Hi,
I don't get out much and a bit timid, so I fear close to the edge. :(
US is on one side Russia on the other and we are in the middle :)

Flat, and you can fall off the edge. Here's proof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_JvYS1mn4w

Flat, obvs. There are societies that say so, ergo it’s flat.

In my alter ego as a signed-up contributor to the Flat Earth Society Forum, I've made several posts in support of Flat Earth belief. For this I've been showered with praise by the regulars (they don't get many like me....).

Should I disabuse them? :twisted:

Perhaps I am typical of "certain members on this Forum"....?
