1: We need to make mountain biking safer. The number of athletes injured this year is way too damn high.
2: There needs to be a system in place to transition athletes out of high risk and into other parts of the cycling industry as their careers advance.
3: I would enjoy watching Gee, or any other rider, ride Enduro trails with lower risk.

 @fatduke: Sorry to hear about your injury, I hope that vision continues to improve! Kite boarding has always seemed like a really cool sport to me, but I'd always assumed the main risk was drowning. What broke your eye socket? Was it impact with the water, or some of your gear?

 The Earth isn't a spinning, wobbling, orbiting ball. The Earth is not curved, it's observable flat and stationary with no known edge. Lazer over large bodies of water, ie the ocean, prove its flat. Many other experiments also confirm this.

 @giantwhip: you're hilarious. I have read and continue to read many books. What does me being a minority here have to do with the fact that we do not live on a spinning ball. Gravity is an electromagnetic phenomenon, which is not what the main stream tells us. The sun and moon are also electromagnetic. The sun is not a big ball of gas burning, 93 million miles from earth. The sun is much closer and electric... Don't hate me because I've done my research and you haven't.
Light does not travel, it is not a particle. It's a perturbation of the either. Light also does not bend because of Gravity. Atomistic scientists have a lot to learn, or unlearn. Unindoctrinate yourself and learn something for yourself.

Go find the apparent curve of the earth on the ocean, or any land mass... O what, there is absolutely no curve. It is completely flat. Land is variable, up and down obviously, but never does it curve, or make a ball, or spinning ball for that matter. 70 percent of the earth's surface is water... And there's no curve.. for every mile traveled the earth is supposed to drop 8 inches. They give us fake math for the curve. Go find the curve, no one has found it yet because we don't live on a spinning ball.

 @Onetrickpony: navigation on the Gleason's map ( flat round earth) works Similar to the globe map. Actually it explains certain flight patterns even better and makes better sense of things than the globe.
There is 24hrs of light in the north but not the south.
You would know a thing or two about the Antarctic treaty then, which prohibits travel and navigation heavily to the public. The cameras that are recording in Antarctica don't record 24 hours a day and their excuse is that they don't have enough bandwidth. I call poppycock on your statement of 24-hour daylight in Antarctica.

I was there for the last sunset party and watched the sun do circles in the sky for the Senator summers that I’ve spent there. Perhaps I should put together a YouTube video so as that you can do the research for yourself.

 @Balgaroth: gravity is density, buoyancy and electro magnetic. The earth is negatively charged. As soon as anything is not touching the earth it becomes positively charged. Heliocentric model is the model you believe in by the way and you just said it was debunked. Heliocentric = sun centered. Meaning the planets orbit the sun. Of course this is not true. All of the luminaries (light bodies) in the sky, including the sun and moon orbit the earth. Geocentric is the truth.

Since no curvature exist and the refraction theory is bogus, unless the wall are just a couple of feet high, you would think we see it. And it must be higher to contain the water and the tides. Oh right, you have an explanation for the tides too...

 @Reagh: I’m dying a little on the inside as I chide in here….. but….
The Ross ice shelf is without a doubt the flattest placed that I have seen (about as flat as the open ocean). although it’s flat you can see 4000m mountains rise up over the horizon from 200km away as you drive towards them and disappear as you drive away. It’s as if you travel towards a horizon over a curved globe like thing.

For historical reference the ‘great ice barrier’ described by James Clarke Ross was 700km north (seaward) of where I was. But there are lots of rocky beaches and stuff that you can land on if you sail there from any latitude and longitude.

The major restriction to public travel there is the search and rescue services to that would be obliged to people that get in to trouble. It’s an easy place to get in to trouble and die.

I realise that this message isn't transmitted though satellites up in the sky, but it bounces off the top of the oven door in the giants house we live in.

It isn't a sun in the sky, there is no day and night, but the big giant is turning the oven light on and off.

This explains global warming, he is turning the oven up to brown off the pizza.

You have saved me my brother.
I am saved.

I can't see the curve of the earth either, I always believed it was because I was really small compared to that curve, but it must be because it's a deep crust and not a thin and crispy.

