Check it out! Flat earth!!!

2020-02-22 21:46:59 UTC

_“But, but...it’s all CGI!!”_

2020-02-22 21:47:43 UTC

We need some flat-earthers in here to clear this up for us.

2020-02-23 11:09:14 UTC

🥁

2020-02-28 00:20:50 UTC

do we really have to have a channel about flat earth or globe earth

2020-02-28 00:21:49 UTC

we all know the earth is a hologram being projected from the moon

2020-02-28 19:54:54 UTC

@Flat Earth Subgenius hey bro, how does gravity work on a flat earth?

2020-03-05 05:20:19 UTC

How about either a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse? How do those work on a flat earth model?

2020-03-05 05:20:35 UTC

Come on.

2020-03-05 05:21:25 UTC

You mean no Flat Earther is going to come in here and destroy us Globe-Heads?

@𝓡𝓪𝓰𝓰𝓪𝓶𝓾𝓯𝓯𝓲𝓷 hey look a place to share your views

2020-03-06 18:26:35 UTC

I believe we should focus on God and not things we can't comprehend. We all know nasa is a lie, we've never truely been to space, have we? Either way, it's beyond my knowledge and frankly, my care. All I care about is doing God's will and hopefully save some souls

2020-03-06 18:28:01 UTC

@Deleted User hey where there is written that Earth is flat

2020-03-06 18:28:56 UTC

The whole debate is just another public viral hoax to seperate us further. Just another way satan is creeping his way into the Christian/truther community. "divide and conquer" Yeah right. But that's just my opinion

2020-03-06 18:29:56 UTC

@Deleted User tell me where it is written that Earth is flat

2020-03-06 18:30:37 UTC

@Deleted User NASA can be a liar but Earth can't be flat

@Wonders in the Wasteland is that your area?

NASA Warns Two Asteroids Could Cause Atmospheric Explosion Over Earth This Week

https://themindunleashed.com/2020/03/nasa-warns-two-asteroids-could-cause-atmospheric-explosion-over-earth-this-week.html

> "Make sure you don’t stare at it with the naked eye, similar to how you shouldn’t stare directly at the sun, no matter how curious you may be.
>
> 2020 DP4 is coming our way and will cause a similar space spectacle this week on March 22nd at 2:36 p.m EST. Compared to 2020 EF, 2020 DP4 is much larger in diameter at 180 feet wide and traveling at a faster velocity rate at 18,000 mph according to CNEOS.
>
> While 2020 EF is classified as an Aten asteroid, 2020 DP4 on the other hand belongs to the Apollo family of space rocks. Although the two asteroids are labeled differently, they are known to intersect Earth’s orbit as the planet makes its way around the Sun.
>
> CNEOS states 2020 EF is expected to fly past the Earth from a distance of 0.04241 astronomical units or approximately 4 million miles. Meanwhile, 2020 DP4 will approach Earth from a much closer distance which according to CNEOS, is only 0.00901 astronomical units or around 840,000 miles."

2020-03-20 07:35:00 UTC

ive never seen a shooting star or meteroite for that matter

2020-03-20 07:35:03 UTC

.
2020 EF already flew by, but 2020 DP4 is headed our way.

Nose hill sees Chestermere. Nose Hill sees Airdrie. Calgary tallest apartment sees the other tallest apartment.

2020-04-16 02:01:54 UTC

There are multiple US military documents in regards to trajectory which say “assume flat earth.” The Bible has more than 200 references to the earth being stable and unmoved. It says “circle of the earth.” The Hebrew word for circle and ball/sphere are different.

2020-04-16 02:02:38 UTC

Look at the UN’s map. That is more than likely correct.

2020-04-19 07:47:31 UTC

Greek astronomers were aware almost 300 years before the time of Christ that the Earth was round.

This just happened on _The Edge_ discord server that replaced _The Wall_ server that vanished.

2020-04-19 21:09:56 UTC

They ban for asking why others were banned.

2020-04-19 21:10:08 UTC

It's great for their cause.

2020-04-19 22:09:43 UTC

(Yes, they banned me for asking why someone else was banned. My entire interaction is right there in that screen shot 👆 )

2020-04-20 01:25:41 UTC

@Karnivore can you get me an invite?

2020-04-20 01:25:57 UTC

Kay got me one.

2020-04-20 01:26:51 UTC

The one she sent me seems expired now.

