First. Angloplane? Never heard that word before and a google search turns up nothing.
The word "Anglosphere" is likely to be more common, although it obviously isn't a sphere.

Second, and I'm not saying he isn't exaggerating some, but do you by any chance have any sort of source for this? I've never seen any kind of poll of FE'ers, although I personally feel the statement is likely a bit closer if substituting 'Northern Hemisphere' for 'NA or the UK' but that's me.
Nope, nothing that could be easily verified by an outsider. Not that 3D presented anything himself. However, as I am currently managing this site's social media stuff, I have a good gauge of the people who engage with our content (both believers and dissenters in their respective categories).

Almost 100% of FE'ers live in North America or the UK. 
Perhaps unsurprisingly by now, you have lied once again. Angloplane residents make up a relatively small minority of Flat Earthers, very far from your alleged "almost 100%"

I wonder whether your constant and deliberate spreading of misinformation constitutes a breach of the rules, given just how frequent it is. I might have to enquire about that, since polite requests don't seem to work on you. It's one thing for you to try and "debunk" us by claiming that Dallas is in Japan, and another thing entirely to continuously and deliberately misrepresent your opponents in a debate, especially when introducing the subject to newcomers.

Ah, didn't see that, thanks.  I could apply but they might not like the airfare. XD
Do it! If you win and they question the airfare, you can cross that bridge when you come to it.

Also, it would be illegal if the contribution was mandatory, but you can enter without paying up and donating won't increase your chance of winning. They even provided the free entry link in a relatively visible place (the small print).

Unfortunately, in a true America First style, I cannot enter this due to not being a US citizen or resident :(

Holy shit

Also, I want a terrific dinner with Trump. We could have well-done steak together and it'd be great

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Weightlessness in FEer UA and in REer gravity
« on: October 12, 2017, 09:00:57 AM »
So any flaws in UA must be due to NON-UNIFORMITY.
As always, you inject an untruth early on in your post and try to cover it up with an endless condescending diatribe. It's an extremely poor strategy.

The gravitational pull of the heavens accounts for the extremely small extent of non-uniformity that your tale relies on.

The rest of your post becomes thoroughly worthless since it relies on a false assumption. Except for the part where you baselessly allege that the curves would be different, I guess, but baseless allegations are not worth anyone's time.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: How does FE think that GPS works?
« on: October 10, 2017, 08:50:23 PM »
If you search the Wiki for "GPS" you get exactly one page: https://wiki.tfes.org/Space_Travel - which contains four broken links and nothing else.
Interesting, you've found an old orphaned page. Nothing links to it, and it links to nowhere, so I've now removed it.

The folks here at TFES.org seem mostly to be agreed on (2).
Please stop spreading lies about us. It's extremely unhelpful, especially when it's been pointed out to you before.

Uhh... you haven't seen how literally every world leader is reading his tweets and reacting to them?  Trump's diplomatic teams are putting out the political fires every time he tweets something bad.  And you can't really blame the media since it's not like they're writing tweets he isn't making.  Nor is it difficult for any world leader to read what he tweets.
Right. Well, we've had this conversation more times than I care to recall. I doubt either of us will have anything new to say about it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah but this isn't fear of causing offense, it's intentionally causing offense by not being Politically Correct, which is a right's utopia yeah?
And, as I already said, I'm of the opinion that they should have the right to do it. Just, y'know, don't be surprised if after years of pushing for political censorship it eventually becomes a reality. We've been warning you this would happen.

Ok... I have no idea what this actually means.  What have they gotten that they've been asking for all these years?
A cultural paradigm shift under which saying and doing offensive things is a big boo-boo. As far as I'm concerned, you should be allowed to kneel before, or on the flag, during the national anthem, to protest whatever the hell you wish. Then again, as far as I'm concerned you should also be allowed to take a dump on the flag, then set it on fire, then realise that flags aren't very flammable, and then flush it down your toilet.

Apparently Democrats have been clamouring to repress freedom of expression over the fear of causing offence. Just clamouring in general for that general idea. That was my favourite Obama speech.
Yes, unfortunately such shifts are not realistically restrictable to just a small set of cases. You either do it across the board or you don't do it at all. I'm going to carry on siding with the latter, but I will have no sympathy to supporters of the former who are now affected by their own ideas.

speaking of things that have no actual consequences: sitting down during a song.
I don't disagree - I'm strongly on the "anything goes" side of the free speech debate. It's just particularly funny to see Democrats get what they've been asking for all these years and not enjoy it.

