    Why didnt I think of that?!!!

    It would seem impossible that in the age of Quantum Theory and particle accelators, a certain group of people believe that the earth is flat and the whole "spherical earth" nonsense. Go to the following site and be amused

    Part two - An Accelerating World on the Why a Flat Earth? page sounds like quite an exhilirating ride!

    It's a pity the Fighting the "Evidence" section isn't up.

    Welcome, RadiationSpecialist!

    The site is a parody - and it is an amusing one:

    "After spending over sixteen million dollars and using over 48 thousand yards of industrial strength strapping tape, we of the Flat Earth Society were able to construct an enormously powerful neurotransmitter that can implant suggestions directly into the brains of the nearby non-Flat Earthers. Having set it up just outside of the Russian Antarctic exploration post (Vostok), we are awaiting word that all three scientists and 174 penguins have been shown the light."

    Cannot trust site if print such lies!!!

    The Flat Earth Society is not in any way responsible for the failure of the French to repel the Germans at the Maginot Line during WWII.

    If you strip off "FlatHome.htm
    from the original link, you get the directory list
    http://www.alaska.net/~clund/e_djublonskopf/
    which shows these pages were last updated in 1998

    strip off a little more of the address to
    http://www.alaska.net/~clund/
    and you get the home page - note I could find no link back to the flat earth pages from his main site.

    I've emailed him to see if he has any other gems hidden there.

    look at the address "e_djublonskopf".
    With first look I thought its an Scandinavian (Finnish Or Swedish) word!
    But then I thought even they could not possibly pronounce such a word, Its a very good tongue twister though! So I think that the guy in the page simply made a crazy subfolder to that and named it simply by typing rubbish or tried to type with his nose?
