    Do they explain why Magellan didn’t fall off the Earth and into the dragon’s maw?

      He was a member of the Illuminati and faked his voyage. Duh.

        So are all the airline pilots traveling around the world, they are part of the Conspiracy. Now, a question I have is: if the Earth is flat, what exactly is on the flat side? Maybe a “Made in China” label?

  • TO

    It is amazing that given the choice between “The Red Bull footage uses a wide angle lens” and “The Earth is flat, you fools!”, that people will choose the latter.

  • Ye Olde Statistician

    Topologically, of course, a sphere is “locally flat.”

    I didn’t think the Red Bull people were trying to prove that the Earth was round… being that it has been more or less accepted amongst educated people for hundreds if not thousands of years.

    Also, I noticed the curve in the rocket’s image too. It was small, but then again, that is what you would expect at a that altitude.

    Hey, don’t be silly, they didn’t need that video to prove the earth is flat. Just come visit me here in my home – I live in New Zealand – you won’t be standing on your head or fall off, I promise you!
