You have no idea what you are talking about:

https://www.nature.com/news/2010/100825/full/news.2010.427.html

It’s kind of irrelevant but kind of important to point out to people like you that there is actually a huge benefit to altruism. It’s kind of shocking that it needs explaining to an adult, but here we are.
Again, a person acts only out of rational self-interest.

Any and all descriptions you offer in support of "supposed" altruism is not altruism.

The actor committing "supposed," altruism is indeed receiving or expecting some benefit, even if it not from external sources.

More fake news? Mainstream media typically states "war veteran":

Nathan Phillips - really a war veteran?

Seems this guy is just a total joke who has a face that deserves to punched...

Canadian media reported that this was a misleading story. Maybe look outside America a bit more and you won’t feel so lied to by the media. You might learn something about civility as well.

Meanwhile, back on the ranch...

The government shutdown plan is working exactly like Trump wanted it to...

Soon, the fat will be trimmed from the hog and all these unnecessary morons can move to their dream socialist paradise...

Soon, civil court cases can be moved to military tribunal status and the traitors can be tried in an expeditious manner...


Nah.  Its so the kitchen staff is home and he can have fast food every day.
Fast food and military tribunals clearly go hand in hand.

Both quick and easy and so satisfying!

The altruism of Trump, so nobly working without pay on behalf of the American people.
As if altruism is a worthwhile aspiration?

Is selfishness, the antonym of 'altruism', the more worthwhile aspiration?
Of course it is!

All creatures, by their very nature, act out of an ingrained sense of preservation of self-interest.

Altruism simply goes against the laws of nature.

Incorrect. Altruism is an evolved trait among many social species.
Altruism is not an evolved trait.

As usual, the bogus definitions card game comes into play.

Nobody wants to play muddy the water with you Rama...

Claiming somebody did the "same tests," is just ridiculous when they did not do the same tests.

whoops.
Why would the feds disclose such critical information to Buzzfeed and not, I dunno, Congress?
One of two ways to look at it...

The feds already know the good people elected to Congress are already so full of shit the feds are seeking to spare them the ignominy of digesting any more...

Or its just bullshit...

Trump has the goods on all these filthy POS...

MSM is merely spoonfeeding the daily dose of fake drama to keep people on the edge of their seat...

Meanwhile:

Unemployment at historically low numbers, especially among blacks and hispanics.

GDP at levels not seen in over 30 years...

The US is now the leading oil producing/exporting nation...

Yeah, this really helps Russia, our sworn enemy (according to libtards)...

United used to have a nonstop from Milan to SFO. I flew it twice. Neither time did it stop. Crushingly long flight. About 11 hours. Oddly, both times it flew way out of the way up over Greenland and back down through northern Canada. Had they been following flat earth flight rules, they just would have done a straight shot West.
You claim it is "odd," the plane, "...flew way out of the way up over Greenland and back down through northern Canada." Then claim, "...flat earth flight rules..." dictated, "...a straight shot West."

Funny, all one needs to do is pull up Gleason's Azimuthal and see that is exactly what they did in flying over Greenland and Canada.

ANOTHER FE VICTORY!!!

What’s hilarious is that your claiming FE victory referencing a globe earth. You do realize the Gleason map is a globe projection?As in, you know, derived from a spherical earth. The irony is that FE uses globe maps. Kills me every time.
All maps, from the dawn of time, have been drawn on flat paper based on the person doing the drawing being on a flat earth plain.
If someone draws a portrait of you does that then mean you are flat?
Do you normally make up false equivalencies?

« on: January 17, 2019, 04:52:54 PM »
Totallackey and Tom you still have not answered the question posed by the OP.
Hard to answer a question based on supposition.
Anyone with a decent telescope costing a hundred dollars or more can see Jupiter’s red spot moving to the edge then it disappears for four hours and some minutes and appears again on the other side of it.  The amount of time it is visible being near equal to the time it disappeared.
As demonstrated earlier this is evidence a spot appears and disappears and not evidence of rotation. 
It has objects orbiting it (four big ones easily seen from Earth), we call them moons, you call them whatever you want.  We also regularly see those objects cast shadows upon Jupiter.  We can also watch those moons orbit with a time frame, even disappearing behind Jupiter to come out the other side.  You both fail to address this as well.
So, something disappears to where?