2020-04-20 01:27:23 UTC

Does it say invalid for you, too?

2020-04-20 01:28:38 UTC

I’d like to know who the owner of that server is, so we could have a chat.

2020-04-20 01:33:56 UTC

@Deleted User make sure you screen shot everything often, because they are very ban happy.

2020-04-20 01:34:03 UTC

It goes with their low IQ.

2020-04-20 01:34:52 UTC

A scouting mission would probably be more prudent and fruitful, although a round of flying fists of fury would be fun.

2020-04-20 01:34:53 UTC

Best is to just not try to police the mods, they get really triggered

2020-04-20 01:36:10 UTC

Hi, Riggs. I didn’t police anyone. I simply was curious why the person conducting a 100% legitimate, civil conversation was banned.

2020-04-20 01:36:53 UTC

If you were a mod that would be acceptable speech over there

2020-04-20 01:37:02 UTC

otherwise it's deemed concern trolling

2020-04-20 01:37:24 UTC

I don't agree with how the server is run, just relaying the culture

2020-04-20 01:38:04 UTC

I doubt the mod cares about discussing his reasons with you, so probably just skip the effort

2020-04-20 01:38:33 UTC

Thanks for the new invite.

2020-04-20 01:38:53 UTC

Riggs, can you confirm if I was actually banned or only kicked?

2020-04-20 01:39:41 UTC

banned

2020-04-20 01:41:36 UTC

That’s what I thought.

2020-04-20 01:41:48 UTC

Who is the owner of that server?

Keyword civil

2020-04-20 01:47:32 UTC

I also read that before I posted, @Deleted User

2020-04-20 01:48:43 UTC

You're obviously not civil by asking questions

2020-04-20 01:49:11 UTC

It doesn’t really help their cause.

2020-04-20 01:53:40 UTC

Hid the evidence also

2020-04-20 01:57:18 UTC

Yeah, they deleted all the ban notifications, too.

2020-04-20 01:58:50 UTC

I used to go back and read the historical posts in their old The Wall server. Now it makes sense that the posts were all very odd.

2020-04-20 01:59:18 UTC

They ban so many people over there, deleting their posts, then also cleaning up any proof of their existence.

2020-04-20 01:59:40 UTC

And they leave the original replies from other folks in place.

2020-04-20 02:00:17 UTC

So when you go back and read anything, you’re getting 50% (or less) of the conversations.

👆 Click the Object link, which opens the JPL page. Then click Orbit Diagram. When the orbit diagram opens, click Earth (to recenter on Earth), then zoom with your scroll wheel. Now drag the map around with your mouse to see from varying angles how the object will pass by Earth.

Perhaps she needs to choose her words more wisely.

2020-04-26 02:31:55 UTC

I just hit replay on that above video that Riggs posted. It took them 25 minute to reach **ANY** content whatsoever that pertained to the title of this video. This is a complete shitshow.

2020-04-26 02:35:25 UTC

Travis (the white guy) is a total jackass.

2020-04-26 02:35:40 UTC

He doesn't even know the definition of density or weight.

2020-04-26 02:36:18 UTC

Travis simply likes to hear himself talk. He wants to sound important.

2020-04-26 02:36:38 UTC

He's not a thinker; he's a bullshit artist.

Travis has a room temperature IQ, no doubt.

2020-04-26 02:56:02 UTC

OMG...Sean G just asked Travis what weighs more: a 10 pound bag of bricks, or a 10 pound bag of feathers.

Flat earthers cannot even agree with each other on a model for a flat earth.

2020-04-27 15:56:32 UTC

Boats disappear from the bottom up. I have seem this with my own eyes, sailing for weeks on the ocean.

2020-04-27 15:57:18 UTC

Also, flat earthers have absolutely no legitimate explanation for gravity.

2020-04-27 16:00:52 UTC

The moon is tidally locked to the earth. If the earth were flat, then why does everyone on earth always see the exact same picture of the moon, when looking at it? If earth were flat, then the pictures of it from different locations on the surface if the earth would also be different.

2020-04-27 16:04:26 UTC

The voice of this guy talking in the video certainly sounds like that Travis moron from the previous video. He has already proven that he’s completely clueless and only wants to be argumentative.

2020-04-27 16:08:17 UTC

Not a single flat earth model can predict or explain a solar or lunar eclipse.

