Curvature of the earth via horizontal image compression

Jeran talks about the horizontal image compression which is said to bring out the curvature of the earth. Runtime 9m

OK, you can have that one. Pretty crappy reasoning from those guys.
Just goes to show you there are stupids on both sides.
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

I lol’d. I guess this denonstrates the importance of understanding your instrument. Thinking that a compression resulting in monotonic curvature somehow much be indicative of the Earth’s shape is frankly bizarre. If this was the case, we’d all be sliding off the lower end!
The fact.that it's an old equation without good.demonstration of the underlying mechamism behind it makes.it more invalid, not more valid!
