I knew that.

If you think your clock puzzle hurts your brain, try to make "flat earth" work such that things like how the moon and sun look are correct depending on your location.
Some might say the problem is unsolvable...


I seem to remember a flat earth thread on here some years ago, with one professed true believer. Did this come up?

I'm not sure if I'm the one referred to, but I do have a login at one of the FE forums. All good fun - why not give them a browse?! Or even sign up!

Still trying to figure out how it is, I can see the Southern Cross from South America, but not from England. Difficult for a FE'er to explain.. :lol: :roll:
