About this "Round Earth" hypothesis......
« on: March 22, 2017, 2340 UTC »
If a man with a globe shaped head says it's not true, what do these egg-head scientists know? There goes the Hollow Earth Expedition. Who wants to end up on the blank flipside?

I wish we had someone on this board with a knowledge of geography and geology to explain this millennia old blunder? Never trust a Greek geek with a penchant for sitting in holes to observe the sun.

Ooooo! Foghorn Leghorn's Greatest hits! Foghorn was probably the greatest mind of the post-war. He only concentrated his efforts on the concrete problems he could handle, foxes, chickenhawks, and dimwitted hound dogs.

Not until the emergence of Tennessee Tuxedo nearly two decades later, did we see another bird-brain to equal his.

Tennessee's species and history gives me pause for thought. If the Earth is truly flat, why aren't penguins distributed evenly around the rim in all the cold areas instead of just the southern regions? Two, Chumly was a rare South Pole walrus that zookeeper Stanley Livingstone went to Antarctica in search of. Livingstone met Tennessee, who agreed to convince Chumly to accompany him to the Zoo if Tennessee could tag along.

If the Earth were flat, wouldn't South Pole walruses just be regular walruses out for swim around the rim?

If only a great CalTech trained brain was around to enlighten us.

Uh-huh. And what about the Penguin Paradox that literally surrounds this mystery?

All caps. It looks like he's on another penguin venom bender. He mixes it with Red Bull to give him wings when his inner penguin comes out.
