Don't go down this route Paul, you'll wander into the whole "planes would fly into space if you didn't keep adjusting nose down, but they don't do that. Therefore the earth is flat"

Then your head will fall off.

Have you seen the guy that took a spirit level on a plane?

Yep. Just as I explained.

The poor fool insisted that if the Earth was a sphere, then the plane would need to point downwards slightly in order to compensate for the curvature of the Earth. The spirit level, however, showed that the plane was level when at cruising altitude.  Eek Eek Eek

This thing called gravity and the angle of attack of aircraft was explained to him. They were probably just Nasa shills leading the people away from the truth though, obviously.

THE TRUTH:



So the quickest route from London to Sydney is to fly over the "North Pole", or do we now have to call it "Central Tundra"? Planes consistently head off in the wrong direction, yet still arrive. And what do "north" and "south" even mean any more? And climate? How to explain the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn? Why would there be belts of similar temperature?

How do these people even navigate getting food into their mouths? My head hurts already. I'm out.

The best one I saw was a guy who's proof of the earth being flat was that water finds its level and therefore wouldn't be able to stick to a globe.

Which he ably demonstrated by firing a hosepipe jet of water onto a football in his back garden.

Three things at the moment, but nothing new.

- Rubbish. Why can people not put their rubbish in bin, or take it home? Looks disgusting.
- Dog Poo. Pick it up people. Donít just leave it. Even if it by the side of the path.
- Parking. People park on pavements (literally their whole car on the pavement), on dropped kerbs, on bends, junctions. The bit outside asda is for dropping people off. Itís not the car park.

I think as a nation we are very lazy. Too far to walk, to lazy to pick stuff up.

Worst place for kerb parking is bottom of Vic Hill around 7. Mums dropping off their little dahlings to some dance studio.

And at top of Vic Hill around the fast food shops.

I should've been on the way to Alton Towers but the snow's put paid to that.

On the plus side, the kids are stranded at the in-laws.
