when the world was flat

“The original novel [Dumb Witness] was dedicated to her [Agatha Christie’s] own wire-haired terrier - ‘To dear Peter,’ it read, 'most faithful of friends and dearest of companions. A dog in a thousand.’
I felt exactly the same way about the terrier in our film. He captivated me from the moment I set eyes on him. The little dog, whose real name was actually Snubby, became my dear friend. [..] My now ever-expanding fan club wrote to tell me how much they enjoyed it [the episode], so they also told me, the sales of wire-haired terriers shot up exponentially after it was shown for the first time in March 1996.”
- David Suchet, Poirot and Me

Wasn’t there a time when the brightest minds in the world believed that the world was flat? And, up until like what, 50 years ago, you all thought the atom was the smallest thing, until you split it open, and this like, whole mess of crap came out. Now, are you telling me that you are so unbelievably arrogant that you can’t admit that there’s a teeny tiny possibility that you could be wrong about this?

Salar de Uyuni is a magical place. When covered by water, the world’s largest salt flat becomes a mirror, and anyone walking across it appears to be walking on clouds.

fxckbaybay  asked:

what's a flat-earther? is it when you think the world is flat but clearly it's round or?😂😂

AHAH YES😩 on talking smack once Daniel Bryan revealed that AJ thought the earth was flat😂😂😭😭😭

WHAT IF?

I’ve never been one to theorize before but I keep thinking, ya know. Stans memories started to come back. A hell of a lot of them already but I’m sure more over time. Bill was in his mind when it was erased (the whole point of it being erased in the first place). When Stan punched Bill he kind of dispersed if you will. If Stan can get his memories back what if after a while he starts getting Bill memories back too. 

Now hear me out. What if when Bill got dispersed the little pieces the punch left him in settled into the corners of Stan’s mind in stead of them all disappearing. Not really gone but not really Bill. Or even they coming back along and settle with Stan’s memories. 

Imagen Stan relaxing on the Stan-O-War II when suddenly he remembers a flat world and chaos. He blinks. The world around him is as it should be. That felt like how it does when he get’s a memory back it didn’t feel right.  


I might add more to this later after I do more thinking…

Since my last post I have been inundated with pictures of dopplegangers. I cannot legally post half of them due to privacy, but I have posted a collage of celebrities above who look alike — too alike.

·       Isla Fisher and Amy Adams

·       Bono and Robin Williams

·       Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

·       Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale

·       James Blunt and John Heder

·       Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley

I am sure there are a million more, but I am not sure what they have to do with this blog. I just know that the doppleganger Clara reported was talking about the Evacuation.

"They could only see to the horizon"
  • Cory: Ferdinand Magellan! What'd he do?
  • Maya: First bull with a last name!
  • Lucas: *derps at Maya*
  • Farkle: First man to circumnavigate the globe.
  • Maya: Who ya gonna believe?
  • Lucas: *derps at Maya*
  • Cory: Everyone thought the world was flat. Why?
  • Lucas: They could only see to the horizon.
  • Riley: They were too scared to go out. They...thought they'd fall off the world. I don't blame 'em.
  • Farkle: *stares at Riley*
  • Cory: Well, what about you guys? What's your horizon line? Write down the one thing in life you consider impossible. Where do you fall off the earth?
  • Kids: *write*
  • Cory: Well it looks like everyone found something pretty easily. That's too bad. Because when you think you can't do something, your world is as flat as a piece of paper.
  • Cory: So crumple 'em up!
  • Kids: *crumple*
  • Cory: Now look at 'em! You hold your world in your hands. Nothing's impossible if you take a shot.
  • Cory: So take a shot.

Education is ‘the key.’

“I think it’s important for students to take responsibility for their education. We accept too much of what we’re taught without question.”  

— ”You start off by educating yourself and by asking questions. That’s when things start happening, when you ask the tough questions. When Columbus thought to ask, “What if the world isn’t flat?” the whole world changed. Nowadays we still need change.”

“I think students deserve to have access to information that can help them become conscious and active world citizens.”
