    Fair enough. Last year I would have said such a strategy was doomed to failure, but then Trump happened and it turned out there are enough people in the US that are dumb enough to want to destroy their own country that they just might succeed.

    No, what your really mean is you would NEVER actually do work to provide evidence, That is YOUR MO, deny deny deny.

    So try me, get a frigging cheapo telescope and take an image like the one of Chicago I provided.
    I'm not inclined, frankly.
    Put forth your own effort.

    You are the one making the ridiculous claims so it is up to YOU to provide evidence. In not doing so you just embarrass yourself.

    I've already offered plenty of directional prods for anyone with half a brain to pursue, and we both know beyond knowing that no matter what I offer in terms of appearance will be rejected by you on some spurious reason unrelated to the facts.

    I contend anyone can see objects which should be below the horizon.
    Further, I claim there are hundreds and thousands of examples throughout the world, with many or these presented online.
    If you haven't researched it yourself yet, no amount of pictures I offer will convince you, either.

    Pretty much every one of us who were old enough to be cognizant of what has happening on that fateful day in January of 1986 when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded in the air above the Atlantic Ocean 73 seconds after lift off remember where we were when the news came out.
    It was a pretty big deal, right?

    What you ...[text shortened]... exploded are alive and well today.
    What are the odds, right?

    Please thumb down responsibly.
    You truly are an insufferable git.

    When I stand on the beach at Eastbourne, in the South of England, I can't see anything of France even though it's only about 45 miles away. Why?

    Even if I go up nearby Beachy Head (a cliff about 500 feet high and a popular suicide spot) I still can't see anything of France. Why?

    Perhaps Freaky lives at the only flat spot on Earth. Or perhaps he's talking BS.

    I'l go with option #2. At eye level, 45 miles away, you could only see somthing about 1350 feet in the air. Doubt there would be anything that tall close to the beach in France, but don;t know for sure.

    The freak claims he sees the bottom of the buildings across the water I think 30 odd miles away. I dared him to give us an image with a telescope to verify that claim but he refuses.

    He says, I am only a few hours drive away, why don't I come up there and do it myself.

    Of course even if I did that and had photographic proof you only see part of the buildings where the bulge in the water would block imaging the bottom half he would just move the goalpost again like he always does.

    I don't think there's anything that tall in the whole of France. However France is a fairly big object in itself and I would expect to be able to see some of it from 45 miles ( unless Freaky is wrong about the Earth's flatness).

    He's either trolling or completely nuts. I think it's the former, but either way it's a lost cause. Keep trying though if it fulfills you!

    Well my job here is mostly looking up stuff to buy, boring, or utter panic when one of my sputtering machines takes a dump. When they die, If I don't fix them, the company grinds to a screeching halt, all the parts we make, 99% anyway gets coated with SIC and I have to keep them running.

    So when everything runs I have comp time so I do internet till the next crisis or our resident Phd has a project for me. I wear several hats here.

    So it is mildly entertaining to keep bugging this troll to produce real evidence of his 'sightings' of bottoms of buildings 30 miles away and the rest of his delusions, the sun is only a few thousand miles up, the moon is even closer and maybe 30 miles across AND is a self emitting body, GPS doesn't come from sateliites but ground stations, and I pointed out they work just fine in the middle of the Pacific ocean thousands of miles from any land, doesn't phase him.

    NASA ALWAYS lies, nobody when to the moon, the space programs of the entire planet are ALL faked.

    Coriolis effect is bogus (flatassers can't have a spinning Earth)

    And on and on.

    nobody ever flew over the entirety of Antarctica or circumnavigated it since in the flatasss universe Antarctica is a ring around the flat planet.

    NASA imaged ALL of Antarctica but of course that is pronounced a fake by the freak since NASA ALWAYS LIES.

    Etc. Etc. Etc.

    Even your insults are tired.
    Perhaps that concealer you use can work its magic on these thread-bare puffs.

    Forget seeing the ground or the buildings below.
    How are the stacks at all visible?
    How can the turbine be seen in its entirety?
