Dear Diary, (page 45)

The world, or planet Earth rotates at a great speed, according to experts: At the equator (1666 Km/h) and in places like Madrid, found at 40º latitude (1275 Km/h). I’ve no idea at what speed it turns in our «little land», our terreta, el País Valencià, but I imagine it’s a little slower than Madrid, I reckon…

Then, if we are spinning around and God knows what else, out in space, why do they say that Scandinavia is north and Africa south? If our Earth space ship is hurling around out there in space, who can say where north or south is? Good grief! We really do create fantasies! Imagine, if one lies on one’s back in Spain and looks up, does one in Australia have to lie on their stomach? Won’t they fall off the globe?

Well, it takes some effort to imagine such things as a rotating Earth in outer space. We live in a ball, a rock, remember 3rd Rock from the Sun? We are travelling at immense velocities and if it is a velocity then it means it is going somewhere, and no one yet has been flung off the surface, (yeah gravity, don’t tell me). Curiously a pilot friend, from my army days, told me that pilots do not take into account the curvature of the Earth when making flight plans. Interesting…

Tomes have been written filled with explanations about the atmosphere, that it stays with us even when we’re flying in the biggest of jets, eight miles high and higher. Too many theories, too much «science» to play with my head and spoil my beer time. I really do not want to pay them any mind as they are not worth my attention. When you explain a truth you just need one sentence, but when you need a million words, I’ve no time, don’t bother me

Come on dude! You’re treating me like an idiot! Don’t lie to me!

And don’t accuse me of being a «flat-earther» either. Just gimme some truth!

A BIG HUG to you all, including the rationalists, the occultists, the surrealists, the flat-earthers, the globalists, the rightwingers, the commies, the gays and lesbians and trans, the scientists, the madmen, the cripples, the crazies, the sub-normals, well EVERYONE!
