Only ten more months (or later in the proposed year?) until that cruise goes on its maiden voyage.
At least there were no defects in Emmett and Lucy.
They chose those charts on purpose so when they sail off the edge all the passengers can say “Told you so!”
I have a feeling the Coast Guard is going to be very busy that day….
So now we no why “Fight Club” was different ……Overpriced coffee!
I don’t see the point. Many times, sailors went out with charts drawn as a flat Earth. The concept of geometrical projections was unknown and nobody cared about the shape of Earth. It was more like “go that way, that far, and you’ll get there.” It doesn’t mean that the map is wrong, it’s right for that particular application, that particular route. It may not be of help in case of a change of route or a deviation to go around a storm. A lot, and I mean a LOT, of them got lost, vanished and surely died using those maps to go aro… On a second thought… Bon Voyage!!!! :D
Sheesh talk about product placement in a movie.
I now have another reason to not watch that movie.
What are the Flat Earthers going to prove unless they try and fail to sail off the edge of the earth. Whether it is flat or round according to the charts they can sail all over the earth. When Columbus made it back to Spain he reported India was a lot closer than previously thought. It took a different person to finally figure out that Columbus had not made it to India, rather found a new continent between Spain and India. Maybe I am the one confused but the Flat Earth theory doesn’t make sense to me.
Flat earthers say the earth is flat and round. Like a polar projection map. The edge of the earth is just like a polar projection map: we are surrounded by Antarctica… Which keeps the oceans from draining off the edge.
Too much caffeine; that’s what lead to all the aggression.
A lot of defective feet out there from stepping on them.
I just don’t see those Starbucks here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUXWAEX2jlg
I hope they sail off the end of the Earth.
Is this Starbuck’s way of making a scene?
I wonder if the 18 kids who got those Lego pieces had a fit. I remember buying a Transformer named Shockwave from Walgreens, and it was defective so I took it back.
Take care and may God bless.
I’m sure that flat Earth cruise is being designed by round Earth believers to prove a point.
The first thing about Starbucks is nobody talks about Starbucks
Of course earth is “round” as every globe is round. What flat earthers believe in is that earth is flat, thus their name. Although I’m not sure whether all flat-earthers really think earth is flat. Some might only pretend and think it’s a funny play.
What constitutes a defective LEGO, no pain when you step on it?
That cruise is going to be sailing for a LONG time looking for the edge…First mate to Captain: Does it seem to you like we are just going in circles?
Flat earth illustration looks like the last birthday cake I had made for a party; difference being it was a Mercator projection.
The legend can be traced, in a modern sense, to the Portuguese, Spanish, British, and French sailors who had been on ships that traveled beyond land’s sight in the Atlantic, which was rare, before the 16th century. In the Atlantic, or any ocean, with no land in sight, one can see the world is a “circle.”
As many new sailors on ships that planned on sailing beyond land’s view, and never returned, the assumption is that the ships sailed to close to the horizon and as the ends were curved downward, the ships fell off like a barrel going over Niagra Falls.
Likely as many of these ships were heading down the African Coast, or for the Portuguese, the Cape Verde or Canary Islands, the ships ran into hurricanes that were forming or other squalls, or other such disasters.
But the sailors knew the world was round, not flat. There were those Christians who did interpret the Bible as having four corners, thus the world must be flat. But that is another story.
Oh god, those flat earthers are all going to die at sea…I’ve heard their testimony at flat Earth conferences, they claim that all global travel is manipulated by GPS satellites that guide planes and ships on paths that make them think the earth is round, so if they set sail trying to prove the world is flat that means they’re going to do without any kind of modern navigation equipment. They’ll get lost and starve to death in the middle of the ocean.
So, if the earth is flat and we all live on one side, who lives on the other side?
Movies have always been used to advertise products.Most of the cars in old movies are Ford products.
The earth is not “round”.It is a sphere!
The Earth is round.But it isn’t ‘circular’.
Starbucks “fact” is totally false! Why is Ripley putting us on???
A pancake is round and yet flat as well. That’s one thing that always bugged me about “they knew the earth was spherical and not flat because of the shadow cast on the moon during an eclipse.” A flat circular earth would still cast the same shadow if the sun was “below” it.
Now seeing how the horizon makes thing “disappear” or how the angle of the sun changes the further north or south you go is definitely proof of a spherical (or at least rounded over) earth but not the fact that the shadow was curved.
If you took a cylinder and cut off two sections to make a wedge from it, then you can have it cast a round, triangular or even a square shadow depending on which way the light source hits it.
That shows poor quality control….Years ago working for a Silicon Valley Manufacturer I was made "Value Added Assembly lead for the swing shift in our new building. We had an 11 parts per million error record. that was un-acceptable.In 6 months we got it down to 3 – 5 parts per million error – ‘Industry Standard’ at that time….When you turn on your computer, or cell phone it Works…that’s what we did…
The fight began when they figured out how much they were overcharged…
The earth in the drawing IS round.
The example picture is round, it’s just not a sphere (and I know the Earth is not a perfect sphere either, but close enough for this example)
I can’t remember what happened when one got to the edge of Discworld…trampled by an elephant? Swallowed by a tortoise? Just “dispappeared?”
