Now define "below"
I guess OP assumes that "the sky" is defined as the atmosphere. Which it isn't, really. If that were true, the Moon would not be in the sky.
Seriously, just imagining this gave me major vertigo :/
don't look up
High how are you.
Enough to read it as "How high are you?"
I read it as "How High are you" too
We're equally high then. Cheers!
This sentence acknowledge that he did not ask how high you were. But you still answered with how high you were
Good and you
Not so bad
Damn am i high too
You certainly are.
No, officer, it's... wait
Enough to say hello to the majority of the sky below their feet.
High I'm good how are you
This is frying my head
I don't get it
Before I answer, do you think earth is flat or round?
It's flat as my titties
I didn't get it at all tbh until someone presented a drawing.
That's because you are a lawyer
objection, your honour. calls for speculation
I'd be happy to redact. It's in plaintiffs 10... 106 no 104, i think it's 104-a OBJECTION you honour may we approach?
Actually we cannot tell how much of the sky is in each direction so we can only assume that there is an equal amount of sky in each direction.
"Vast majority" means much more than half; 51% or something doesn't cut it. The sky is more or less bisected by the horizon.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure you're just wrong.
This is brilliant, and I need to know the actual ratio. I know it's about calculating the area of a circle segment but I don't really know how to do it
It's doable and I found a guide online but it's like 20 minutes of work for no reason lol
what? no. pretty simple maths
There is no "sky" though.
there sure is. i've seen it with my own eyes
The thing we call "the sky" is just space within our atmosphere. It's not different from the rest of space.
no, no. you see, space is black and the sky is blue!
Isn't it all sky?
Nah, some portion is above us.
If you mean to think about the column of sky directly above and directly below you there is about the same infinite amount of sky
there is no indication that it's infinite
I hate you for this, but yes. Note it only applies to sky as the universe would be the same in any direction.
Damn that's trippy
Well, because the Earth is shaped like a donut, the amount of sky below us depends on where we live.
this is the right answer
The earth is shaped like a donut?
More like an egg
The visible universe extends equally in all directions, so it's equidistant.
It's 50/50 if you're a flat earther.
laughs in flat earther
(I am not a flat earther 🌎)
I remember the simpler times. Sky is up. Syndrome is down. Roller chair go round and round
This is the best one I've seen so far!
Well done, that made me think for a second.
I'm suddenly very conscious of all that sky beneath me. Did I mention I'm not a fan of heights
Or do you mean our atmosphere?
Found the flat earther
Think he means since the world is round, most of the 'sky' in the atmosphere is below us if you made a perfectly straight line below your feet.
That would only be roughly six extra feet compared to what's above you. I wouldn't call that a vast majority.
If you make a straight line at your feet vertically at the ground, you'll technically have "all" the earth and the sky/atmosphere that covers the rest below your feet. That should be a solid 75% at least I recon.
If I mention the "night sky" that includes distant stars. If you mean atmosphere, say "atmosphere."
Idk how much of the earth you think you see on the horizon from your cone of vision, but you are able to see a lot less than 50% of the sky from any one point on the earth...
I... don't like this.
