i saw a show on tv that claimed that the planets, moons, and stars, etc. are egg shaped. 🥚 :confused:
Earth is oblate.

The earth is not a sphere. The earth is an oblate spheroid with a diameter at the equator that is 43 km larger than at the poles, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. ... The bulging at the equator is caused by the centrifugal force due to the spinning motion.

I think the Sun is the only heavenly body in the Solar System that is a perfect sphere.

If you're a regular viewer of SciManDan then you will know these Flat Earthers. If you aren't, then you'd probably like to meet them...

Flat Earth Fail Compilation 23​

It's Flat Earth Fail Compilation time, and this month is no different to normal. A classic selection of fails from the very best that flat earth has to offer (which isn't much).

Major Flat Earther Quits Flat Earth!​

Welcome to another Flat Earth Friday everyone! As we all know it has been a disastrous few weeks for flat Earth, but to top it all off a major flat earther has claimed they no longer think that the Earth is flat because of one photo!

We are going to take a look at what went down and how the flat Earthers are in panic mode!

Here is Nathan's Flat Earth Debate show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9l78W...

Here is Catz' stream where Ranty bowed out of Flat Earth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gdXP...

Here is Roohif's excellent analysis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwXWP...

Thank you all for watching!

I saw a Flat Earther doing an "experiment" on YouTube to show how Earth can't possibly be a watery globe. He drenched a sponge ball in water, held it in front of him, then quickly spun it as he let go so it quickly span a few times before falling to the floor. As it span in the air a load of water sprayed off it in all directions. His point was that if Earth was a watery globe all the water would fly off as it span. Somebody should point out to him that Earth spins much more slowly than that ball - it takes 24 hours to do just one rotation. Also, Earth's gravity is much stronger than the ball's.

A well-known Flat Earther for viewers of SciManDan's YouTube Flat Earth debunking channel had a device which measures Earth's rotation. He didn't think it would work as he believed Earth didn't spin. He filmed himself LIVE on his YouTube channel on front of his followers using the device, and as he was using it he suddenly exclaimed "A 15 degree per hour drift!", because that's what the device was measuring. So he accidentally debunked himself and Flat Earth live on YouTube. He's called Bob and whenever SciManDan mentions him on his channel he plays the part of the video on which Bob exclaims "A 15 degree per hour drift!" and then SciManDan always says "Thanks, Bob!"

A HUGE thank you to Kevin Jackson for allowing us to use the photograph!

So it will be interesting to see what will happen with this image. I will be going over it in a live stream with Ranty and hopefully Roohif on the Baldy Catz channel next weekend.

It will be hilarious to see the inevitable responses that will be generated by that live stream!
