Complimentary hug[edit]

Thanks for endorsing me! Th hug.gif No this doesn't make you special.-DiamondDisc1|1csiDdnomaiD (talk) 22:23, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

@DiamondDisc1 (Grins) The pleasure is mine. Nerd (talk) 16:23, 28 December 2017 (UTC)


The video you linked to is not of snow falling in the Sahara desert. Comrade GC (talk) 15:47, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Oops! Silly me! Fixed it. Thank you for letting me know. Nerd (talk) 18:02, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Perhaps the server is a little slow here. But it seems to me an anonymous editor fixed it first. Anyway, the problem is resolved. Nerd (talk) 18:06, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you @FuzzyCatPotato and @CheeseburgerFace! But I will wait till that slight technical problem is resolved before celebrating if I win. :-) Nerd (talk) 23:02, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Proof of a Flat Earth[edit]

This excellent video proves it!|1csiDdnomaiD (talk) 06:08, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

@DiamondDisc1 Science does not prove that anything is true. It only rules things out. The difference between science and pseudoscience is that pseudoscience proves whereas science disproves.
This thought just came to me. It is possible to compute the gravitational field of an infinite plane (via a direct application of Newton's law of universal gravitation or by Gauss's law of gravity). The answer will be in terms of the mass density of the plane. (Spoiler alert: It's constant everywhere. You get the exactly same result for an infinite electrically charge plate.) One can then compare this to the mean density of Earth obtained by other methods. Perhaps you are aware of the Cavendish experiment, which not only yields a value for Newton's gravitational constant G but also the mean density of Earth.

@DiamondDisc1 A cat farting out rainbow? How about an ignoramus visiting a national laboratory? Watch his face during the demonstration of eddy currents. Nerd (talk) 03:02, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Intelligence? That's the greatest enemy flat-Earthers have!-DiamondDisc1|1csiDdnomaiD (talk) 19:30, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
@DiamondDisc1 I'm a very stable genius. You seem to be of the opinion that I am typing while intoxicated. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no problem. Believe me! I assure you. Nerd (talk) 21:29, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
You seem like a legitimate stable genius, totally nothing unstable or insane about you!-DiamondDisc1|1csiDdnomaiD (talk) 06:37, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

You are hereby invited...[edit]

To join my new political party!! ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:24, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@GrammarCommie Thank you for your invitation, mate! Nerd (talk) 01:46, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
