Flat Earth and Hollow Earth Theories
 
Are there any exponents of either of these trains of thought on this forum.

What is the basis of your Thoery that convinces you that it is more than just a theory?

I know that after a few beers the earth must be flat, as I can get home without any artificial aids, and never fall over.

If it was curved I wouldn't be able to cope.

As viable an augment as any! We have a flat-earther at work and the conversations get pretty interesting.

The hollow-earth thing is a new one to me. Going to have to GDB...

I don't know about a hollow Earth but in my college days, I WAS accused of having a hollow leg.

The strange ones are the believers in chem-trails. They have this fixation that you can some how fly an aircraft miles up in the sky, traveling at hundreds of mile per hour, and release something into the exhaust that will land, falling as an aerosol, through multiple sets of cross winds, and hit a given neighborhood on the ground.

They don't accept that it would be easier to fire a handgun from 3 miles away aiming to hit a given window than what they are proposing.

But Mark_, you really CAN choose which neighborhood that will fall in. For instance, you can easily drop your aerosol from a jet onto a selected neighborhood, for example, Kansas. It's all a matter of scale, right?

Besides, you DO need the right kind of plane for that level of accuracy. Apparently Hollywood can find them easily enough for some of their action flicks so they must be around, right?
;)

Scary thing is with an aerosol you could drop it at 30,000 ft and MISS Kansas... Helps explain how you get that spray on "Right Guard" to hit Antarctica.

After at least 15, maybe 16, minutes of exhaustive research, I have determined that the chem-trails are actually a product of the Agartheans of Hollow Earth (who have secretly taken over most of the airline pilot jobs), and they are intended to destroy the Flat Earthers. Makes perfect sense to me. Time for another beer.

I love the chemtrail people. We have a facebook page for the International Chemtrail Association even :) "Dimmer Skies are Safer Skies"

These people crack me up. Flat Earthers, I can't even... at least I can understand that someone isn't in tune enough with physics to understand particle separation, but a flat Earth? Really?

Jack, I've proven EVERY ONE OF THEM wrong any time I've talked to them. I simply point out that cats haven't knocked us over the edge yet!

I haven't run into an actual Flat Earther (or at least if I have, they've avoided the subject, which is probably not likely... they seem to be of the "INEEDTOLETEVERYKNOWHOWMUCHOFAMORONIAM!" bunch), but I'm pretty sure that if I did, I wouldn't waste my breath on a word of the subject.

The answer appears to be "No".

Or perhaps there is someone, but they daren't admit it on this forum!

So they are celebrities pushing their particular belief/political agenda???

With the exception of GoT, I haven't watched TV in probably 10 or 15 years (prefer to read), nor do I listen to any popular music (jazz and classical mostly for me, of which I play drums and piano, respectively).

Therefore, I neither know nor really care much about celebrities. Doesn't seem to bother me that much :)

Jack,

Do your musical tastes include swing? If so, I'd highly recommend Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

For the classics, I've a preference for pieces in the ilk of Firebird Suite.