 @Onetrickpony: the mountains arnt Necessarily just disappearing over the curve. Have you heard of angular resolution, things disappear because we can only see down to a certain angle but if you have a camera or something that has a powerful soon you can still see them. I have worked with a flat earther for a good year so I've heard all the arguments. A few of them make sense logically which I think is park of the problem. The earth curves at 8 inch per mile squared and there is proof of people zooming in on things they shouldn't be able to see. Plenty of them on YouTube. So logically if you can see around a curve how can it be there ? But because I don't understand the science of why the logical answer is wrong I would be more likely to belive the logical answer.
It's the same with a few things. You can't have 2 differnt pressure systems nect to each other without a sealed container. The pressure will equalise. So how can you have the atmosphere of earth next to the perfect vacuum of space but we are also able to fly from one to the other. Logically there has to be a barrier and we can't fly through it or the 2 pressure systems would equalise as they do on earth. That is easier to belive than than the science explanation that most don't understand.
The coriolis effect. So sniper has to take this in to account when shooting long distances. If it effects a bullet why doesn't it effect a plane. If you fly say north to South then why isn't the run way spinning under you east to west when you come to land. If you fly east to west at the equator which spins at 1000mph how can you ever get to your destination when the plane is traveling at 500mph. Logically either the coriolis effect doesn't effect bullets or the earth doesn't spin.
I enjoyed the arguments but was never bothered enough to look up why the flat earther is wrong.
One thing he does say is true tho. .
We are all brainwashed from birth, we are told x,y and z at school without proof and we take it as gospel. In reality they don't prove to us that we are on a wobbly space pair traveling in 4 directions at crazy speeds through the universe. But we know it is true

Exceptions such as the January Capitol excursion do occur. Probably more than a few flat earthers there. But hit them reality did in the end.

 @filryan: Yes, they do prove it to us. I don't know about the physics classes in the UK, but where I went to school it was in fact proven to us.
Regarding your last three points:
-There is no sudden pressure difference and there is not one single height were outer space begins and the earths atmosphere ends. The earths atmosphere gradually gets thinner the higher you get, that's why aircraft have pressurized cabins. This also means that there multiple definitions of where space actually begins.
If you'd like to read more on that: www.nesdis.noaa.gov/content/where-space

-The corriolis effect does indeed affect airplanes. The force is just orders of magnitude smaller than other forces the plane experiences. The most significant of them being wind, which in turn is affected greatly by the corriolis effect. An interesting article on this topic: walter.bislins.ch/bloge/index.asp?page=How+Airplanes+correct+for+the+Coriolis+Effect

A lot of the misunderstandings have to do with the fact, that we humans don't have an intuitive understanding of different frames of reference, especially when it comes to deciding whether a system is an inertial frame of reference or not.

Because he knew I didn't know all about the subjects but argued with him anyway made him even more hot headed and made him worse. It was hilarious to watch him wind him self up.
The points you explained make sense tho, as for at school we were told about space and the like buy I'm sure we didn't go in to it too much. It may depend on age too, I'm 39 so school was a long time ago meaning it may well be taught and proved now. Also I wasn't in the top set for physics so maybe the more brainy kids did get it taught to them with explanations.
What ever the reason its the same as in my job,(electrician) we say a little bit of knowledge is dangerous. Meaning people can change a plug top and they think they can rewire the whole house. 99 times out of 100 they do something dangerous.
The flat earthers learn little bits about everything and think they know better than the rest of the world. Once you start down that rabbit hole then you start to see lies and conspiracies in everything.

 @filryan: I gotta admit, arguing with people like that is indeed fun. It's not productive in any way unfortunately, because nothing can and will change their standpoint. I think the main problem isn't that people don't get taught about these subjects, but rather that they didn't learn how to critically analyze the sources of information they consumer. This, in my experience, especially applies to people who went to school before the internet, but are still young enough to use the full extent of technology nowadays. Schools nowadays have caught on to how important it is to teach people about how to notice whether a source is credibly or not.
I might be a little off on how much I was taught in high school btw, it is entirely possible that I learned a few of those things in college.

You are absolutely right, those people are the most dangerous. The first thing I was taught in my engineering design class, was to always have the dumbest person in mind and make sure that even they can't hurt themselves with your product. I can only imagine how bad it must be as an electrician.

 Gee is still pushing boundaries in the sport. I can imagine he has one of the best teams around him. The Athertons are legends in the sport and its not nice reading about bad crashes. All the best dude.....

 We wish you a full and speedy recovery, last but not least ... and some good doctors and good nursing to help you through the painfull times [saying this in profesional way not for the PB troll factor].

You will hopefully see a storming comeback similiar to Bulldog's run in Leogang.
Stay positive and take your time to heal up.

 The femur is the tough one. That's a really bad bone to break. Lot's of people fully recover from it, but lots of people don't, and I don't know if hardness, or athleticism, are determining factors.

 Get well soon Gee! I relieved to know you haven't suffered any serious injuries. Keep the ice and ibuprofen going and you'll be biking again in no time.

 WoW FCK. I made the good décision stopping DH
  • 1 0
 Me too. A few hard hits and a broken wrist that required surgery to resolve told me to stop DH, particularly drops over 4ft and very rocky terrain. Just not worth the risk. I'll gladly ride the Blue DH trails and some Black Diamond DH trails, but I'm done with the Double Black stuff.

 @SuperHighBeam: just not worth the risk cant agree more ! Have fun riding things you enjoy and bE safe mate
