Flat Earth Community / Re: Brainstorming Community Tests of FE
« on: August 09, 2020, 08:49:00 AM »
Doing our own tests would be meaningless because anyone visiting the site would just scream ... HAS IT BEEN PEER VIEWED?  >o<
Then get it peer reviewed. That would require a journal to submit to, but easy enough to set up a journal if you can get an editor and an editorial board composed of volunteers.

It is a bent system.

If I said "Round Earth is an oppressive thought system to bolster and foster white privilege at the expense of the BAME community" ... that one is going to get green lit. To get anything peer viewed I simply need to state either climate change is real, black people are oppressed, or homosexuality is the natural default and anything else is a perversion. You have to think about the absolute cock wombles who do the peer reviewing.

The best tests would be those you could perform at home. For example, you could flush the toilets and unplug all the sinks and bath in your house to see which way they go. Did they all go the same way? Is Coriolis a thing?

I think constructing a number of DIY tests to see for yourself and get people on the journey of discovery would be far more valuable than "In 2020 Thork bought a vacuum chamber and witnessed the following".

Maybe a "Top 10 things you can do right now to find out earth's shape" would be more engaging and lead to a fleshed out self experimentation section?

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Why doesn’t Sol have a tail

Because it is a sun ... not a comet. It isn't made of ice that melts to form a tail.

You chaps need to get with the program. Otherwise a man like me will steal your woman. And all because you think Axe deodorant smells nice.


Get something nice. Dab it on. Treat yourself.

Flatearther from Germany

This might be a problem. This is an English speaking site. I have no doubt that there is a German flat earth society out there somewhere. Use your journalistic super powers and go find them.

So I'm new here, but I've been leaning toward believing a flat earth model makes much more sense than a globe for a couple years now. I've only been doing more research the last month or so after losing my job but honestly, the more I read, the more I realize how much of society is just fake and fabricated. I'm still educating myself but I've hit a big mental roadblock that I'm struggling to understand.

Sorry you lost your job. Let me give you some flat earther advice.

It doesn't matter what shape the earth is or who lied to you about it. Finding out those things won't change your life one jot or put bread on the table. A lot of people descend into these spirals of research when they are depressed and feeling helpless. They use it as escapism. Don't do that. Right now, you need to use that time constructively. Find a new job or build a new business. Then when you're back on your feet ... use your free time to out those sneaky b*****ds at NASA.  ;)

Good luck.

Flat Earth Investigations / Re: How does FET explain comets?
« on: July 23, 2020, 08:14:44 PM »
Pretty sure last time I saw, FET leans heavily upon the works of Seneca to explain comets. Seneca was in direct opposition to Aristotle. Aristotle believed comets were a phenomena of the upper atmosphere. Where Aether burst into flame and voila ... comet.

Seneca said this was a load of old tosh and wrote quite a bit about comets.

Arts & Entertainment / Perfumes

A hobby of mine I've never really talked about on tfes. I like expensive perfumes. For example, right now I'm wearing Panheligan's Endymion Concentre.



Now if you are a dirty peasant that usually goes about smelling of sweat and Axe deodorant, you're not going to know what I'm talking about. But if you are also someone who likes to smell like a god, what do you recommend? Personally I almost always use boutique brands. I don't like fashion brands like Gucci or Ralph Lauren or Polo sport etc. I'm not a Chad.

Oh, and this is in the art section because perfume is made by artisans and its an arty type thing.

I was so close to getting my first DSLR camera ... and then lock down happened and they doubled in price as vain office types decided they wanted to look good on their zoom call.

SoonTM.

"Imagine coming to TFES and leaving before you've had an opportunity to interact with Thork? "

All I can imagine is being given the run-around once again. This website isn't a legitimate inquiry into
FE vs. Globe, it's a shrine for mavericks who see themselves as a society apart- never mind the truth.
Every question I asked was moved, criticized, warned, avoided- but never directly addressed.
I'm out of here, guys. SciManDan for president!

We have an issue with the moderators, for sure. I don't post in the upper fora any more because the rules are too stringent. I like to wander off topic. Go where the conversation goes. That's what makes every thread different and worth participating in. But for a reason I don't really understand, the mods like to constrain every conversation in the upper fora. I got a warning just today for 'personal attacks'.
Quote from: https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=16067.msg216450#msg216450
I think on this website, when someone says something so jaw droppingly stupid, a little badge should be added to their avatar so that everyone knows they are an idiot and gets fair warning before they interact with them.

