    The US had done that @KBU2 We've gone around more times than i can remember and there was always a curve. If the world were flat there wouldn't be time zones.

    Rumor has it that many Flat-Earthers if not all actually use smartphones with rounded corners and curved edges.

    I thought the Earth was Square because I've already been to two corners of the planet now I'm looking for the other two:D

    If the Earth is flat, a 3,000mAh battery should last at lest two weeks before you have to charge it.

    yes.. there were some that guessed that they lived on a round object.
    but like the general public still believed it was flat.

    reverse of today... most agree it is round
    some.. small group think it is flat


    my basic common sense.. and low power of deductions...
    tells me ... it is round.
    dont need 10 billion.. dont need 10 million... dont need 10 dollars.

    but i guess u are being sarcastic.. so :p

    Like I said I thought the Earth was Square because I've already visited two corners of the globe and hope to visit the other two before I die.:D

    Okay genius have you ever heard the term of visiting four corners of the globe? Or maybe you're not old enough to remember terms like that considering that I'm kicking 62 in the balls.

    Umm.. Not really..
    4 corners to a (2 dimensional) 'Square' &amp; there's 8 corners to a 'Cube' (3 dimensional).. Just an FYI

    The expression "travelling the 4 corners of the earth" (not the globe, since a globe is spherical by definition ;) ) comes from days when navigation was done with flat, usually rectangular, maps. If you drew a line from one corner to the other until you connect back to the first corner would draw a box around the whole world, meaning you've been everywhere. You could also have said traveled to the 4 corners, meaning you've just gone someplace very far away. Eventually the phrase was changed to the far corners of the (earth, solar system, galaxy, universe, cosmos).

    None of those things have corners .... except the maps.

    the other person said SQUARE .. GLOBE.
    that is makes it 3D in any language. = Cube

    and of course mr. lunatic59 is correct... 4 corners refers to a map.. which is 2D.

    .............

    moving forward...
    i would like to have a conversation with a flat-earthier ... that is able to have "reasonable" conversation.

    see how they line things up

    I fear that is a forlorn hope pretty much by definition.

    That's not where I heard the rainbows come from ... but manes, sure, why not. ;)

    FWIW, all the unicorns fell off the edge of the earth.
