News Flash! The World is NOT Round!

This just in,
The world is not flat as we all have thought,
but in fact ROUND as an orange in july.

-----------------------

Well.........that is old news......

But what if there was no Christopher Columbus,
and that he hadn't found the "New World" in 1492?

Would the world have remained forever shadowed and the vast
outreaches of the world considered flat, therefore a risky venture?

And who is your favorite explorer?

Marvman thinks Ferdinand Magellan rocks.

Anyway,
Enjoy the rest of your Columbus day Ladies and Gentlemen.


Rockn.

Columbus was not the first European in America, and I really don't know what all the fuss over him is about. The ancient Romans even knew about America.

Yeah markings and ancient carvings show vikings were in Canada centuries before Columbus. He didn't even know he found America lol.

Anyway, I thought the Earth was more egg-shaped. Not with the exact form of an egg, but it isn't completely round either.

Well of course it's not perfectly round. Nothing is.

It's close enough though.

If Christopher Columbus didn't discover that Earth was round, someone else would have.
EDIT: The earth is more of a perfect sphere than a billiard ball.

Actually, I was watching a documentary the other day, and apparently physicists working with the Gravity Probe B satellite have fashioned a perfect sphere for their gyroscope for the frame-dragging experiments.