2020-04-27 16:08:43 UTC

No flat earth model can explain tides.

2020-04-27 16:09:43 UTC

No flat earth model can explain known distances between cities on a map.

2020-04-27 16:10:48 UTC

No flat earth model can explain why the sun doesn’t go down in the arctic, during some months of the year.

2020-04-27 16:10:57 UTC

No flat earth model can explain seasons.

2020-04-27 16:11:48 UTC

No flat earth model can explain satellites in orbit above earth.

2020-04-27 16:12:06 UTC

No flat earth model can explain how GPS works.

2020-04-27 16:12:56 UTC

Eratosthenes figured out that earth was round 2,000 years ago.

2020-04-27 16:14:52 UTC

👆 It can be proven by simply using more than two locations, which flat earth cannot explain.

2020-04-27 16:16:12 UTC

Is there a #SpaceIsFake chat

2020-04-27 16:17:00 UTC

While standing within the Northern Hemisphere, the stars rotate a different direction than they do when standing within the Southern Hemisphere.

2020-04-27 16:17:05 UTC

Also, I'm not saying the earth is flat, but most flat earth people are more about not trusting the elites because they lie quite a lot, at least this is what friends of mine in the Flat Earth movement have told me

2020-04-27 16:18:29 UTC

One must not retard their intellect, in order to question something.

2020-04-27 16:19:06 UTC

Yes this is true, but the actual Flat Earth movement started as a meme, like the Birds Are Fake movement

2020-04-27 16:19:20 UTC

But then it developed into morons congregating

2020-04-27 16:19:57 UTC

There are two kinds of flat earthers: the ones that sell the tee-shirts, and the ones that buy them.

2020-04-27 16:20:17 UTC

So tell me who has an agenda.

2020-04-27 16:20:24 UTC

Tell me who is lying.

2020-04-27 16:20:29 UTC

I would buy a flat earth tee shirt, that's hilarious

2020-04-27 16:20:35 UTC

Tell me who is manipulating whom.

2020-04-27 16:20:56 UTC

You mean on a broader level or a more narrow level?

2020-04-27 16:21:03 UTC

Any level.

2020-04-27 16:21:23 UTC

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking to be honest

2020-04-27 16:21:53 UTC

If you're asking about manipulation I can tell you that the government lies about most things

2020-04-27 16:22:13 UTC

Those that push the flat earth agenda are either part of those wishing to manipulate, or are too short-sighted to understand that they are being manipulated.

2020-04-27 16:22:37 UTC

Governments lie. That is true.

2020-04-27 16:22:40 UTC

Why would manipulation for the idea of the earth being flat need to occur? Who does that give power to?

2020-04-27 16:23:29 UTC

It gives power to the manipulators.

2020-04-27 16:23:49 UTC

But what can they do with that power?

2020-04-27 16:24:09 UTC

Something like a few people following a crackpot theory about the earth actually being flat

2020-04-27 16:24:19 UTC

How much power is that, and what can be done with it?

2020-04-27 16:25:49 UTC

If enough cognitive dissonance can be sewn into the minds of those who refuse or are too dumb to understand, then those minds can be taken over with other crackpot ideas.

2020-04-27 16:26:46 UTC

I suppose this is true, yes

2020-04-27 16:28:19 UTC

The minds of the masses will become so muddied with the false ideas that the manipulators have imprinted upon them, that those manipulated persons will cease to be able to make good, intelligent, rational decisions.

2020-04-27 16:28:55 UTC

And this happens while the manipulators see everything crystal clear.

2020-04-27 16:30:10 UTC

Yes but

2020-04-27 16:30:17 UTC

How much power can be taken from a few morons?

2020-04-27 16:30:50 UTC

The manipulators retain perfect cognitive thought processes, although evil to the core, while those being manipulated completely lose their ability to discern truth from fiction.

2020-04-27 16:31:01 UTC

It would not be able to sustain a civilization, because a civilization needs intelligence to exist and evolve

2020-04-27 16:31:02 UTC

A few morons are growing into many.

2020-04-27 16:31:37 UTC

Flat Earth?

2020-04-27 16:31:53 UTC

Like I said, many of them just distrust what they are told by the elites

2020-04-27 16:32:10 UTC

Most of them are not moronic nor actually believe the earth is flat

2020-04-27 16:32:43 UTC

You underestimate the minimal amount of morons required to be turned loose in the world , before the consequences are seen.

