I hope they do something cool with his remains, like turn his ashes into a firework or something.  :-\

Why do we put ourselves above all of God's other creatures?
Because we invented religion (maybe not God, but religion). Dogs didn't. If a dog had written the Gospel according to Fido, maybe the dogs would have been made in God's image, but as it is, God and angel's look like men. And we are above all creatures because we are above all creatures. Top of the food chain. The undisputed champions of earth. Want to take me on, Mr Rhinoceros? I have a rocket launcher. No other animal comes close to us in terms of power or achievements.

How is it that we are ruining the Earth when we are as much a natural part of the Earth as any living thing?
Citation needed. Define ruining? Making more habitable is ruining? Sure, we move stuff around and make things, but everything we use is already here. How can you ruin the earth with the earth? That's ridiculous. Sure, we make a road. It helps us. Makes life better. You can argue that grasshoppers can no longer raise baby grasshoppers there because they prefer grass to asphalt, but its not ruining the earth. Its just making it better for us and worse for grasshoppers. Well lions make life better for lions and worse for wildebeest. Again, pecking order, food chain.

We're no different from an ant building an anthill or a beaver building a dam; we reshape the Earth to make our lives easier. To suggest that what we're doing isn't part of the natural order of things is to ascribe a mystical, supernatural quality to our existence, which is something a self-professed atheist would generally be wise not to do as it comes off as hypocritical.
Oh, we agree.

We haven't "trashed" the Earth. We've changed it, same as any other living thing. It will still be here after we're gone.
We agree again.

Baby Thork and Roundy have joined forces. Come at us, wretched leftists!  >o<

The Carrack is amazing. Totally worth the $350 I paid for it.

This doesn't need a separate thread. We already have a Mad Mike thread open.

The kind that covers public events every day of the week. One day the film crew is covering a marathon, the next a protest outside a council building, the next Mike Hughes. Why would they be responsible for H&S in this circumstance?
TV shows have a duty of care to the people who are on them. For example in the UK there was a very famous TV show where they got a guy to do a reverse bungee https://www.entertainmentdaily.co.uk/news/noel-edmonds-quit-tv-show-following-tragic-death-in-stunt/

It looked like this.



The article clearly says
Quote from: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/mike-hughes-death-rocket-launch-crash-mad-daredevil-flat-earth-video-a9353091.html
“Mad” Mike Hughes, who hoped to prove the Earth was flat by going into space, died on Saturday near Barstow, California, after attempting to launch his steam-powered rocket for a new television series called Homemade Astronauts on the US Science Channel.
IE they were makign the show with him. Not just observing. They have a duty of care.

Ohhhhhh. Well I'm regretting my last statement on the matter.  :-[

No such thing as bad publicity, mate. Its more Twitter followers, more forum activity, more Facebook likes, more power. I couldn't give a monkeys if this guy is boiled alive in that thing. He painted 'flat earth' on the side of it, and that's headlines.

But I do have a couple of things to note.

1) It looks like someone cut the strings to the parachute. This doesn't look like an accident at all.
2) What kind of a TV company rocks up to film a man killing himself? Don't they perform health and safety checks?

Rest In Pieces, Mad Mike. He died doing what he loved.  :'(

Can we now assumed that you are no longer concerned and that this thread can now be placed upon the alter of flatness and sacrificed to Samuel Rowbotham? (Closed?)

I'd like you to respect my privacy.
Although I wasn't particularly referring to you, I see now that you also have that capability.

Is it a feature to which I have access, and if it is, how do I access it?

You might have access, but there is a barrier to entry. You need to be able to read.

Click on your account top right and hit "Account Settings" ... then uncheck the little button that says  "Show others my online status". Then save the changes.


Now ... with this new power ... are you going to use this for good? Or are you going to jump out and wave your todger at passersby, like a pervert hiding in the bushes?

Even so, beating Trump is my top priority.  Hell, I'd vote for another republican over Trump.
Don't you like low unemployment and a strong economy?  ???

Yes, all praise Barack Obama for getting our country out of one of its worst financial crises in history and starting the period of economic prosperity we're currently in.

Good on Trump for not fucking it up yet, I guess. I'm sure he's saving it for his second term like most Republican presidents (that's when the more unsavory aspects of his "massive tax cut" are set to kick in). Of course our national debt is soaring under his watch so it's not like it's all roses.

