The world is flat, and much bigger than you ever guessed. There is no 'solar system'. Any pictures of the 'globe' are creations to instill faith in the globes at your library and in your schools, both institutions created to support this illusion. If you have ever been in a plane and noticed the 'curvature of the earth' it is a trick of the light. The pilot is flying to points on a map he has faith in, because he has 'seen the globe'. He has never flown where he is not allowed. He has never made a map. There are places to go in this world that you know nothing about.
I trust this is an attempt to be amusing, rather than petulance at my not blindly accepting what you're trying to assert? If it is the former, then my apologies for this post.
Good work FunkBone. Here is some more frightening proof....
We'll call that "amusing" then?
In which case, my apologies.
Are you here to debate the roundness of the world? Or the definition of round? Or maybe when I said round did I really mean roughly spherical? The world is flat and I stand by that.
You suck helium from a dick.
Those mountains are anchored to the flat earth. Aren't you more excited about the fact that Dr. Death stopped by to amuse us all with his high squeaky voice? I'm still chuckling! It's so cool/cute. Do it again! Sing the chipmunk song....no the Flintstone's theme....no - Who Let the Dogs Out! Hell, anything will do I guess. The world is flat.
Whoa! Careful there Milky! You are giving away too much!
It's just that there are many things to be understood before we can discuss the zombie issue, and sunupu is already having trouble with the basics. I'll see what I can do.
Here it is:
The image of the globe is what you have been taught to accept - one of the biggest lies you have ever been sold. In order to represent all points on this globe on a flat surface you would need to do something like this:
Spaces are created. These are the places in this world that you know nothing about. None of the images is an accurate representation of the shape of these areas, but they'll do for discussion purposes. You cannot go to these places. You will never go to most of the places you were already aware of.
I have only 5 words for you:
ROUND. THE. WORLD. YACHT. RACE.
They sail in a circle. Kill your television.
I had a friend - a University graduate in Law believe it or not - who one day let slip her belief in how the universe worked.
She truly believed that the world had 7 suns, and that some were hotter than others. That is why Africa has this huge deserty thing - because it has one of the hottest suns, whereas Europe has a cooler sun. She was adamant about this view - which she had invented as her education had never provided her with the answers.
I like these stories. Much more interesting than the real thing.
Just out of interest - in your view - what does go on at the edges? I bet there is a wall, with a banner on it of Oscar the Grouch saying "The known reality was brought to you today by Coca Cola, and the number 7"
Oh, so is this a quantum mechanics thing we are talking here? Where multi-dimensional space folds in on itself creating the illusion of length, breadth, height? We have to exist in this space as energy forms so we have to agree on what is out there - hence systems like inventions of cars and things to explain how we as energy forms are moving through space and time.
Or is it you are not FunkBone but FunkBono - that crass sunglass obsessive shit-tit, and you were distracted by your lead guitarist?
There are no edges. If you were able to walk a straight line you would keep going and going and not return to your start point. You will never be able or allowed to perform this experiment.
No, 'cause I'd walk into the fucking ocean, wouldn't I.
I don't wish to be rude Funkbone, but haven't you done this one before? The one where you lead everyone into an argument before dancing around crowing "HA! I'd already said I don't really believe in a flat earth; the clues were there from the start and because you missed them, thus I win!"
Couldn't you do something, I dunno, original?
So, like, a, your saying, a, if I continue digging my hole to China, I, a, won't get there?
Well, no, not even if the Earth was round. You'd just burn alive in the molten core of the Earth.
So that's it, at the edges of the map space just continues to infinity?
Oh hey, I didn't even read that. Still, I think it's hard to claim ownership on the idea of the Earth being round. Maybe in Galileo's time, but not now.
FB always makes me think in ways I couldn't (want to, burn!), but at the same time I question his reasoning.
Believing the Earth is flat is an expression for being behind the times. Like you say, "Hey FB, you're still playing Dreamcast?" And I say, "Please, FB's so behind the times he still thinks the Earth is flat!"
Okay, shitty example. It's been a rough day. I saved a dog from drowning at the beach and rode home in an ice cream truck.
You should start using that picture after completely serious posts, like after conspiracy arguments.
I'll leave you with just the end of a joke, no beginning.
"...and so I said, "Honey, you don't need those Graham Crackers in your mouth. I can finish fine without those!"
See, that's too animated, made it seem like I was funny. Next time pull out one of your eighty "epic fail" pictures. They always seem to get the message across.
The world is flat? Okaaay. Are you for real? I just hope that the sky doesn't fall on us.
Hobbits are real. I'm not joking. Ask FunkBone.
When politicans shake your hands, they steal your DNA and fuck your clones. Now that is a certifiable fact.
Hobbits were real. They died out though.
Keep them shining.
The marketeering alternative to discourse.
It would be fun to fuck a Hobbit.
I wouldn't, but Elijah Wood.
You'd fuck Elijah Wood?
I don't know, I think if the world was flat there would be some evidence for it. I do believe that the moon landings were faked though. The reason I believe that is because there is actually no moon. The whole moon thing is a fable created by an ancient sect which began way back in the mists of time. They started by adding the idea of a 'moon' to stories and legends, then art etc till the point where people looked up and actually saw a 'moon' such is the power of belief. This ancient sect have now infiltrated the structures of global power and their ultimate aim is to make sure everyone buys electronic goods and shitty music, which at the same time serves to distract from this ultimate truth. Where do you think the phrase 'moonshine' comes from? Or 'hogwash' for that matter? Yes.
What's the thing in the sky then?
That's the whole point. There is no 'thing in the sky' that's simply what your primitive man brain has been programmed to see.
But my boners ARE real right?
yes, but they are flat.
that wouldn't be a boner then
If you were to fold your erect penis over onto itself, it would unfurl the fabric of the space time continuum and appear to be flat, but only in that universe.