2020-04-27 16:33:05 UTC

What consequences would that create?

2020-04-27 16:34:51 UTC

That paves the way for civilization to go backwards.

2020-04-27 16:36:12 UTC

Also, it does not matter if someone believes if the earth is flat, if that is the agenda they are pushing.

2020-04-27 16:36:56 UTC

But in a way many conspiracy theories can be seen like this and none of them have had such consequences

2020-04-27 16:37:15 UTC

For example I'm of the mind that that 9/11 was some kind of inside job

2020-04-27 16:38:03 UTC

This is not about one or two manipulations occurring, it is 10,000 of them happening all at once.

2020-04-27 16:38:39 UTC

There are those that wish to bring chaos into every aspect of your life.

2020-04-27 16:40:36 UTC

Flat earth is only one pathway into the mind of those that either wish to join the manipulation, or those too stupid (not too ignorant, as ignorance can be cured with knowledge) to see the truth and therefore recognize the manipulation.

2020-04-27 16:42:07 UTC

Things like YouTube act as a huge magnification lens. Those that wish to be manipulated get manipulated much, MUCH easier via YouTube.

2020-04-27 16:42:49 UTC

Those that wish to seek knowledge do indeed find more knowledge than they could ever take in within their entire lifetime.

2020-04-27 16:43:30 UTC

The problem is that many people do not have discernment.

2020-04-27 16:44:25 UTC

Not only discernment to tell fact from fiction, but also discernment to take into consideration what impact these things do or do not have in their lives.

2020-04-27 16:45:53 UTC

People become completely consumed with topics or ideas where either outcome should have very little to no impact on their lives.

2020-04-27 16:46:11 UTC

And yet they allow their lives to be destroyed by it.

2020-04-27 16:47:05 UTC

Now add 9,999 more of these manipulations to their situation.

2020-04-27 16:47:55 UTC

There are live video feeds from space that show that the earth is a sphere, yet people don’t believe it.

2020-04-27 16:49:24 UTC

There are endless calculations that have been done for 2,000 years, proving that the earth is a sphere.

2020-04-27 16:50:42 UTC

Yet some jackass with a YouTube channel and tee shirts for sale can convince millions of people around the world that the earth is flat, **WITHOUT ONE SHRED OF EVIDENCE**.

2020-04-27 16:50:58 UTC

The devil is truly at work.

2020-04-27 16:51:09 UTC

That’s what this all boils down to.

2020-04-28 07:55:10 UTC

You have a lot of anger

2020-04-28 07:57:41 UTC

Might wanna look into that first

2020-04-28 08:03:28 UTC

Just forget all the YouTube stuff. Start here

2020-04-28 08:04:18 UTC

Flat earth isnt a youtube-centric thing

2020-04-28 08:04:29 UTC

It's literally the original cosmology

2020-04-28 08:04:50 UTC

It's the wheel of cosmologies

2020-04-28 18:02:32 UTC

_A lot of anger_, eh? Is that your ‘professional’ opinion, @Rigg5? I'm stumped as to how you could come to that conclusion. I've reread all of my own postings, since you posted that Sean G vs. Travis debate video (yes, I quoted your posting of it in <#627030086964740096>, then I moved it here). I see no indication of anger from me whatsoever. Did you perhaps read what I posted while unintentionally still having an unnecessary e-rage filter installed on your input channel? Perhaps your inputs need a bit of cleaning or other maintenance, or perhaps they were simply mis-calibrated. Perhaps you simply don't know what anger is.

My replies are still up there 👆 , so please feel free to go read them again without the e-rage input filter installed. I mean, unless you also go by the name Travis and have a penchant for guys named Sean G. to make you look like an imbecile on live YouTube streams, then there should be no reason for a third party to make any strange leap in the direction that you have. In the event that you are Travis, please just go ahead and confirm it for me now. I'm confident that you'll be better off in the end.

Continuing to set the chat about earth aside for just another brief moment, why are you trying to cast a certain shade of light onto me, with this obviously false accusation of anger that you've made? I find it very interesting that you choose a personal offensive attack against me, rather than a discussion about the topic at hand. Why did you not initially choose instead to support or deny my statements about a flat earth model being incapable of explaining the many line items that I listed right off the top of my head? Are you Travis?

