Why or how does an ice wall exist if we are just one of many island worlds on an infinite plain? What are we floating on? And when did fog stop signal transmission?

Who is going to tell Tom that a gun shot wouldn’t be listed as the primary cause of death if someone gets shot through the heart?
Probably the same people who would count it as a gunshot death when offering up their feeble rhetoric concerning "WE NEED TO CONTROL YOUR GUNS!"
, he said, unironically.

So to sum up the story A80 linked about someone being turned away from a voyage to the ice wall:

A reality TV personality took an unpermitted and uninsured trip to Antarctica. They Made it to McMurdo Bay. TV star and other crew members were exploring on land, using ATVs when the 3 remaining crew aboard their ship set off an emergency alert. The ship sank and the three crew are presumed dead after a search led by multiple nations.

Fast forward a little and TV personality wants to go back to find his boat. He files no paperwork in any country, and has passengers on board who dont have passports. He makes it back to McMurdo Bay, searches for his previous ship, gives up then heads towards Argentina/Chile because they are already in trouble in NZ, their port of origin. They get detained and fined in Chile for a myriad of minor offenses.

TL;DR. Guy who got 'turned away' from going to the ice wall actually went there twice, and ventured beyond it in his first visit. Didnt get 'turned away' until he'd already left Antarctica and returned to south America.

Havent read any spyshit since Ludlum after watching Matt Damon as Jason Bourne.

Been reading almost exclusively nordic noirs. Rankin and Nesbo being the best, but James Thompson is good, and I like Arnaldur Indridason, but that's probably just because I liked the fact that I'd been to so many of the spots in Iceland he mentions.

Yeah, there was a notable case of a guy from Norway getting arrested for trying on his own.

That's an interesting story actually. Lots to unpack there.

I might try looking into this a bit. Right now, the striking detail  (to me) is that the Norwegian was reportedly in search of the vessel that sank on his previous trip to McMurdo Bay, killing three.

Why do you think no one had been to Antarctica since Byrd? Has anyone been turned away from the ice wall while trying to reach the south pole?

Flat Earth Investigations / Re: The ISS - Who Should I believe?
« on: September 02, 2021, 05:35:20 PM »
The ISS can stay above the earth by orbiting fast enough, just like a rock tied to the end of a string. If you spin it round and round fast enough, it won't fall to the ground.

Can you elaborate on that? Is Earth moving or stationary? How does that model work if the earth is moving through space? If I hold a rock and string above my head and spin it fast enough, itll absolutely stay put...but if I jump while doing that, I'm going to have a problem. What force is represented by the string?

So now that a Democrat is in the oval office, Republicans are back to caring about how we/the president treat(s) the families of fallen soldiers?

I'm just trying to get a sense of where the goal posts sit before I decide if this is worth jumping into or not

Should it be about children who love to rub hairy legs, Corn Pop, and ice cream trucks or children who love to rub hairy legs, Corn Pop, and ice cream trucks though? You should clarify before we get too far into things.

an apologist for everything Trump did.

What exactly did Trump do? I'd be interested to know the terrible things he did. Based on his actions and policies, I'd say he was a reasonably good president. I mean, he didn't surrender to the Taliban and leave £billions of military hardware in Afghanistan.
He freed 5000 Taliban, including their leader. He then upheld the deal he struck with them, even after multie breaches of the terms of said deal, allowing more and more Taliban to be released despite non compliance.

Quote
He didn't read everything from a teleprompter and only take questions from pre-selected journalists. He knew what day of the week it was.
He didnt do a lot of reading, no... that's why his addresses were incoherent, rambling, improvised messes that left him slinging insults and mocking disabled people, or holding bibles upside down, or getting the names of countries wrong, or calling countries shitholes, or suggesting consumption of bleach, or using nuclear weapons to stop a hurricane, or calling racists 'very nice people's etc etc etc

Quote
Tell me ... what was the terrible thing Trump did?

You mean aside from all the sexual assault allegations? Or was that just a rhetorical question?

This has the potential to go sideways quickly if they are able/willing to use it the wrong way

I feel like that was supposed to sound ominous, but it's actually encouraging. I dont want to have to worry about preventable diseases like smallpox and mumps...

Oh man, Trump would have been absolutely slaughtered in the MSM. Lots of that would have just been the Trump effect, but part of it would have an element of 'making your bed and being forced to lie in it'.

It is hard to think of ways Biden could have done worse with this file... but also easy to think of ways Trump('s transition team) could have made it less challenging for ol Joey No-Pulse to not botch completely (which he may have done any ways)...