If everyone staying at home would just eradicate covid-19 ... why haven't we all just stayed at home and eradicated TB, malaria, typhoid, influenza, pneumonia, ebola, MRSA, meningitis, measels, chicken pox ... etc etc etc.?

Surely if staying at home eradicates diseases, we'd have all stayed home years ago and got rid of most of the world's diseases by now? Go and sit in the corner of your room facing the wall and think about your post.
Hardly a personal attack. I don't imagine any hurt feelings over that one. When did TFES become a forum for snowflakes? Why are we so desperately worried about hurt feelings all of a sudden?

And its that lack of judgement that forces many of us to just stay in the lower fora, away from the stupid mods. It has the reverse effect they intend. The upper fora are a turgid wasteland where round earthers get stock answers and flat earthers are reduced to automated chat bots, regurgitating to same boring rhetoric over and over. There is only so many times you can explain how sunsets work. The instant you want to playfully tease the person you are debating you get a warning. Want to lead the conversation somewhere more interesting? Warning. What to use a risqué source? Warning. Fancy injecting a little humour? Warning.
The lower fora end up with all the interesting debates ... but they can be ruined at any instant by the pond life making quote trees and repeating 'he is' until your conversation is destroyed.

There actually isn't anywhere to have a good debate because the mods are so crumby.  :-\

Anyway, farewell noble Kiwi. May the next corner of the internet treat you more hospitably.

Technology & Information / Re: Should I become a console peasant?
« on: July 14, 2020, 07:18:12 PM »
No reason not to have them all unless you're poor.
I'm not poor but I don't play games much. One machine is more than enough.


Mmmm. Now I'm leaning PS5. The plot thickens.

Technology & Information / Should I become a console peasant?
« on: July 14, 2020, 06:02:10 PM »
I've always been a PC owner who uses their machine quite a lot. I don't game all that much, but occasionally.

So my current PC is due an update ... if I want to play games.

It's actually fine for work. Has 16gb RAM, RX580 GPU, 4/8 cores Ryzen and 1tb NVMe storage. Oh, and 4k screen. For making websites ... it's more than enough.

For games though ... well I'm think 5700XT with a ryzen 3600 or 4600 if I wait a bit.

Thing is, the new consoles are out soon. PS5 and Xbox Series X. And I'm thinking I could just get a console with a 65" TV and then sit back and chill. Don't need to be sat at my desk to play games.

My understanding is both will be about 5700XT in GPU terms anyway but cost way less. So ... should I just become a console peasant? I'm a pretty casual gamer these days anyway.

I'd want my console to play games, let me watch TV and generally do entertainment. Maybe even naked ladies if the mood takes me.

And if I become a console peasant ... Playstation or Xbox? In my head, they are the same. I know PS gets more sales. Xbox is more PC like. That makes me lean Microsoft ... but thoughts?

Or should I just get a grip of myself and build another PC?

David Starky is one of the most high profile historians in the United Kingdom. His comments are hilarious.

To be honest, I thought that was a Thork post, it's a very Thork thing to say.
I haven't posted in this thread for ages. I lit the touch paper and walked away from this dumpster fire ages ago.

White families were able to and that wealth has trickled down the generations in a way it hasn't for black families.
Are you a trust fund kid or something? No one gave me anything. White people aren't inheriting a fortune on their 18th birthday. Where do you get this nonsense? Most white people EARN a living. They don't get bursaries or grants for being BAME. They just get on with working hard. It is why they are called the working class.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Allow markdown for post formatting
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:26:10 AM »
As you can see, the markdown version is much easier to read and edit in its raw form.
No its not.

it should be possible to combine them.
What a horrible idea. You are the only person who will use markdown and the rest of us will have our posts inadvertently mutilated as the markdown overrides our intentions like the much maligned

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)  <-- when of course the person making the list wants 8)
9)
10)

Make it either or ... not both.

All of a sudden you care what an American is doing?  But it's weird to care what the president of the USA is doing?  Do you see how completely two-faced you are?
Lord Dave is part of my every day life. I've been talking to Lord Dave for a decade. I know everything about him and his life. I have never had any interaction with Donald Trump. To me, Lord Dave is a reality. Trump is just a media fiction.