2020-04-28 18:04:20 UTC

Now, regarding the link you posted of Hickson's _Kings dethroned_ book, perhaps you didn't know that this book has been entirely debunked. (Or perhaps you did know, but you were hoping that I did not…) The content within this book was considered so spectacularly wrong, that in 1989 it was classified by the archivists at MIT as a member of their "Nut Collection". In case you’re wondering what that means, it is a loving term for useless research that has absolutely **NO BEARING** on the scientific community.

Maybe the archivists at MIT have _a lot of anger that they might want to look into_, too.

2020-04-28 18:08:14 UTC

> Hickson’s work is not alone in that collection, but it certainly stands out for its spectacular inaccuracy and the high degree of hubris it displays. Today’s, Hickson’s view (and his prideful certainty) that the earth is quite close to the sun, is considered almost laughable. Indeed, it may even sit aside other erroneous theories such as that old view that the earth is flat. However, what makes Hickson’s views more easily criticized is that he was working in a time with access to more data and better scientific equipment to avoid such erroneous conclusions. Further, Hickson was indeed overly prideful when he wrote his work and it makes his own inaccuracy all the much more ironic. He had proclaimed that his work would dethrone the great ‘kings’ of the field. However, their reigns were left solidly in tact and rather than sitting atop his own throne, he is considered to have no relevance in the field (aside from being a footnote example of faulty findings).

2020-04-28 18:08:31 UTC

> As a modern reader, with sometimes limited time, you may wonder if you should put forth the effort to read Kings Dethroned. In many cases, yes you should make the time. The book is iconic for putting forth erroneous information and it does highlight the hubris of a man who thought he had it all figured out. If you are in the field of science, why not read a book that will broaden your understanding for the field and the scope of its history. Hickson’s work should not just be a footnote of inaccuracy, it should be considered as a work that does have a place in the history of the development of the field of astronomy. When you read the book King’s Dethroned, you may find yourself sometimes feeling astonished at Hickson’s thought processes, conclusions, and written statements. Read it as a bit of scientific history. Read it as a source of entertainment. Read it so you have some fun trivia to share at parties. Finally, read it as a warning against exercising any similar levels of hubris in your own scientific work.

2020-04-28 18:24:51 UTC

It is not surprising that flat earthers consider Gerrard Hickson, the overconfident, arrogant, blundering idiot that he was, to be their godfather.

2020-04-28 19:36:15 UTC

Im sorry, i missed any of the evidence in that monologue

2020-04-28 19:39:05 UTC

Evidence of what?

2020-04-28 19:39:13 UTC

You posted a video.

2020-04-28 19:39:17 UTC

I addressed the video.

2020-04-28 19:39:33 UTC

You gave me a personal attack, then linked to a debunked book.

2020-04-28 19:39:44 UTC

Now you ask me for evidence of some kind.

2020-04-28 19:39:46 UTC

I posted a friends debate stream because i was being nice

2020-04-28 19:39:52 UTC

Perhaps you need to learn how to communicate.

2020-04-28 19:40:05 UTC

A friend?

2020-04-28 19:40:43 UTC

I suppose it doesn't matter which one was your friend.

2020-04-28 19:41:08 UTC

But I was under the impression that you wanted folks to see the content of said stream, then comment and discuss it.

2020-04-28 19:41:12 UTC

Was I mistaken?

2020-04-28 19:41:13 UTC

Ahh yes that video. It presented evidence. Did you watch it?

2020-04-28 19:41:47 UTC
2020-04-28 19:42:31 UTC

Given the fact that I commented on the first 25 minutes of the video, then transcribed at least several additional minutes of the video, that would indeed be evidence that I watched at least 30+ minutes of the video.

2020-04-28 19:42:38 UTC

Did you miss the part where I typed words here?

2020-04-28 19:42:54 UTC

or did you simply launch into your personal attack without even reading what I had written?

2020-04-28 19:43:31 UTC

Your tone is so disgruntled i probably missed it.

2020-04-28 19:48:58 UTC

My apologies. Nearly all of my above posts from just a few minutes ago only apply to the video between Sean G and Travis.

2020-04-28 19:51:57 UTC

Regarding the video you originally posted and just reposted a few minutes ago, I have only skipped through it , watching approximately 2-3 minutes of it so far.

2020-04-28 21:07:36 UTC

I have still only been able to view a few minutes of this above video between minutes 1 through 6.

