Not a taradiddle
OMG I made the mistake of looking at flat earth crap, and found the explanation for the tides.  OMG it's really hard to believe these people are for real. That it's not just a huge joke.

Seriously.

If you look on a flat earth map, the path of the sun through the year (tropic of cancer to the tropic of Capricorn) is exactly where all the most and extreme tides are found on earth.

wtf?  How can people be so idiotic in this day and age?  I weep for their children.

But it gets worse.

Bearing this fact in mind, that there exists a continual pressure of the atmosphere upon the Earth, and associating it with the fact that the Earth is a vast plane 'stretched out upon the waters,' and it will be seen that it must of necessity slightly fluctuate, or slowly rise and fall in the water. As by the action of the atmosphere the Earth is slowly depressed, the water moves towards the receding shore and produces the flood tide; and when by the reaction of the resisting oceanic medium the Earth gradually ascends the waters recede, and the ebb tide is produced. This is the general cause of tides.

There are actually different "reasons" given by the different flat earth people to explain the tides.

Wait till you get to their explanation on why the round of Antartica takes far less time than it should, if it was the Outer Rim of the world.

I can't say I remember the details, but terms like "time-space continuum" show up a lot.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Temperatures are thought to approach absolute zero the further one explores outwards. Exploration in this type of pitch black freezing environment is impossible for any man or machine. We live on a vast plane with an unknown diameter and an unknown depth. Dr. Samuel Birley Rowbotham held that knowing the true dimensions of the earth is something which will forever be unknowable by man.

All I know is that, if I ever play an RPG on a Steampunk setting, "Dr. Samuel Birley Rowbotham" is going to be my character's name.

I would say "people used to believe the most idiotic shit", except it seems people still believe it.

How fucking strange

"Parallax" would be my evil character.

If your nemesis is "Parallax", then are you a steampunk Green Lantern? Because that would be awesome.
Why do I bother?
