That's one of the things I can't let go of here. A spherical earth, I get just fine; fly up past the atmosphere while going sideways ridiculously fast, until your ballistic arc becomes a circle around the earth. To borrow from the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you throw yourself at the ground and miss.

But how the fuck is it supposed to work on a flat earth? I've seen some people claim satellites don't exist, but I've seen them glimmering in the sky. I've seen at least one chart trying to explain the path of the ISS, but nothing for polar (North-South) orbits. And neither of those even touch on the problem of gravity; round-earth satellites stay up is because they're essential falling sideways too quickly to hit the earth, but they'd eventually hit the ground on a flat earth.

You may recall the hotline Trump had set up to report undocumented immigrants. Surprising absolutely nobody, it's being used to settle petty grudges and threaten victims.

https://splinternews.com/this-is-what-i ... 1819077393

Caller stated the illegal alien (step-son) is a drug addict, unemployed, homeless and living in his car that he parks at [address redacted by Splinter]. Caller stated the subject is a danger to society and wants to know why he was not taken into ICE custody. Caller stated the subject recently missing his court hearing [number and date redacted by Splinter] and is now in probation violation. Caller provided A number, name [redacted by Splinter], DOB, and COB. Caller stated he does not want his wife to know and prefers not to be reached at his cell number [redacted by Splinter] that he shares with her.

Caller requested to report an undocumented alien who is accusing him of domestic violence in order to obtain legal status. Caller claims subject is his legal wife.

Caller stated that he wanted to report (2) two people who are using EBT cards to purchase wine and steak in Sacramento (CA). Caller did not have any information on the subjects. Caller wanted to know if he can make a citizens arrest if he sees this happening again.


That last one xD

Allegedly, Kim Jong Um spends about 65% of his time playing online games.... and has a particular fondness for Left4Friend and World of Tanks

I have never been so happy that my account is on the Asia server.

I mean, Express.uk is not exactly the most reliable of sources, but if there's even a 0.01% chance that I could actually grief Kim Jong Um IRL...

Dude (NOT Chuck Tingle!) wrote a Trump erotic parody novella, on a dare, while drunk off his ass. It is now a bestseller.

He was so drunk that he didn't think of "Trumptation"?
