Of course it is.....:rofl:...wherever your eyeballs are, the horizon will appear the same, the only difference is that at 35000ft it is actually further away.

 

You are able to see a boat out at sea further away from the air, than the ground.......hence lighthouses and watchtowers are up high......:yep:

You can't see the curve of the earth at less than 85k feet approximately

A small percentage you'd need to be in something that flies above 60k feet can't see an exact figure but concord doesn't cut it at 50k

so not many people apart from some pilots  in the air force/NASA have actually physically seen the curve?

 

and of course Felix Baumgartner.....

Your eyeballs would also be 6 miles high.........they haven't dropped either.......not even 1mm......:rofl:

Try thinking this way.......You are standing on the beach looking at the horizon and it appears at a certain point in your eyeline......

If there is a static object in the sea, the base of which appears to rest on the horizon, as you rise higher, the horizon will stay at the same point

but the object will move below the horizon. the higher you rise the more of the object will become below the level of the horizon

This is because the object is finite whereas the horizon appears neverending until you reach a height where you can see the earth's curvature as already mentioned.

I hope this makes sense bud.......:yep:

If you lay down, the horizon doesn't look like such a big deal :yinyang: .  It's only when your eyes are in the horizontal plane that there's any depth to it.

just been having a think ..a flat earth type think ..

the illuminati cards that do the conspiracy rounds say that flat earthers are on to something ..yes

flat_earthers.jpg

 

well after perusing a video on flat earth a guy said something about maps ..and recently a japanese team mapped the world and i think ..think ..that the actual psyop that conspiracy theorists talk about isnt whether its round or flat but just its much bigger than we think and each country is wrong on a map .

this is the guy that spurred that thought on ..its yer standard flat earth affair ..but he mentions a couple of things in a passing manner that should probably be investigated more ..esp maps and gps .
