I believe earth is round


I believe Sunsets prove that earth is round.
What do you think?

Flat on earth, but round in space.

I never understood the whole flat Earth thing argument, I could see it myself when I stood on a high mountain the curvature of the Earth dips down into the horizon. When you look at the sun, moon and stars they are all round too.

The Earth is round, sure, but how does it float?

That's what NASA is "actually" trying to hide

It's turtles all the way down, man.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?

There's a very easy way to prove the (general) shape of the planet to yourself (and have some fun in the process). Go out and buy yourself a telescope on an equatorial mount and learn how to use it. If the earth was anything other than round(ish) the equatorial mount would not work as precisely as it does.

How is the earth round? When it has things like mountains, valleys and oceans.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

If I fail to adapt to the fault of others, it is my fault.

OK. It's round and bumpy. And kinda moist.

Well the sun is round, the moon is round, other planets are round so it's probably round.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

If you're strapped to a rocket, I'm not sure if it matters what shape the planet is.

The earth is spherical, much like most objects with enough mass. The real question is whether space is curved, or flat.

The Beatles Lyrics



"Because"

Aaaaaahhhhhh...
Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high...aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue...aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh...
Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh...
Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh...

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.
