this cycle with "Flat Earth" approach.

If you can not accurately mathematically describe the behavior of the sun in the sky, what would be the use? Spherical model(even if only a model) is able to do that with high accuracy and is logically more suitable for making predictions.

Given properties of light we have verified, it is not possible to mathematically model or simulate flat disk that would follow patterns of night and day we see on Earth. Again if you know of such a model, please share.

They'd probably think someone else got ahold of the strings
Yeah, I guess expecting them to think something plausible would be silly

I wonder what the #PresidentBannon crowd are thinking right now. The puppetmaster who was clearly 100% in charge of Trump got fired.

They'd probably think someone else got ahold of the strings, which is probably not far from the truth. And that person is probably General John Kelly. First the Mooch, now Bannon.

Flat Earth General / Re: How is a lunar eclipse explained on the Flat Earth?

He linked (and then ridiculed) a video about "How the 2k17 Solar Eclipse Proves FE" or something. I mean, there is tons. But as I watched the video, it grew apparent that he had ridiculed FE without actually watching the video.
  The videos I've seen so far saying the solar eclipse disproves the globe all suffer from an understanding of relative motion and how light and shadows work.

The fewer creeps there are whispering poison in his ears the less likely he is to do any lasting harm. Let's remember that Trump doesnt have an ideology.

I hope his absence improves things. I agree that it's a relief he's gone.

Trump is still there, unfortunately.

I am curious if there are any Flat Earth folks who believe that Monday's eclipse will be caused by something other than "the Moon is going to be between earth and sun".  There is nothing in the Wiki about solar eclipse, as far as I can find.

I also wonder if an FE who acknowledges that a solar eclipse means "moon in front of sun" would be willing to work out some geometry that creates the ground track matching the observed ground track.
