Just read this article on CNN, and had to check my calender if it is April 1st today:

„The flat earth conspiracy is spreading around the globe.“

(CNN) "I don't want to be a flat earther," David Weiss says, his voice weary as he reflects on his personal awakening. "Would you wake up in the morning and want everyone to think you're an idiot?"

But Weiss is a flat earther. Ever since he tried and failed to find proof of the earth's curve four years ago, he's believed with an evident passion that our planet is both flat and stationary -- and it's turned his world upside down.

"I absolutely freaked out," Weiss tells CNN in a phone interview. "It literally whips the rug out from underneath you."

Now, Weiss finds it tedious to associate with the majority of people -- though he "unfortunately" still has some friends who believe in a round earth. "I have no problem with anybody that wants to believe we live on a ball. That's their choice," he says. "It's just not something I resonate with."

etc etc

Man oh man, I hope this is „fake news“ :shock:

PS

... „Firstly, and most importantly -- "none of us believe that we're a flying pancake in space." The community merely believes that space does not exist, the world sits still and the moon landing was faked. The jury is out on gravity -- but as Davidson notes, no one has ever seen it.

Secondly -- no, you won't fall off the edge. While flat earthers' views of the world vary, most believe the planet is a circular disk with Antarctica acting as an ice wall barrier around the edge.“

... „ The jury is out on gravity“!!! :shock:

It is a well meaning joke. I am a Flat Earther and really enjoy the banter with people who actually believe The Earthers believe what we are saying. It does get good PR for those among us who need to see people more stupid than themselves :D

Kenny, glad to hear from a fellow Flat Earther from the other side of the globe.

Good try Paul (Montpellier).

If I was the owner of a Jensen business with a good clientele, quality web site, effective social media strategy and access to historical research - be it via Richard Calver's excellent range of publications or Ulric's Jensen Museum, I'd be asking myself why I bother to pump £100- £200 to advertise in each and every club magazine.

C'mon guys, let's try and be more supportive to those that feed and support us. I'm all for some superficial banter - but set up your own thread rather than hijack another I say.

The origin of the thread/discussion was whether our Jensens will be worth half a million in 2045 (as stated in the article)- or zero. Depending on whether we will still be able to use them on public roads.

Back On Topic!
I'm surprised nobody has yet posted a link to the Telegraph article.
Here it is.
You may need to register in order to view it. (Registration is free.) But just click on the link first and see what happens.
I think you are then allowed to view a couple of articles a week for free.
If you want to read any more than that, you will need to subscribe at 2 pounds a week.
There is also a SEARCH facility so you can read past articles about Jensen.
Search 'JENSEN INTERCEPTOR'
There's a few!
