Hello and welcome. I would suggest reviewing the FAQ and wiki, as most of your questions are answered there.

Flat Earth Debate / Where is the edge
« Last post by flatearthistruth on February 26, 2017, 04:21:53 PM »
The earth is obviously flat, and a planar surface must have an edge, so where is the edge? If I were to jump off of it, where would I go? Is gravity real? If gravity is real then how do airplanes fly? Is space real? Please explain.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: what does the flat earth look like mapped out?

I posted a simple way to make a flat earth map some time ago.
All you have to do is to draw a circle (with the ice ring around it of course) to scale, cut out the continents to scale, and then fit them in with the proper distances and spacings from each other, glue them down on the circle, and there you have your map. Be sure to get everything  to the correct size and shape. Pay particular attention to Greenland, Australia and Antarctica. Oh sorry  !   My error ! Of course Antarctica is the ice ring ?
Hint : A scale of 1 inch = 1,000 miles would give you a nice circle with a 25 inch diameter for a start.
Seems simple ? Why hasn't this been done ?

You flat earthers might have some trouble convincing the U.S. Navy that they have been using the wrong maps and charts for all these years. 
Advice  to flat earthers. Don't join the Navy. You might "see the world." LOL

Rabinoz I beg to differ. The map would not be impossible for intikam.
I think the Flat Earth Society is a little shy of scientists, engineers and surveyors.

My view is simply that it's a matter of discrimination with no competing interest that justifies it. The only argument I've seen against letting trans people use the bathroom of the gender they identify with (I mean against in principle, not simply that they want to leave it to the states) is "Think of the children!" appeals revolving around mythical trans predators.

program
function

Nice 180
Are you suggesting functions can exist without using any program memory? Because that'd be silly!!

w0w0w0w that's some damn logic gymnastics you got goin' on there bud lmao
If you want to lower this discussion to shitty trolling, I can probably outmaneouvre you in that game. I'm playing nicely. Try to extend the same courtesy back.

You know good and well that the argument against allowing trans people in the bathroom that corresponds with their gender is about cis people's safety, not trans people's. It'd be downright delusional to suggest otherwise.
I wouldn't say it's the argument, but it's one of the arguments, yes. See, this is why I keep trying to point out that the issue is nuanced. To you it's black and white - moral policing must be enforced nationwide, and anyone who believes otherwise is an evil religious villain (the twirly moustache kind, of course) who hates human rights. Nevermind that you can't demonstrate the link to human rights without contradicting yourself. Nevermind that multiple arguments are floating around, and most of them don't mention safety at all. Nevermind facts, we must PROTECT RIGHTS OR SOMETHING

Your argument is rooted in emotion, which is why you take it apart yourself. To paraphrase: "Trump is inconsistent and that makes me angry! Here's an article that explains that he's not inconsistent. Oh, what's that? I should have read the article. Well, I didn't think the part that talks about his consistency is in any way important to me talking about how inconsistent he is, this is about human rights! Specifically, the right to safety, which is not affected demonstrably in any way, and which I believe is irrelevant since trans people get assaulted in either bathroom!"

This issue at hand, simply, is the state trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist.  Most trans people, I imagine, use the bathroom that will cause them less issues.  So if they can pass as female, they will use the women's room.  If they pass as male, the mens.  And when they can: a gender neutral one.  All regardless of law.
I mostly agree. For the most part, the bathroom laws change nothing. It will, however, affect some extreme edge cases.

Meanwhile, the White House's open data catalogue has been blanked entirely. Unfortunate.

The trans people argument about bathrooms is fake.  Know why?  Because when you hear about it, you hear about a man going into the woman's room.  The entire argument is designed to scare fathers into wanting to protect their daughters from predators.  You never hear about protecting sons from the same.

In Trump news, he's skipping the correspondant's dinner.
Also, fox called him out on his BS of banning certain news agencies.  So guess which agency is gonna be labeled fake news next...

I now have audio working. It was a bit of a wrangle, but the process is largely documented in this blog post and this bug report.
