Flat Earth Theory / Re: How to make an FE map with accurate distances
« on: April 25, 2021, 11:05:08 PM »
Your assumed distances are fallacious for a few reasons: ... Distances are fundamentally in contention in this discussion

How would you suggest that would be resolved? How would you and the other get to a point where you agree on distances?

Rachel Maddow is a little worried about the AZ audit.

So she should be. The owner of the firm hired to conduct the audit is not impartial, and has already promoted baseless claims of election fraud.

I already answered this at the top of the page.

You appear to address only the last sentence of my previous point, so IMHO, you did not answer this, but ... hey-ho.

... show the special maths they use referring to how round the earth must be, to predict this new cycle.

Reply #16 above. Observe how the distance travelled by the shadow in each half hour increment varies according to where it falls, increasing toward the outer edges. Exactly as would be expected by a shadow moving at linear speed, falling upon a sphere.

Predicting dates will not show this.

You're not giving me anything a saros cycle chart wouldn't.

Show us how the Saros cycle would have predicted the change in length of the shadow's ground path in the 10mins between 17.00 to 17.10, and 18.20 to 18.30.

Or how the Saros cycle shows the location from which to view.

You BELIEVE NASA has cracked the maths. You're not interested in looking at the maths. You've no idea what the maths entails or how it works. But you're convinced it exists ...

Because the predictions all came true, in every respect.

Not a single person reported that the Great American Eclipse did not occur, nor that it differed in any significant way from what was predicted.

It was all laid out in advance. "Go here, at this time, this is what you will see, this is how long it will last".

And that's what happened. Didn't it?

As an aside, I've been through a big chunk of the maths and geometry involved. When the whole "the eclipse shadow is moving the wrong way" thing came up, I worked through it and satisfied myself it was moving the right way, and that NASA was not lying about this.

Look at the time intervals shown here, and how the eclipse shadow covers less surface distance in the middle of its transit, and more toward the outer edges; this variance is totally consistent with the shadow, moving in a linear fashion across the part of space occupied by the Earth, varying in speed across the surface of the Earth due to the global shape.

So, being elected to the office of President = less pandering.

No, if we're going to compare Presidents, as Thork was doing, to imply a pattern of behaviour in comparison to other Presidents' patterns, it's disingeneous to compare a 'less than 100 days in the post' President with any other who has completed one or two terms.

Dontcha think?

What is your pronouncement based on?

The inescapable numerical fact that 100 days is far, far less than either 4 years or 8 years.

Biden has not completed but a fraction of a first term.

It is hard to think of a President in any country or at any time in history, who panders more than Biden. Biden will say whatever he thinks you want to hear.

He's been in office less than 100 days. Far too early for your pronouncement to have any credibility.

Predict the next eclipse with your magic maths. No tables. Use magic NASA maths to predict the next eclipse. I trust they somehow solved the 3 body problem and didn't tell anybody.  ::) Its all done with tables.

Already done, most recently for the Great American Eclipse, where the eclipse path tracked from Oregon to ... Louisiana, I think.

It was all there in the lead-up, predicted down to the last detail, with hosts of diagrams and page upon page of text telling the public what to expect. You could see how the speed of the shadow varied according to which part of the globe it was hitting. How the fall-off occurred for those outwith the path of totality. Etc etc

Far more detail than simply predicted a date in a calendar.

Saros might tell you when, but tells you nothing about where, how long, how the speed of the eclipse shadow varies over different areas of the planet, how wide the path of totality will be, how much less of the eclipse you will see if not on the path of totality, etc. etc.

This all fits in with globe mechanics.

First link states X-rays are a component of solar radiation, but not a majority one;

The Sun emits all wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum (EM). The majority is in the form of visible, infrared, and ultraviolet radiation (UV). Occasionally, giant explosions, called solar flares, occur on the surface of the Sun and release massive amounts of energy out into space in the form of x-rays, gamma rays, and streams of protons and electrons.

Solar flares may well contain X-rays, but no solar flares occurred during any Apollo mission.

And i noticed that the material is highly temperature sensitiv, and whats even more important: radiation sensitive.

And how did you notice this? Why do you accept this to be true? Why do you believe cosmic radiation is a real thing?

On the package it says: protect from heat and x-ray.

Just noticed a contradiction. Cosmic radiation does exist, just go up with a balloon and measure it. If it is cosmic, is a different question. But inside the logic of "we've been at the moon, and made some photos", theres a logical mistake. Just read first post again

Are X-rays a significant component of this cosmic radiation?

Technology & Information / Re: I need me more terabytes

I have quite a lot of data that I need to store and never lose, so I wanted to ask you computer peeps what kind of hard drive to use. I plan on using a 3-tier backup system, or at least that's I'm calling it.


I'm running an ancient Dell PC with a 60Gb SSD running the OS, and three 2Tb 3.5" internals filling the remaining SATA ports and also being driven from one of the PCI slots.

The PC started out life with a single 500Gb internal, I think, and in stages, I move to 1Tb, then 2Tb, then multiple drives.

I have, currently, four external drives; standard USB-style portable drives. Again, I started out with one external, of 320Gb, and moved through 500Gb, 1Tb, etc, until I now have a 1Tb, two 2Tb, and one 4Tb in the "stack", as I call it. Moved up as space was needed, and as finances allowed. I don't tend to pick one drive and stop there. The 1Tb got moved to the 2Tb as I upgraded, etc. 


The internal and external drives are a mix of Samsung, and Western Digital. Previous drives have all been a mix of these two manufacturers, and I would recommend either in an instant. I've probably moved through a dozen, maybe 15 or so.

As I recall, I've only had one drive that began to 'misbehave', shall we say - and I was still able to make a copy of all but a couple of files, before reformatting it; whereupon it seemed to work fine, passed all tests, but I wasn't going to take the chance with it, and moved on to next size up.

I could, but why should I bother?

Because that's the right and proper thing to do.

If you claim to have "done research", you should be prepared to show your work.

Flat Earth Investigations / Re: Let's do ships again
« on: April 12, 2021, 07:03:41 PM »
OK, my elevation, and hence my camera's elevation, was, give or take, 100m above sea level.

The ship with the two cranes is around 50m to the tops of the cranes. Estimating the height from the length/height proportions in the photo, based on the publicly-stated length, yields 44m, but other sources say 58m. In both cases, this is around half of the observer height. (44/100 or 58/100)

Do you agree that the sightline from 100m to the top of a 58m or 44m ship is a downward sightline?

Like Rowbottom's experiment; if he sighted along the flags, his sightline is level, he would look up to the higher flag at D, and look down to the black flag in the middle. Agree?

You've just revealed that you don't test yours, and that you don't know how to go about it

No, he did not.

Asking you how you test your airbag is not of itself an admission that the questioner does not know, nor that he seeks you to inform him so that he may do it himself. Just wants to know what process you follow. You told us what you DON'T do to test it, how about filling in the detail on what you do?

I test it somewhat regularly

Other than by trusting that the car maker's self-diagnostic is working ... how?
How do you know the self-diagnostic is working?

That's what I'm asking Pete. IF he trusts the self-diagnostic.

I think you're making my point for me.

I read it as you are not allowed to electioneer within a certain amount of distance of the polling area.

So in your view, it's not an offence for a random member of the public to give something to someone in line?
