• How much of the world could be powered by a hydro-electric dam on the amazon river? It is larger than the next 6 largest rivers combined.?

    Best answer: Water flow turbine generators in the river would do better than any dam. There are good designs for those now. But the water flow and depth varies with seasons--rainy and dry ones. Also, who would use the power? How to send it long distances? You got any clues from Nikola Tesla's diagrams in his missing... show more

  • Is there really more land past the Antarctica ring on the flat earth?

    Best answer: Oh, most definitely. We know that there must be, but unfortunately, we can't get there as of right now. The main obstacle is that the powers-that-be will do anything to protect their secret.

    Best answer: Oh, most definitely. We know that there must be, but unfortunately, we can't get there as of right now. The main obstacle is that the powers-that-be will do anything to protect their secret. That means that despite the fact that no country can officially claim land in Antarctica, territorial claims are recognised to a certain extent. And the governments of those countries who have a stake in Antarctica do not allow people to enter Antarctica or to travel freely despite the fact that no one can legally claim dominion over it. That means that Antarctica does not have a government and no one should be permitted to police it as if it were the territory of any independent sovereign nation or as a territory administered by an international committee. Why don't they allow people to enter and travel freely? Because anyone who does will discover the truth that those early explorers did - that Antarctica is not a continental landmass. And if that secret were to get out, it would disrupt everything.

    We know from examining the logs of early Antarctic expeditions that from the very beginning, there have been a lot of discrepancies when it came down to hard numbers. Early navigators remarked that they continued sailing for weeks and months without ever seeing a single break in the wall of ice that Antarctica throws up from every possible approach. They also noted that their calculations were continually off - using both charts and sextants as well as dead reckoning, they would occasionally find themselves off course by up to and over 30 nautical miles. And we are talking about brilliant men who sailed the most treacherous waters on this planet and were the first to produce accurate maps of these places. They weren't men prone to making mistakes.

    Take a lot at some of the evidence for yourself. Firstly, have you ever once known anyone who has been to Antarctica? I have. She was in a Marine Biology program and went there as part of a research team. She remained there for about six weeks. She was billeted with an American, British and Australian contingent of scientists, researchers, engineers and the like. Never once did she travel more than a few miles from base. Never once did she travel more than a few miles inland from the coast. Never once did she meet or talk to anybody who had ventured away from the base (except perhaps to visit another one along some different section of the coast), or talk to anyone who had penetrated the hinterland of the continent. Why? Where are all these people who have supposedly been to "The South Pole"? Have you ever met any? Have you ever seen a documentary that showed people traversing vast distances across the ice to reach it? No, because there is no "South Pole."

    Why is it that if I want to fly from South Africa to South America I have to fly to someplace like Addis Ababa or Cairo or Istanbul first? People take direct flights all the time from places like Beijing and Seoul and Tokyo to places like Boston and New York and Toronto. The air mileage is staggeringly higher between two points in the Northern Hemisphere, yet flights from Point A to Point B in the Southern Hemisphere always have a layover further north than the original airport. Why? What's the reason that Cape Town to Sao Paolo requires a stopover? Because on the Flat Earth, South Africa and Brazil are much, much farther apart than they appear to be on the spherical globe.

    Have you ever heard of anyone circumnavigating the Earth from north to south? According to historians, human beings have traversed the Earth from east to west and from west to east multiple times, and apparently still do this all the time. But never, not once, at any time in the entirety of the history of humanity, has any ship or airplane lifted anchor or taken off from the North Pole and arrived at the South Pole. Why? Sure, people will give you all kinds of idiotic answers... The weather is too extreme... The temperatures drop too drastically... So airplanes that fly at 35,000 feet in subzero temperatures couldn't cope with the subzero temperatures? So ships that were designed to remain sturdy and true in open sea would be unable to cope with the brutal conditions? Who makes this nonsense up?

    The fact that the Earth is flat is self-evident. We can see proof of it anywhere and everywhere. You can stand 75 miles away from the Himalayas and see the bases of the mountains from that distance. You could do the same in places like Alaska where there is little to obstruct the view. How is it possible that we can view the bases of distant mountains from the better part of a hundred miles, but when the masts of a departing vessel slink behind the waves it must be because of curvature? It's perspective, not curvature.

    Do you think that the buildings in Australia and South America stand straight up off the Earth jutting out in every direction? That there are people right now this very minute hanging upside down asleep in their beds like bats and that people are pouring glasses of orange juice and riding upside down in elevators? It's ridiculous.

    Best answer: Explain how Africa might somehow be considered to be "the richest continent on Earth." Africa's population is very rapidly approaching one billion. Despite being a very large continent in terms of area, there are vast swathes of Africa which are almost uninhabitable and many other sections that are unfit for large-scale agriculture. There are sprawling deserts, thick jungles, lofty mountains, many of these areas can only support marginal populations and the incredibly overcrowded urban areas don't have the infrastructure to accommodate the massive amount of people living there. Yes, Africa has a lot of natural resources like oil, natural gas, precious metals, gems, and quite a few others, but Africa doesn't have the means to feed itself, and even with modern farming methods, the corrupt and inept governments of Africa cannot overcome the basic issue of providing enough food and water to the people. Who cares whether or not there are diamonds or gold when you're hungry and thirsty?

    One thing I don't understand with Scots and Welsh ( some of them not all) is that they would say that they're Scottish not British and Welsh not British,but they get mad when people refer Britain as England. Isn't that contradictory? If someone doesn't like being British then why complain? Before I get any abuse, I'm really not trying to offend anyone here, I just don't understand why some Scots and Welsh behave like that. They would prefer to be called Scottish over British and vice versa, but then they want to be recognised as Britain aswell. They say things like "Britain is not just England you know" I'm just really confused on how this works.
