‘So What’s Real?’ (2015)

This post is notable for the appearance of a reader who passionately defends the proposition that the world is flat, not round.

So What’s Real?

Well, heck, why not? Never before in human history has so much money and labor been spent on “education,” with so little result.

Meanwhile, I don’t get paid enough to get drawn into a debate with a flat-earther.

  1. Actually, when I was stationed in Cheyenne, I used to say about the high plains to the east that you could look straight ahead at the sky, and it seemed that you really could drive a few miles and fall off the edge. The key word, of course, is “seemed.” When I did drive east later on, I wound up in Chicago — which some might say was indeed over the edge, but that’s another story. Anyway, I always thought the beautifully flat world of the high plains was a magnificent work of art (although at the time when I was stationed in Cheyenne I didn’t yet realize it was the work of an Artist), even more impressive than the upward surge of the Rockies to the west. Trees and other green stuff just looked messy to me. Maybe because I grew up amid the concrete of the Bronx. I still prefer clean lines — high plains, desert, concrete and steel….

    I seem to have changed the subject, though. Sorry. 😉

    1. Well, Phoebe, if you hadn’t made this comment, I wouldn’t have any comments at all today.

      I’ve never been west of Indianapolis, so I’ve missed a lot.
