Flat Earth Investigations / Re: ISS 2031

Projections would require a projector, wouldn't they ... ?
A teacher requires something to teach. A cup of coffee requires coffee and a cup. An axe murderer requires an axe.

Oh, this thread is about the ISS, not statements of the blindingly obvious. My bad.

So they could just leave it up there beyond 2031.  Just have to keep putting new batteries in the Firmament Projector Thingy.  Wherever that is. 
I'm going to guess they plug it in.

And you do understand that, as it breaks up, the different components, having a wide variety of mass/Cd ratios, will be spread over a large area, of which Point Nomo is the centre?  It won't conveniently land in one lump, hence maximise the chances of hitting no-one (or Nemo). 
Actually there are lots of choices.

1) Let if drift off into space.
2) Hit it with a missile and let all the little pieces disintegrate in the atmosphere.
3) Detonate it with a bomb and let all the pieces disintegrate in the atmosphere.
4) Leave it where it is in orbit.

You understand you can observe the ISS from the ground, right? You can see it with the naked eye exactly where and when it's said to be appearing and with some not that expensive equipment you can see the shape of it.
Oh, I can see their projections on the firmament, no problem at all.

Yeah, I don't understand why they don't just crash it on to a school or something either.
The earth is a big place. I'm sure the options aren't

1) Furthest place from any human likely to observe the death spiral
2) On a school

The US is currently at war with Syria. Why not hit a military installation with it? Would be a hell of a boost for the US troops.

I see. So you're pre-emptively calling it fake. Fair enough. Saves you having to think about it too much I guess.
What do you mean pre-emptively? We've been calling the ISS fake for as long as I've been coming to these forums. The fact they want to end the story at 'the point furthest from land on planet Earth' seems altogether too convenient and predictable.

But the death spiral will be observable. Come on, you Zetetic lot, I'm sure you could hire a pedalo and go watch.

Yeah, they've made it real easy for us.  ::)

In a report this week, the US space agency said the ISS would crash into a part of the ocean known as Point Nemo.

This is the point furthest from land on planet Earth, also known as the spacecraft cemetery.

EDIT: And why would there be a death spiral at all if it's just a studio somewhere?!
CGI is cheap. They don't even need a fireworks display to cover the tracks of this hoax.

So they are shutting the studio on a show that has bad ratings and the death spiral is a nice way of saying "And that's why its not in a museum for you to see with your own lying eyes".

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Found a fully working flat earth model?
« on: February 01, 2022, 07:28:01 PM »
Please find the sun_at_the_equator image hereby.

If you prefer, it's relatively easy to make these graphs yourself:
- generate the scene as the globe model describes (ie, an earth, a sun and straight lightrays from the sun to the earth)
- express every element in celestial coordinates (latitude, longitude, distance from the center of the earth)
- now draw (lat/long) as an AE projection (this creates a disc) and insert this disc at height `distance` in the cylinder.
Doing this for all elements in the scene will create the pictures i've made.

Or if you like hard math, transform the line-equation this way, and you'll have the equation for lightrays in the flat-earth universe.


You would only expect those sunlight patterns on 20th March and 23rd September.

With a private window I'm finding us at the bottom of page 2. I guess position 35 or thereabouts.

With my own account and being bubbled, I still only find tfes on page one position 20.

Both for the term 'flat earth society'.

This is new for me. usually I find us near the top of page one. I just thought I'd mention it in case it is something easily fixed like a sitemap update or consenting to some new crap on google console.

We don't seem to rank at all for the term "the flat earth society".  :(


Edit: we do but our rank has dropped considerably.

Well you've ruled out comedy. I guess you are quickly eliminating your weaknesses so this is great progress.

There is a good chance you didn't understand what you were watching, so you will understand that I don't take you seriously.
There is an equally good chance that your last video was 💩

There is a massive difference between Australians 16+ and all Australians, isn’t there?  You will feel soooooo much better if you just admit you are wrong. You will also learn more which makes you less likely to come off as an ignoramus in the future.
You haven't offered anything. How did they get 93%? you are saying I'm wrong, but not saying why. Stop be so intellectually dishonest and offer something.

Thork this just be so embarrassing.
Then stop embarrassing yourself. And stop speaking like a Jamaican.

First off you showed how Reuters got the number 94.4%, which isn’t what Shifter claimed.
Fun fact, the number changes because they continue to vaccinate people. You knew that right? You aren't that stupid.

Second, Ahifter did not claim all of Australia had a rate of 93% vaccinated, did he?  Don’t read more, go see what he actually wrote, I’ll wait….

~93% of Australians 16+ have had 2 doses
::)

Back? Feel dumb?  You should.
I feel like we are at the point where you have fuck all to say as usual and so you are resorting to pedantry. That's how I feel.

Also, using proper records we can tell how many within 'x' age group are vaccinated. Or how many people with disabilities are vaccinated. Or aboriginal people etc

No one uses the total doses administered and then 'divides by 2' lol.

Well. One person does.
??? You need to learn how to read. I posted showing that was the way the 93% was arrived at. I was complaining that it's a dumb way to do it. Don't make out that's the way I endorse.

So you're complaining about how Reuters came up with their percent?
I was complaining about Shifter's claim that 93% of Australians were vaccinated. That isn't true and I showed how they get that number. Once you see how they get it, you know it's a false claim.

He didn’t cite Reuters so what in the actual fuck are you talking about? You debunked something he didn’t claim. Classic Thork.
He claimed 93% vaccination rate in Australia. That is false. I showed how they got that number. Once you see how they calculate it, you know its wrong. So the 93% is debunked. Job done. Keep up.

That data is so bent.

Here is how they get that number.
Quote from: https://graphics.reuters.com/world-coronavirus-tracker-and-maps/countries-and-territories/australia/
Australia has administered at least 47,889,638 doses of COVID vaccines so far. Assuming every person needs 2 doses, that’s enough to have vaccinated about 94.4% of the country’s population.
94.4%. Its gone up since your source. Nice.

Lets check somewhere else ... say my home country.

Quote from: https://graphics.reuters.com/world-coronavirus-tracker-and-maps/countries-and-territories/united-kingdom/
United Kingdom has administered at least 137,140,907 doses of COVID vaccines so far. Assuming every person needs 2 doses, that’s enough to have vaccinated about 102.6% of the country’s population.
102.6%? It is at this point you know your ~93% means absolutely nothing.

I wonder if Thork’s gay acquaintances, if they exist, which I’m pretty sure they don’t,
My brother is gay.

Who turned your brother gay?
I'm going to guess that my father dying and my going to uni left him with just his sister and mother as role models and it turned him a bit fruity. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don't think any teachers should talk to children about gay relationships.
That wasn't the topic of conversation you're responding to, but I assume you know that and just don't want to answer my question, so I'll chalk this up as another running-away thread.
If you've moved the goalposts so far from the OP that I've now no idea what you are talking about, that's you running away, not me.

Wait a second. Do you mean to tell me that you believe a 40-year-old man explaining homosexuality to children is placing them at higher risk than a 40-year-old man explaining heterosexuality to children?
Yes. Heterosexual men are less likely to commit sex crimes per capita.
I'm sorry, what? How is the sexual orientation of the teacher remotely relevant? Do you think it's impossible for a straight teacher to talk about gay sex, or vice versa?

Truly wonderful, the mind of a Thork is.
I don't think any teachers should talk to children about gay relationships.

I really don't think peadophiles should talk to children about gay sex.
Next, I don't think gay men should.
Next, regular men shouldn't.
Finally women shouldn't.
Leave it to parents.

That is in the order of risk to children.