Surely you can do better than that! Put some effort in lad!
I've already done it like three times today. If I do it any more I'll bleed.
Are you unwilling then to sacrifice yourself for the cause? This may be frowned upon by the tribal elders you know.
I.. I.. I'm sorry. I'll do it twice as much to support the cause. I'm sorry headmaster.
Sorry? Can you back that up? A bag of werther's original should do the trick.
If I knew what that was.
God bless the Scots!!
Werthers originals are sheep's balls.
Caramelised sheep balls I'll have you know.
especially delicious with trombone music.
Served with piping hot pwnage.
As long as you leave the skin on.
"She had a vague impression of dwarfs crowding around the fire with frying pans rather bigger than themselves, and the hissing and delicious smell of sausages, and more and more sausages. And not wretched sausages half full of bread and soya bean either, but real meaty, spicy ones, fat and piping hot and burst and just the tiniest bit burnt."
That's just perverted.
Slightly burnt sausage is really good.
That's from C.S. Lewis's The Silver Chair. My wife was reading it to the kids the other night while I was in the kitchen nursing a bottle of wine. I felt the need to comment from the other room three or four times before she got through it...
BA, I just added you to my list of people who know what the fuck is up. It's written on cardboard. CM is crossed out like 3 times.
That's ok, bagoboy, you made my list of most intellectual black holes at number one. I made the list from my flat earth toilet and after correcting my vision with my highly advanced mind, I built a rocket ship and fake landed on the moon, all the while consorting with the taliban and Osama Bin yourmomma.
If the moon isn't real, where do the Clangers live?
Yes, which is on the fucking moon.
God, if you're going to post on scientific matters, then at least read your basic astronomy text book first.
That is heresy! Burn him!
Gentlemen, please take this to The Petty Squabbles Thread. Thank you.
You're really going to start moderating this shit? To what extent?
The iron fist of authoritarianism begins ever again, clamping down too slow to notice on our civil liberties until they are completely asphyxiated. Who shall champion for the cause of emancipation? Who shall stand tall in defiance against this insidious instillation of tyranny? Who shall remain steadfast in the pursuit of the most inherently noble and virtuous of all ideologies, the extension of freedom to all?
Who? Who amongst you possess the courage and fortitude -- and who shall fall, time and time again, losing ground, giving up ground, trading their livelihood for the chaff of despotic missrepresentation? Who shall choose to invest their pennies in an empty well of false security, a corrupted agenda of it's own self-interest?
Not I sir. Not I, and not those who would willingly choose freedom over oppression, and not Twisted Sister.
What a nice, little, colloquial way for you to leave it completely open ended to interpretation.
Fuhrer Hitler -- it is rumored -- dos yow have a plan for segregating zee German peoples?
Hooray! Though "Dos yow" is not so much a German accent as an accent from an area of Britain we term "geordie".
I am considering the possibility that the earth may be carrot-shaped, but for now I'm still going with flat.
You know what I love? Flying in an aeroplane and seeing for myself the curvature of the flat earth. It is amazing the lengths these conspirators will go to as to slightly bend the earth in all directions.
What is a more interesting conspiracy is that I read back this thread and cannot remember posting a single damn one of those comments.
AND I have a splinter in one of my typing fingers making this revelation hard to communicate with a level of accuracy.
That's the last time I finger Keira Knightley.
"Thick" of the light. Get it?
Your mom is flat. Like a board.
What is "round Funkbone's place"?
Are you part of that new garbled newscaster phenomenom?
Shit-stained severed horse cock on a fucking bun ejaculating pus in a pickle jar of conjoined twin fetuses. No, you just miss the point of everything. It is like trying to communicate with a simplistic life form from another dimension through the medium of interpretive dance. All that weed resin and Syphilis in the brain...
I have neither the intention nor desire to banter or play grabass with dicked-up sentences I have to go back and read forty times. Nor should I. Nor should anyone. If he wants to blow his coherency (among other things) don't expect me to make a fucking song and dance routine back at it, or interpret me muttering and tapping my foot as being that routine. This is the type of thing most people don't need explained to them.
You will address my member as "sir".
I mean, "His excellency, the right honourable blessed high lord supreme 12th degree archdragon master rear admiral head bishop with scrubbing bubbles."
Funkbone is obviously being facetious. You really think he believes the earth is flat?
The whole flat-earth movement in general is facetious. Nobody actually believes that shit. If the earth was flat the water would fall off the sides. Also they wouldn't have a yo-yo trick named "around the world". And also shit is just round a lot of the time. Like, you can look at shit and it will just be round. Funkbone knows that. Just because someone pisses on your leg and tells you it is raining outside doesn't mean they think we live on a Frisbee. Don't be a bird brain. Of all the harebrained schemes...
Feeling a little more Mad Hatter than Red Queen I suppose. You know why the Hatter went mad don't you?
Martha Stewart is 72 and some guy named Nathan has an eye appointment today at 10:30. One of those things was left on my voice mail.
Nothing is flatter than your posts.
Your 'girlfriend' after a puncture comes fucking close, old Flatbone.
So yous iz sayin hit iz coz I iz black?
Dere iz narr reason to be racialist whun I iz hobviously bein like self-defecatin.
If you rearrange the letters of Badgerbob you get "barbed gob". And I think they say gob instead of spit so... yeah, just another worthwhile and clever post from my peerless wit... but what's new?
If you rearrange the lettuce of Dicktor Dearth, you get an ugly looking salad.
With shit on it.
Just like you to toss my salad and complain about the taste.
You get yours assaulted.
I'm pretty sure that flat earth stuff is completely legit. Otherwise buildings would be wider at the top because plumb bobs point to the center of the earth, and Badgerbobs point to my cock.
