On the other hand
~1.6 does have a point in that the Ramseys were treated differently from the average case.

Re: Minnemooseus
and this makes you the Loony Of The Week? Maybe because you have been here so long... Seriously though...happy anniversary! I think the American Voter already won Loony Of This Week at least.

Webcams have been doing it for a long-long time.
Yeah but my webcam has a little red light that is on when it's on...so how would anyone be able to secretly use it?

Re: Flat Earther "Mad" Mike Hughes ...
I wouldn't trust that thing to fly anywhere! Reminds me of those old-time videos where early attempts of aviation blew up and crashed again and again! This loon obviously seeks publicity...but for what reason?
Is Flat Earthism for real? How could anybody seriously believe that? Thats worse than believing that the planet is 6000 years old!

Re: Flat Earther "Mad" Mike Hughes ...
"It's the most interesting story in the world," Hughes told The Associated Press of his jury-rigged quest to overturn more than two millennia of scientific knowledge. And the whole thing is costing him just $20,000, according to the AP.
Ahhh ok, now i get it. Hughes is paying for publicity and publicity alone. He must figure that $20,000 worth of publicity will get him well known enough to tap the loon marketplace. If he is smart, he will invest some money into keeping himself alive while he does his publicity stunt. Perhaps a giant airbag?
Edited by Phat, : changed him to himself
