So a former CIA agent and commercial pilot says its impossible yet scientists and architects say it is possible, I know which I'll believe.

ah a flat earth idiot, rapper BoB did some tweets the other day about it which renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson replied to, now BoBs done a song about it. Out of all the conspiracies surely the flat earthers would have to be the most insane.

Sid there are many others who believe it as well, I did post the worst link for it but it was just the point where I'd had enough.

Other conspiracies I can stretch my mind to at least understand, the flat earth one is the only one which I just can't comprehend in any way, shape or form

Ok, so I've just done some back of the envelope calculations on the "ice wall" that surround the earth. It's approximately 20,000km from the north pole to the south, so...

pi x radius squared =

3.14 x 20,000 x 20,000 = 1,256,000,000km long

Yep, you read that right, the ice wall that surround the earth is 1.256 BILLION kilometres long

Seems plausible

So when the ice wall melts ocean levels should drop as the water flows off the sides of the earth, will create a lot of real estate for savvy investors.

You obviously haven't read the literature, MB. Nobody knows what's beyond the Ice Wall, except perhaps NASA, who according to some theories have men stationed on the wall to guard it.

That's right, they've got men stationed on the 1.2 BILLION kilometre ice wall that surrounds the earth.

I liked the bit about how night and day work. Wouldn't I still be able to see the sun in that theory, or do the also argue the sun is not a sphere (I guess they do).