Does anybody else remember when the Republicans were supposed to be the party of "fiscal responsibility"?

You're buying that crock that it is Obama that did this for the economy?

I don't have to "buy" anything. I was there when the country was going to shit under Bush, and then wasn't after Obama took over. Why do Conservatives have such short memories?  ???

The banks broke the economy. Not Bush. Obama then presided over the slowest recovery in history.

Um, hello, the Great Depression?

That's not a real thing. You might as well be talking about the age of dragons or when America was ruled by the Romans. Anything that far back when they are bartering sheep and settling debts in daughters doesn't count. 'History' as in real things that happened. Not Jack in the Beanstalk type tales of financial terror designed to ensure children don't get out of their beds in case the Federal Reserve grabs them.

I thought Australians just shit in holes in the ground?
My understanding is that in highly populated urban centres, rich Australians use a contraption known as a thunderbox. Check for Coriolis in one of those.

Please confirm that toilets do not flush the opposite way to which you are used to.


Whilst you are there and have an interest, make some effort to see the Southern Cross in the night's sky. That won't prove anything, but at least you can say you took some time to look at Southern Hemisphere constellations.

There are far too many libtards and commies on this fourm.

We had purgatory system made specifically for Markjo. Is there any chance we might be able to throw all the communists, Marxists, socialists, Bernie Bros, Corbynites and the Scottish into a board of their own maked 'feral leftists'? Its not fair on the decent folk, that they are forced to mingle with such trash at TFES.

Three times as many voters in the Iowa caucus than usual, twice as many in the New Hampshire primary... it gives hope that enough Democrats will actually vote in the main election this year to get Trump out. It could be a goddam mandate.

Go Bernie!


??? Trump is going to win by a mile. The democrats will eat each other before the election and Pelosi has made them look like a bunch of nut-jobs. What a ghastly witch. Neutral voters will be turned off by the dems ... crazy AOC with her starey eyes, Schiff with his boggley eyes, Sanders with his wild eyes or Biden with his very very old and tired eyes. No one is going to vote Dem if they voted Trump last time. He's only more popular now. Personally, I like his Tweets. Love watching the media squealing and squealing as Trump whips out zinger after zinger. If I was American, I'd vote to Make America Great Again ... because I wouldn't want to betray my country by voting for a communist.

Flat Earth Media / Flat Earth on UK Morning TV
« on: February 11, 2020, 09:24:50 PM »
This morning Mark Sargent (the guy who did the viral youtube video 'flat earth clues') was on 'This Morning' with Holly Willoughby and complete and utter piece of shit, Phillip Schofield. More on him below*.



Sargent didn't do a great job in the interview. And just from a political point of view, saying on British TV that all the Scots hate the English, as an American commentator ... are you an idiot, Sergant?

I found most of his rebuttals to be pretty weak. I was actually quite impressed with Schofield's line of questions. He wasn't just reading from an auto-cue. He'd obviously put in quite a bit of research to formulate his own arguments. I'd argue he was far better prepared for the interview than Sargent.



*Schofield's research into the topic despite the media shitstorm he has whipped up in recent days is quite amazing.
Last Friday Schofield decided to come out as gay. Despite his being married with two kids and being 57 years old and working in the media ... the was heralded as 'brave and courageous'.
On Saturday it was revealed he'd been grooming a 15 year old boy, by the time the kid was 18 he'd got him working on the show as a runner, and has been bumming him for the last 5 years behind his wife's back. Having fallen out, the runner had threatened to tell the media everything forcing cowardly Schofield to out himself to minimise the damage. The mainstream media have not reported any of this. Utter media black out. If you are gay ... you can cheat on your wife and groom children in the UK ... you are untouchable. Meanwhile news anchor Alistair Stewart of the same TV network was fired for Tweeting a line from Shakespeare that a black woman decided could be racist despite his having tweeted it to a white person in the past. Welcome to the Woke Kingdom.  >o<

It's a long article admittedly, and I did not have the patience to read all of it. But did they say anything out pilots? Or Just payloads?
Space payloads tend to be very brittle. For reasons, they make everything out of bacofoil and blotting paper



Add in solar panels and satellite dishes and a space payload isn't something you want to be pushing up to 10,000g to hurl it into orbit, as sited by the article.
