Today, in flat-Earth denialism

Yeah, still could be fake to support a conspiracy;
but with the overwhelming presence of contrary data,
a flat-Earther must unambiguously answer the obvious question: Why?

Flat-Earth vids are almost as entertaining as
free-energy vids, Russian dash-cam vids,
and SJW vids

(What? Yeah, L1 would be a good place for an alien battle station to be secretly constructed. Sun’s right in our eyes)

Lingo ref (Lagrange Point, L1 in this case)
Note: Clouds ref: they reflect sunlight up (to cool) during day, reflect surface heat back down (to warm) during night… I think


Home on Lagrange ( Lord of the Fleas)
Oh give me a locus
Where the gravitons focus
Where the three-body problem is solved
Where microwaves play
Down at three degrees K
And the cold virus never evolved.

Home. Home on Lagrange.
Where the space debris always collects.
And they have, so it seems,
Two of Man’s greatest dreams –
Solar power and zero-G sex.

By the way,
you can watch Beresheet’s Moon landing live here, Thursday afternoon 3-4pm,
unless there’s some kind of weather delay.

    ^ That’s goin’ up top

    “Down at three degrees K”
    is now on my Top-10 Rhymes of All-Time list.

    A rhyme using “orange” would’a gone on top.

    Bonus points for anyone who can tell the class what the three-body problem is …

    Doug: [raises hand, waves it, stands] I know! I know!
    Teacher: Anybody else?
    Doug: Can I say “closed-form solution to Newton’s equations of motion”?
    Teacher: No
    Doug: Can I say “numerical methods”?
    Teacher: No. Give somebody in the Victim Studies Program a chance.
