Locations on a bi-polar flat earth

This question is for Tom Bishop or other bi-polar believers: do you agree with the second map of the earth in this Wiki page: http://wiki.tfes.org/Layout_of_the_Continents ?

If so, then how can a flight from Sydney to LA be only 13 hours according to expedia.com? The bipolar model is interesting but this is a stumbling block.

A highly improbable and super massive conspiracy amongst all global airlines is about all I've seen as an explanation.

The model given in the original description of the Bi-Polar model in the book "The Sea-Earth Globe and it's Monstrous Hypothetical Motions" did not illustrate the layout of the continents, but provided an illustration consisting of two circles with N and S points centered within it, and paths illustrating the motions of the sun. A continental layout was not provided.

The continental layout you see there is a map projection which was found on the internet, which has 0 degrees East as the center point. No such layout claim is published in the literature. The map seen is for illustration purposes only.

First, no. It centers on the line 0o. (Note that the Prime Meridan does not have "east" or "west" descriptors as you use. Note that it's a line, not a point.

I've asked before when is the edge of this model and you produced this map. Were you wrong or just misleading?

So, now, tell us where is the edge of this model and why haven't anyone reported, ignoring Thork's allusion to a fantasy, reaching it, or even anyplace beyond the edge? Surely we should be fishing those waters at least.
Don't rely on FEers for history or physics.
