A new year and another weekend and another of IST Saturday thoughts…..
Let us start with loonies in the Flat Earth movement…..it seems that took out a sailboat to prove Earth’s flatness…….
If the Earth was flat it would be incredibly easy to prove. For instance, you could go to any seashore and look at a boat sailing far out in the distance and not dipping over the horizon, or ask any of the astronauts onboard the International Space Station to just take a quick photo of the flat circle below as a favor.
So far, not a single flat-Earther has been able to find any proof, which should tell you something about whether the theory has merit, even if you discount all the evidence that Earth is indeed round as a global conspiracy that only YouTuber “GlobeEarthCuck1848174” has seen through.
Despite Italy’s lockdown, a couple from Venice recently set out to prove Earth’s flatness once and for all by sailing to the edge of the world, which they believed to be somewhere near Sicily. It’s amazing how people who live locally never visit famous tourist attractions, like the leaning tower of Piza or the edge of the Earth where the sea meets the infinite void.
Then there are those people that believe that aliens (ET not immigrants) have been visiting our planet…as recently as 2017 for one MIT professor…..
theoretical physicist Avi Loeb outlines his belief that aliens came to Earth in 2017. The Harvard University professor and chairman of the school’s astronomy department reveals his theory about an unidentified object that entered our solar system three years ago.
Dubbed “Oumuamua,” Hawaiian for “scout,” the interstellar object was first spotted by the Pan-STARRS telescope at Hawaii’s Haleakala Observatory in 2017, passing through the ecliptic plane September 6 from the direction of Vega, a star in the Lyra constellation 25 light-years away from Earth. Three days later, Oumuamua began accelerating for the sun before coming towards our planet “moving swiftly toward the constellation Pegasus and the blackness beyond,” according to Loeb.
Let’s move past the space and conspiracies…..
Why not post on “Breastaurants”?
Move over, Hooters. There’s a new “breastaurant” franchise invading Texas with full force, and you guessed it; it’s military-themed.
“Bombshells” — an eatery thus named for the seemingly scantily-clad modern-day pin-ups who will serve all-American fare — is set to open three new franchise locations, including one in San Antonio, at an undisclosed date.
“We believe Bombshells is a significant entry into the market for modern sports bar restaurants,” said Nick Mehdi, manager of the San Antonio franchise, in a press statement. “It appeals to singles, couples, and families, including millennials.”
Ah, yes. Breastaurants for the whole family!
Have a good day…..be well…..be safe…..
