Flat Earth[edit]

Dear Professor Diamond, I believe I have found some evidence for the flatness of the Earth. First of all, there is the flat-Earth approximation one learns in elementary physics, which consists of the familiar binomial expansion to leading order. Second, the uniformity of the strength of gravity on the surface of the Earth, hence W = mg. By Gauss's law for gravity, then, we conclude that not only is Earth flat, it is infinite. Third, geodesic surveys suggest that the shortest path between any two points on Earth is a straight line. Now, cylinders and cones are isometric to planes, but the Earth is neither conical nor cylindrical by the second piece of evidence. Sincerely, Nerd (talk) 22:48, 12 November 2017 (UTC).

@Nerd I see you have mastered the art of typing while drunk. Congratulations!-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 03:44, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
Did you just assume which fermented product I consumed? Check your privileges! I swear to God I solved the Euler-Lagrange equations for the appropriate configuration then confirmed with the geodesic equations. Light travels in a straight line. Therefore, space must be flat and so is Earth. Nerd (talk) 03:36, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
@Nerd Most people are sane. But you're special.-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 03:38, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
@DiamondDisc1 (Starry eyes) Did you say I'm "special"? You are so kind. Existence and uniqueness are notoriously hard to prove rigorously in general. Your professor for differential equations can tell you more. I can say with confidence, however, that I exist, am unique, and can be found in finitely many steps. Speaking of optical trajectories, please feast your eyes. Nerd (talk) 01:50, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
If you don't know what you're talking about, just send me a private email. I promise not to tell anyone. -DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 04:26, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nerd My work has indicated the IQ of all Flat-Earthers or people who think they are special can be summed up very simply. Here are my results: (d/dx (9))*the integral of 82x^7 from x=2 to x=2+ (e^iπ) -DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 04:24, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
@DiamondDisc1 Ah, a very simple equation. The derivative of a constant is zero. (Please consider using math mode like I did above. The code is identical to that of LaTeX.) But there is a problem. The IQ scale only applies to children, as the psychologist Alfred Binet, who invented it kept insisting. Binet was commissioned by the French government to devise a method that could identify children with special needs. Nerd (talk) 14:18, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
May I ask which branch of science you specialize in? Nerd (talk) 14:18, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nerd One of them.-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 03:55, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
(Grins) (Edited) Of course you do. :-) Nerd (talk) 00:59, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nerd I've actually found evidence for a Flat Earth! Here it is: Click me-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 03:14, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
@DiamondDisc1 I'm proud to be such a positive influence. Nerd (talk) 01:50, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nerd Here's more proof: Inrefutable evidence -DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 06:10, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
Now that's what I consider to be indisputable evidence, not the kind used to support the ridiculous territorial claims made by Communist China. Nerd (talk) 15:14, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
I can't believe PBS showed a footage of a toy car of some know-it-all floating in space after a successful rocket launch. The Earth does not look flat from outer space. Fake news! How does this guy succeed when a true believer in a flat Earth fails? They also admitted it looked like animation with (reusable) rockets landing (!?) in synchronicity. Ya think?

@Nerd Elon's musk is filled with brainwashing chemicals.-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 04:06, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Indeed, the stupid bird launch was a hoax! Nerd (talk) 16:09, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Nerd The flat Earth community has been growing around the globe!-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 06:57, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

You were removing pri?[edit]

Only just noticed while scanning the logs for something else. Thanks for the help :) —Kazitor, pending 11:27, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

@KazitorYep! 😉 You’re welcome! Th hug.gif-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 19:29, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Quick question[edit]

Was this supposed to be a strikethrough (e.g. wifely)? CowHouse (talk) 14:55, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@CowHouse No, it was explaining the meaning of uxorial.-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 18:51, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. It didn't really make sense as a strikethrough and I realised that's what you were doing shortly after I asked. If there's another word that more people will understand, would it not be a good idea to just change it rather than using the synonym as a reference? CowHouse (talk) 06:23, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
