Today we were doing longitude and latitude it maths. This confuses me profusely. Not the maths part, I understand that. Geometry is easy. But when I think too much about how the Earth is a circle I just get stuck in the land of disorientation.
WHY DON'T PEOPLE JUST FALL OFF THE SIDE OF THE EARTH?!
Yes, I know. Gravity. But really.
An invisible magnetic force is all that's keeping us from sliding off this massive sphere?
Like, you cant walk around the streets and be like 'ohh gravity doesn't look too good there, I might just walk around that little spot.'
It just does not make sense!
And also, why do they call it the North Pole and South Pole? There's not actually a massive pole that goes through the earth like there is on globes... So why don't they just call them the North Land and South Land?
The pole part is just deceiving!
Honestly... what were the country naming people thinking?!
On a side note, my tea tastes like it has sugar in it.
Cheers mum, now I won't be able to get to sleep until 2 o'clock in the morning.
Sarah is for lovers - Blud.
Also, Flat Earth Society would be a hell cool name for a band. Just saying...