How do you know where they disappear to if you can no longer observe them?   
There are millions of people with telescopes.  It is a guarantee that all of them look at Jupiter and its four easily viewable moons.
Citation please.
://www.cloudynights.com/index    Is one of many discussion forums about astrophotography with 800,000 plus member accounts.   I think it is safe to say that millions of people have seen it rotating and taken millions of photos of it.  Are you really telling us that images of Jupiter are questionable?  Is https://www.cloudynights.com/index and its 800,000 members all government shills posting fake pictures of the cosmos?   
Oh, so only 800 thousand accounts = millions...

Who said anything about fake pictures or shills?

All you need is the distance as measured on the ground to a point directly under the base of the object. And an object of known height. Position the object of known height so that it obscures all but the very top of the object having unknown height. Do the ratios and you have the altitude of the unknown object.

Correct. You can do the experiment in different ways. But all of those ways assume a flat earth, otherwise the base isn't a straight line and it isn't really a triangle.
My point was, and remains, that over distances of around 100km this doesn't actually introduce that much error into the method. But accounting for it will get you a more accurate result.
You do not assume anything when it is looking exactly the way it is to your own eyes.

The globe is merely the extrusion of the azimuthal.

I flew from Los Angeles to Tokyo over the entire Pacific Ocean without any stops. Is that wide enough?
You have no method of reporting what route you actually took.

Even so, the straight line distance between the two points you mention is not all that different from the difference touted between New York and Paris.

Why would you post an isosceles triangle in a right triangle experiment?
Wht are you talking about the type of triangle when that isn't relevant to the point I'm explaining.
You could do the experiment when the ISS is at any point whether that point is between you or directly above one of you. It doesn't change my point.
This is like when you deliberately tried to put red herrings into the FE Map thread by talking about screen resolutions. I'm still waiting for the results of your tests about that...

Tom's point was the experiment pre-supposes a flat earth.
As I have explained, the earth is big. So if you're taking observations 100km apart then while yes, the curvature of the earth does introduce some error if you haven't accounted for it but the error is actually quite small. It doesn't invalidate the experiment completely if you don't but it does make it more accurate if you do.
You don't need your isosceles setup is the point.

All you need is the distance as measured on the ground to a point directly under the base of the object. And an object of known height. Position the object of known height so that it obscures all but the very top of the object having unknown height. Do the ratios and you have the altitude of the unknown object.

Still struggling with the screen resolution and monitor settings uh...still unable to comprehend how different resolutions render pixelation.

We will leave that to that thread though...

Go look up the diurnal parallax. Its basic geometry. Wow. Do you not see two right angle triangles in that diagram?
If the center line serves as a barrier, then yes.
The angle that forms between the hypotenuse and the opposite sides of the triangle is known - the angle at which you are viewing from the telescope. You can then move your apparatus to achieve the angle again from a distance moved one way or another. You then measure that distance. Divide by two. You know have a known angle and a distance with which you can use  the basic SOHCAHTOA.
Surveyors do not need to move their view in determining altitude of an object.

Determine the distance between you and the object having an unknown altitude. Find an object of known height, placing it in such a way as the top of the object obscures the view of the object being measured.

Do the ratios and you have the altitude of the unknown object.

I don't understand.

Allow me to assist. The ISS is at an altitude of 408km. Let's say you take observations from 100km apart. That looks like this:


Aha! You say, but you have assumed a flat earth. True. BUT, the circumference of the earth is 40,075km. So 100km is a tiny fraction of that, it equates to ~0.9 degrees difference.
Enough to introduce some error, certainly. And yes you can correct for that error to get a more accurate measurement.
It doesn't completely invalidate the experiment if you don't though.
Why would you post an isosceles triangle in a right triangle experiment?