2020-04-28 21:09:02 UTC

So far, pointing out that a test might have been flawed would only prove that a test might have been flawed.

2020-04-28 22:10:55 UTC

Regarding the power line masts going across Lake Pontchartrain:

👆 CGI rendering of the power line masts that follow the curvature of the earth, over the top of a picture taken.

2020-04-28 22:13:04 UTC

Looks like a damn near perfect example of proof of earth's curvature.

2020-04-28 22:14:21 UTC

Here is a pretty good earth curvature calculator, in case you didn't see it already:

2020-04-28 22:17:41 UTC

I have no idea what that helicopter disappearing below the horizon business is all about, and I'm not going to dissect it. I don't consider much of anything coming from the Discovery Channel to not include some percentage of bullshit, either accidentally or intentionally.

2020-04-28 22:39:57 UTC

Next, how difficult can it be to find 24 hour time-lapse footage of the sun never going down in Antarctica?

2020-04-28 22:47:49 UTC

False premise comes to mind.

2020-04-28 22:48:35 UTC

Instead of using broken time-lapse footage of Antarctica, claiming that because the footage is broken, that means the sun must go down, why not just find unbroken footage?

2020-04-28 22:50:28 UTC

That took me less than 30 seconds to find that video, and less than 4 minutes to witness at least two full 24 hour, unbroken turns of the sun. The sun doesn't go down in Antarctica, during parts of the year.

2020-04-28 22:54:05 UTC

On the other side of the globe, in Alaska's northernmost village, Barrow, far above the Arctic Circle, the sun doesn't set for 84 days.

2020-04-28 22:56:51 UTC

Also notice that the shadows in the Antarctica Midnight Sun 24-Hour Time Lapse video are all very long or very, very long.

2020-04-28 23:23:27 UTC

Lastly, using a Netflix movie from 2013 as proof that the sun doesn't go down, based solely on their choice of when to splice the loop is a problem.

2020-04-28 23:25:38 UTC

**SEVEN YEARS** it took you to find that bad splice video and now claim it as bullet-proof evidence of something other than a clip from a movie.

2020-04-28 23:49:53 UTC

Then an additional time lapse video from 2015 was used that had text overlays for North, West, South, and East. The starburst effect was perhaps dressed up, but the watch was clearly not fake. Besides the text and starburst overlay, you can't prove a damn thing was fake in that video.

Why didn't you also include the part at the end of this 2015 original video that shows the secondary time lapse camera capturing time lapse pictures of the primary time lapse camera following the sun automatically and snapping photos to create the original video with? Quite telling that it's left out, isn't it? The wrist watch is clearly visible spinning around in front of the primary camera, even though the deceptive narrator **CLEARLY** says that _"the wrist watch is a computer graphic"_.

How about this: Since I'm 100% certain that the creator of the Globebusters YouTube video you posted **KNEW** about the evidence that he conveniently left out at the end of that 2015 video, he has completely discredited himself, and thusly, the entire video. In for a penny, in for a pound, eh? Don't lie honest people and they won't know you as a liar.

2020-04-28 23:50:53 UTC

👇 Below is the 2015 video that your boy conveniently left out the footage of the secondary camera filming the primary one, with the wrist watch in clear view.

> In the summer time at Scott Base the sun is above the horizon for 4 months, from roughly the end of the third week of October until the end of the third week of February. This shows the movement of the sun over a full 24 hour period near the peak of summer.

> Camera was set to take a photo once every one minute and one second (so that the second hand would be moving) should have made it 1min and 2 secs so the send hand would move faster than the minute hand in retrospect. ISO 100, 100th sec exposure. Lens was set on f22 to get enough depth of field to have the watch and horizon both in focus, hence the sun-ray effect. A modified Orion equatorial telescope mount was used to track the sun. Camera and tracking powered by solar panel and batteries.

My challenge to you: put your money where your mouth is and book a cruise ship holiday to Antarctica below the Antarctic circle to prove the video wrong. I'll even reimburse the cost of your trip if you can prove the sun does not do this as shown in this video... Edit: Years later, cue sound of crickets, despite 40,000 tourists and thousands of researchers and workers going to Antarctica every year, no one has taken me up on this offer.

It's funny as hell, because only after posting the text 👆 under the 2015 video on YouTube did I just now read the post script, calling out the Flat Earth people with the entertaining comments. Bold for emphasis absolutely fucking added:
