see, told you ur head was sparse.
how could a globe have it's entire surface facing outward into space at any given time? it is a globe, this is a 3d reality. the sun shines on half
(the inward facing side). and the other half is darkness, at any given time. the earth rotates it's surface allowing the outward side which is in that
darkness to rotate into darkness that which was in the light before and vice versa. please, use your imagination.. being technical is lame.. we all
know that a sphere has no 'side'. so just use the word in it's context. i have no time for such trivial arguements.
Oh dear lord, I havent posted here in a few months but this one... wow.
Being technical means you dont make glaringly bad mistakes or transfer those mistakes to others through your bad use of language. At any one time the
entire surface of the planet/globe/sphere we reside on is looking out into space (ie no matter where you stand and look up perpendicular from the
earths surface you are looking directly into space, even if earth was a cube you'd still be looking up into space no matter which side you where on,
no matter where the sun was at that time of day), its just that the side currently facing the sun at any point in the 24hr rotation of the planet is
incapable of seeing space due to the overwhelming brightness of the sun (doesnt mean you arent looking at space if you cant see it), oh and by the way
there is quite a large buffer zone between the night side and daylight side of the planet, big enough that sunset and twilight last a good 1-2 hours
in most places, it isnt some thin abrupt line you can just step over... not to mention your height in relation to the surface of the earth will
drastically alter your exposure to light compared to your location on the globe based on what time of the day it is.
A sphere or a circle in fact has got sides by the way its just that they appear as points rather than what we'd normally consider a 'side', the thing
is no matter how small a point is, it has some form of width and therefore can be considered a side or a face.... there's a technical term for it i
learned back in school but i cant remember it, so i wont make up some silly personal term for it. Ok looked it up and they call them chords (like 3d
modeling a sphere 4 chords, or edges create a face and no matter how small a face is its still a face and hence a side. That being said we use the
term side to mean the area surface of the sphere (ie one half of it or close to half) being effected by what we are talking about, in reality we
should use the term hemisphere really, but side works perfectly fine if you understand what that means.
You im afraid are the one with the sparsely filled head if you cant understand the simple concepts InhaleExhale is putting forward.
Meanwhile somewhere on the sunny 'side' of Earth.
Alien 1: Hey dude lets go home. *grabs the controls*
Alien 2: whoah wait man cant leave yet!
Alien 1: Why?
Alien 2: its not dark enough yet, we cant see the stars.
Alien 1: So?
Alien 2: Dude your crayzie we'd be flying into who knows what that is up there, it sure as xenu aint space!
Alien 1: ...
Alien 2: Quick give me the controls ill go find us the low horizon point so where sure to be able to fly out into space.
Alien 1: *pulls out his gun and sticks it to his own head and pulls the trigger*
sorry but really.

yes i believe they play at low horizon points in the sky and adhere more to the dark side of earth. the side facing space at any given time. by
dancing around this horizon point and time they can reduce the ability to be spotted. but the positioning isnt foolproof as the contours of the
earth can place certain areas high enough to make them visible in the early morning or late evening.
whether there are aliens/extra-dimensional beings infiltrating earth's atmosphere i would say is no longer something to question. it is fact! we're
just waiting for certain ppl to come clean and give it the international media coverage it deserves.
Bold part, What?... how does the elevation (not contours) of areas on the earth force a craft or being who can fly in any direction or stay at any
height with out issue, to fly at a height where they occasionally are seen? are they restricted to flying exactly X distance over the surface of the
earth at all times and so have to avoid high spots so they dont pop up over the horizon for someone in the distance to see... oh lets ignore the fact
as pointed out before one mans horizon is another mans directly overhead. Talk about a stellar hiding plan by these pilots or beings... in my backyard
on a clear day i can see the snow capped peaks of a mountain.. this mountain is about 160ish kilometers away, and roughly 2700m high, yet I can see at
least a third of it over the curvature of the earth itself... your UFO's hugging the low horizon point would have to be almost at ground level to
avoid being seen at a fraction of that distance..
And if you are a self illuminating object... you sure as hell wouldn't hide on the dark side of a planet!. Its alot easier to spot a moving point of
light among stationary ones on a black background, and its even MORE noticeable during sunset and twilight since you have few stars coming out and the
light level is sufficiently low to make even a minor point of light eyesore level noticeable.
If I was a UFO pilot or being in a shiny and glowing craft and or body... id stay in the light side of the planet, with all those big old white bright
clouds and over bearing glare from the sun, not to mention the bright light blue background my own light would be drowned out by (point in case how
often do you see a shooting star during the day or the international space station? they are up there but good luck seeing em without being really
really lucky)... but that would be logical on the part of the aliens and they are anything but arent they.