Didn't you say the same thing about Trump's shitposting?
Yes, and outside of a few media outlets thinking Twitter is srs bsns, nothing has changed.

Oh look... real consequences:
http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/10/10/556764495/dallas-cowboys-owner-jerry-jones-players-cannot-disrespect-flag
Someone did something that an influential group considers offensive (rightly or wrongly) and their boss told them to stop. Oh, the humanity. Consequences will never be the same.

Oh, and it happened in football. Blimey, this may be even more consequential than an old man's trolling on Twitter. Best declare a state of emergency.

As an aside, surely repressing people's freedom of expression over the fear of causing offence is a leftist's utopia?

If the moon is where FET says it is - then they should be seeing opposite sides of the thing - and therefore the pictures they take should show radically different patterns of craters and marea...and they should also show different moon phases.
As always, 3DGeek chooses to lie about FET. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this never works.

Here, let me try.

If the Earth was really round, the moon should be green when viewed from Australia but pink from Dallas, Japan. This doesn't happen. The end!

Do you yet understand why these sort of arguments do not help your case?

Is Trump aware that, unlike the fake consequences of reality TV, what he says and does -- and what he directs his vice president to say and do -- has very real impacts on the country? Maybe. Will that change his behavior? Almost certainly not.
Ah, yes, the very severe and real consequences of a man walking out of an NFL game

You're acting like racism is some rare and mythical phenomenon that very few people have ever experienced.
No, it's mostly that your depictions of racists are so detached from reality. They read like tedcruzforhumanpresident.com

There is such a thing as anti-Hispanic sentiment and discrimination against them, you know perfectly well that's what's being alluded to in this context, and your nitpicking doesn't change anything about the sentiment of what garygreen was expressing.
Of course, but this allusion is equally incorrect in my mind, just much less entertaining and basically not worth mentioning in the current year. The whole "Trump hates minorities" meme has mostly died off outside a small group of left-leaning people. It's about as funny as "dat boi" at this point.

Meanwhile, gary trying to explain that he doesn't think Hispanics are white by linking me to a Wikipedia article about how black people were miscategorised in the past is hilarious. The absurdity of that statement does indeed match the absurdity of his past statements, and while the trend is indeed irrelevant to the subject at hand, it's still worth bearing in mind. A person who talked nonsense so much in the past is likely to continue talking nonsense.

Finally, and I'd say that's the most pertinent part of my point here, I strongly doubt any of you have ever met a racist person, yet you try to act like experts on the matter. It's not a good look for you.

In other news, our resident Nazi/cactus president is throwing paper towels at definitely-not-white people: http://time.com/4968074/donald-trump-paper-towels-puerto-rico/

lol i'm obviously not saying hispanics are considered african, dummy.  jesus christ, it's like pulling teeth with you.
Yes, you were also obviously not saying that Russia is a US ally, or that Qing didn't exist. You just happened to say those exact words but you actually meant something else. But hey, at the very least we agree that white people are not black. That's something, right?

to racists, white or not-white is the binary that divides races.  hispanics and latinos are not-white.
Again, if we allow you to exclusively define what a racist or white supremacist is, then I'm sure Trump is one. Similarly, if I get to define a cactus as whatever the hell I want it to be, then Trump is a cactus. This is why this approach is useless.

Pete, why don't YOU tell US your definition of white supremacist's definition of white
I don't see the point in linking Wikipedia to a bunch of people who clearly don't want to discuss the subject. It was supposed to be a quick "Haha DRUMPF is racist xD" and my interjections are clearly just a needless nuisance to these highly intellectual endeavours. It's supposed to rely on the meme definition of "white supremacist" (one so broad that I'd probably fall under it by virtue of opposing ISIS). It was a mistake for me to try and discuss it rather than just meme back at gary.

basically the bedrock of racist ideology in america: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-drop_rule
Hispanics are black, Russia is a cherished ally of the USA, and the Qing dynasty is a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese. 10/10

I'm surprised we have so many experts on white supremacists' views here out of a sudden. It's kinda funny that the garygreen lounge now gets to dictate (in their own minds only) what other people think, even if said people disagree.

Then again, it's not actually all that surprising. After all, you're talking about the American left's idea of "white supremacist" (which can be broadly generalised to "people we don't like"), also synonymous with "Nazis" or "people who should be punched". Again, if we rely on these non-definitions, my proclamation that Trump is Hitler is entirely as relevant or on-point as gary's shitpost.
