    I agree. Gravity is funny. For example erections are humourus because they defy gravity.

    question ; How flat is the earth?
    Thus in the Pacific Ocean on our side of the earth it is already 124 miles deep and that is just at the Mariana Islands.
    Add to this the depth of the Indian ocean (the other side of earth) we already get a pretty thick flat earth.
    question, how thick is the earth from its surface to its center?

    And this picture holds generally true from any point you want to drill down. Everything is more or less equidistant from the center of the earth, which in a geometric sense makes the earth a sphere, albeit with an irregular surface.

    question; how is it possible that flying in any direction will always brings us back to our point of departure?
    The answer is: the earth is a sphere and if you circumnavigate the earth in any direction will always bring you back to the point of departure. You never come to the end of earth, because there isn't any. It's a fricking sphere.

    questions: which other planets are flat?

    And someone actually is proposing the earth is flat??????? This is becoming a comic strip.
