Re: Flat Earther "Mad" Mike Hughes ...
Or an elevator. There are at least five buildings taller than his goal of 1,800 feet.

The CN tower is 1818 ft tall but the top 100 ft is a radio mast. I've been to the upper observation level:

The SkyPod is 447 metres up (1,465 feet), or 147 building stories and is one of the highest observation platforms in the world.

Then there are mountains ... I've also been to Paradise on Mt Rainier

Hiking

If you plan to visit Paradise, remember that Paradise is located at an elevation of 5,400 feet and trails have at least some steeper sections. Please stay on the trails; the meadows are very fragile and heavily visited.

It's all them saved daylight hours....

Rrhain

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Drought caused by daylight savings time... totally believable.

Anthropogenic climate change... what a load of nonsense that is!

Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for... I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.

Ignorance is a most formidable opponent rivaled only by arrogance; but when the two join forces, one is all but invincible.

Paul McGuire
Via Right Wing Watch.

During an appearance on Jim Bakkers television program last week, End Times author Paul McGuire declared that the attacks on President Trump are a sign that America is in the greatest spiritual battle in the history of all of mankind. McGuire doubled down on that assertion on his radio program on Tuesday, insisting that a spiritual war is being waged against Trump by Luciferian advanced beings who use supernatural multidimensional power to control the world.

The unprecedented attacks against President Trump and his administration are something that weve never seen before in all of human history, he said. These unprecedented attacks on Donald Trump are part of the greatest spiritual battle in the history of mankind.

The physical battles that we see in our world and nation right now are a direct manifestation of the spiritual battles going on in the invisible realm, McGuire added. There are people very high up in what is called the globalist occult or globalist Luciferian rulership system, and this rulership system consists of what used to be called the Pharaoh-God Kings, its what Aldous Huxley called The Scientific Dictatorship, and these are advanced beings who know how to tap into supernatural multidimensional power and integrate it with science, technology, and economics.

They are people at the highest level of the pyramidic organizational structure in which the highest ranking officers, if you will, of the New World Order and Mystery Babylon are ruling the earth through an organizational structure that looks like the pyramid on the back of the U.S. dollar, he stated. And they control the world because they understand that the true control of the world is done through supernatural mechanisms.

This appears to be what we call, in English, "a joke".

We also have a phrase in English, "You have got to be kidding," for when we can't believe anybody could be that stupid. But sometimes they really are.

But the structure of the letter looks so much like a joke that I'm leaning that way. It reminds me of when someone posted an excerpt that was clearly from the letters page of Viz, a satirical comic that publishes letters like this:

Re: It's all them saved daylight hours....
Wait! Are you telling us you actually buy your storms? And then pay for the cleanup afterwards? Wow! That is craziest thing I ever heard.

And you folks think Americans are dumb?

Uhh ... don't answer that!

It is suspiciously lacking in spelling mistakes - but it appears to be a letter to the editor so the editor may have fixed it up.

I'll tell my story again: In 1972, Richard Nixon was re-elected by a landslide, even as Watergate loomed on the horizon. One commentator suggested that America preferred a smart crook over an honest fool. Ever since then, if somebody prefers to be seen as an honest fool rather than a smart crook, I take his word for it.

Cases in point: Donald Trump and ICANT.
