Nope, 500 years to the day. Before that people fell off the Earth a lot!

Fact.

If it is slightly going to be in any kind of pathway of an aircraft you better seek permission. Your link is 404'd when it comes to those specs.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, at least without proper knowledge of what you are doing and proper permits. You literally could take down a 747 by accident otherwise.

Where did they fall to? Did they see any turtles along the way?

Well because I have a working brain then i can say its a 100% sphere or should I say spheroid.

Indeed, turtles, all the way down!

Edit: Although I heard that at some point there is a chicken...and an egg as well somewhere, but mostly turtles.

Do they pass by the chicken, or the egg first?

Different for everyone, as it should be, relativity and all that.

Not to mention if you were falling head first one could conclude you were falling "up", therefore everything would be reverse from how you see it. Alternatively, if someone were to fall feet first, they may have a better chance to reach enlightenment before approaching the last turtle.

Well #. Now I don't know either. *sigh* There goes enlightenment.

I suppose, but remember, as each turtle is more massive than the last, when you get to relativistic speeds and almost infinite mass you get spaghettified...the menu has no limits, the human body does, not sure how that helps enlightenment though.

Thousands of years of science and philosophy show that the Earth is not flat.

Who are you going to believe? A bunch of conspiracy theorists on the internet, or some of humanity's greatest thinkers? I know who i'd pick...

I'd pick the turtle.
Every time.

When I was studying wireless networks we were taught a formula for setting up a long range wifi network over a distance of 6km or greater so that you take the earth's curvature into account.

I've also climbed a lot of mountains and taken some inter-continental flights. Jetlag is real.

These threads are unbelievable.

I remember thinking before "how do I explain this to even the most brain dead person, that the earth is not flat", you know, without going into specifics.

1 - The sun appears over the horizon and disappears under the horizon. If the earth was flat, the sun would just move closer, and move farther away from you, i.e. you would be able to watch it literally all day if you had a telescope powerful enough.
2 - The shadow of the earth on the moon during a lunar eclipse.
3 - The higher up you go, the farther you see.
4 - My compass works.
5 - Tides.
6 - Photos.

Do you fancy having a look at my blinking wi fi? It can't even seem to manage six meters!
Is that because I'm on a flat bit or a curvy bit?
Or do I need a new chicken?

The world is neither flat nor spheroid but rather balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle, Great A'Tuin.

Oh, wait...
