Hi, I have a really snazzy digital compass from Finland. I actually bought the watch because I thought it would be fun to have a dependable compass as we approach the whole 2012 thing. I hardly ever use it and really just enjoy pulling it out occasionally and calibrating the compass. When I saw this post last night. I ran to get it so I could check. I was so excited that it took me 3-4 minutes to realize that the thing is working fine. I even re-calibrated. There is no noticeable discrepancy.
The article that you are referencing is from 2003. I know that all interested parties here have seen it a long time ago. There was no reason for you to entitle this thread 'Compasses Going Crazy'
MadDog, Aren't you the guy who started the post on 'What has happened to ATS" What is your point here with this thread? Pull us all in with a sensationalistic title and then when the compasses are not going crazy split hairs over an article from NASA and the USGS from 8 years ago? Where is the conspiracy here?
OK, we get it. North is migrating some miniscule amount every year. How is this the same as compasses going crazy? Maybe I should just avoid these posts for a while when I see your avatar until you mellow out.
Holding expensive Finnish compass right now and North is still North. Just sayin'edit on 20-3-2011 by Frater210 because: Benefit of the doubt
Yes, but all the emphasis was put on hoax. Seriously, what is this lame amateur debunking? Go check some good debunkers, your technique really is not on top of the game.
Oh can you tell me why debunkers are almost always arrogant and not sympathic? Can't they be nice people too? Or is it part of the discrediting theory?
