    Flat Earth and Tartaria

    Greetings Crookshanks and welcome. No history student am I, but consider a few common sense trials. How tall is a giraffe 14 feet? A sauropod, maybe 25 feet? The tallest of trees, 375 ft? All of them have adaptations designed to combat gravity. Raising water to the crown or pumping blood to the brain are not easy when you are tall. Animals and trees have their own special adaptations to accomplish this. Consider the problem with pumping blood to a brain 2.5 miles high. Knowing the density of water, you can calculate that there would be a difference of over 5000 psi between the toes and the brain. Wherever you locate the heart in that body, it has to overcome several thousand pounds of hydraulic pressure just to circulate blood. Even with today's technology, to achieve any volume at that pressure would take a heckova pump and very high pressure lines. Consider the energy that would take. You might have come across the physics definition of work in high school, work=force *distance. Energy is the ability to do work. Just think about the energy required to pump all of that blood that far. Without the math, lets just say a crapton of calories. A being that size needs to produce a lot of energy. Digesting animal or vegetable substance would take a lot of volume. Photosynthesis would take a lot of surface area. You could do all of that math if you wanted. Nuclear power? Consider nerve impulses. The fastest travel at around 350 feet per second. Getting a message through a 2.5 mile body would take what,30 seconds or there abouts? Not what one would consider quick reflexes. Enough to tell you that no animal or plant based on earth life and tissue limitations could reach 2.5 miles in height. As for underground doors and windows on buildings, google Seattle underground city tours. Cities built on coastal sediments sink. Streets get raised, lower levels become basements. The human habit everywhere through a lot of history was to chunk everything out the window into the street. Street level rises. As buildings age and crumble, they get flattened enough to build a new one on top.

    If Trump was smart he'd offer Tulsi a place in his cabinet.

    Who will the Democratic nominee be?

    Looks like Joe Walsh just threw his name in the hat on the Republican side: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/exclusive-joe-walsh-announces-gop-primary-challenge-against-trump/ar-AAGja99?li=BBnb7Kz

    Who will the Democratic nominee be?

    I think you will see Bill Weld give Trump a run just because "somebody has to do it". He's likeable enough to Dems to get elected governor in dem stronghold, Massachusetts. And if he *did* upset Trump....? I wouldn't bet the farm on the Dem candidate winning, this guy is good.

    One of the reasons creatures were larger in early-prehistoric times was due to the different levels in the atmosphere. This doesn't support the "giants built Paris" hypothesis or whatever it is

  17. The reason why people mistook Berestain Bears is because one of the letters the way it was written used to be curved. Thus mistaking the letter. I remember cause I always read those books. Even owned them.

    Looking and seeing, seeing, then closing your eyes to not see what has been seen. Tighter and tighter, until what you've seen pries your eyes open.

    Oh sparky, you asked what people thought of your stated theory. You were told what people thought of it, and now you scamper away. You go on with your bad self, bless your heart.

    Id completely agree with the plausibility of history having played out differently than the version we are all supposed to believe as unequivocal truth. History is written by the victor, therefor it is subjective, thus not objective truth per definition. The version described in the OP however, no.
