Did he reach altitude to see that he was wrong all along before perishing?

To be fair, has anyone actually presented any proof the guy is wrong? I mean, where is there even the slightest actual evidence that the earth is round?


Perhaps one of the most famous photos ever taken........






or the fact that the orbital mechanics necessary to send a craft to the location the photo was taken actually worked.



That's too high tech.

A ship appears in the horizon by the it higher part and disappears by it is lower part. Greeks, Romans already know that Earth was round. Of course fata morgana might also appeared...

There may not be a law against stupidity, but there are sure warnings. Such as...Do NOT use Hair Dryer (Toaster,Electric Razor, etc) in the shower.

In a TV News commentary on the subject of risks of using technology, they showed a clip of some good-ol-boys pouring gasoline into a toaster that was plugged in and operating (at least they knew to do it outside!). The gasoline naturally ignited and set the toaster on fire and almost set the gas can on fire too. The boys unplugged the toaster and watched it burn, as though a toaster burning after gasoline was poured in it was an unexpected outcome.

the risk commentary was about the risk of the toaster starting on fire and whether or not such technology should be in our homes. I think the toaster would have been welcome in my home, but the boys ... not so much!

I think this was a highly educational piece. I think we need to be aware of what is in our homes and what could be the impact should one or more of a variety of scenarios come to pass.

I have simply lost count of the number of times I've woken in the morning, headed to the kitchen only to find gasoline has been poured into my toaster. Thanks to this clip, at least now I know what may happen as a result.

Stay safe.

I mitigate this risk by placing my toaster in the icebox before I use it.

Well I've always said we should take away all warning signs, and let nature take its course.
