Flat Earth: Where did the Ball Earth Idea Come From Anyway?

To consider that some of the most fundamental things you believe about the very earth you live on may be on a sandy foundation is a very difficult thing.

To even open your mind to this idea means that you are willing to consider that the world is even worse than you originally thought it was.

From my experience, it seems that most people are willing to entertain that 9/11 was an inside job fairly easily.

They are also willing to accept that the world’s financial system is built by masonic buddies with some clear and secret agenda involving governments and big companies.  They  know there is something up with this ‘illuminati thing’.

They are very easily able to accept that greedy corporations and corrupt governments make decisions that hurt the masses and benefit a small few.

There are also countless people who have very little difficulty believing that no one has been to the moon.

There are, however, very few people who are willing to entertain the idea that the earth is flat and that humans are the very focal point of everything that is.

For the latter group, it seems that they know that if they take that step and start considering the possibility that they will end up in a canyon of disappointment, despair, and sadness too large to bear.

And so instead they ridicule the idea and rule it out without reviewing the case in court.  They regurgitate the fallacy that the flat earth was dead hundreds of years ago and that only fools or tin hat folks would believe this.

News flash: The Flat Earth Is Not Dead!

For those who wish to start looking at this topic with logic, intelligence and an open mind, I recommend the following video which is a buffet of good information, specifically the history of how the ball earth dominated what was scientifically, at the time, as flat as a pancake.

Great Tutorial on Difference Between and Usage of i.e. and e.g.

This tutorial written over at wikihow.com is an absolutely amazingly clear lesson about how to use i.e. and e.g. correctly.  It seems as though my school system never taught me about these two bad boys and life was too busy to bother so I always defaulted to ‘eg’.

Turns out I was wrong to do so and probably looked a bit un-edumacated.

So, enjoy their post and remember that it’s never too late to teach an old, mangey, stinky, street dog new tricks.

Awesome Coffee Interview: Get Coffee Educated

I have already watched this twice.  For me, watching something *once* is rare.

If you like coffee, if you are interested in learning interesting things about coffee, then this is the 1 hour video to watch.  The cool thing is that it has a detailed breakdown of the topics covered so you can skip through to what you like.

My favourite was the part about kids drinking coffee.  Really.  Who says kids can’t drink coffee? We just think this.   These guys say ‘go for it’ and in Brazil it seems to be encouraged to get higher test scores.

Cool!
