a "Let\'s argue" thread

I've noticed that we can argue about nearly anything...let's see what this generates. As a little side note: a fella once told me something that I believe (nearly) and it makes life a lot easier for me, he said..."We live in a world of Near Truths".


The sky is blue.

Polar bears are white.

The earth is round.

Are these true or false?


Explanations please...graphics might help.

Extra credit for correct spelling and mixed case posts. First to use profanity gets sent to the Time Out corner for one post.

Lies all of them.
The sky only appears blue due to the light refraction.
Polar bears are black and the fur is translucent.
The earth is flat. Actually it is oblong.

Oh hell give me a time out!

Good...now we start the argument! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

If the sky "only appears blue" it must therefore be perceived (appears) as blue by our eyes, our eyes can see (interpret) color and the color I (me alone as far as I know) see when I look at the sky is blue...the sky IS blue... A smaller volume of air isn't blue but we don't call a smaller volume of air "sky".

What about when the sky appears red or at night, the sky is black at night (except for those shiny twinkling things).

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

The earth isn't round.. last time I looked Mnt Everest was 24,000ft above sea level (approximately) and Marianias Trench (spelling?? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )was several miles below sea level. Can't be round in my book.

as for the other questions... I'm color blind and can't see sh!t [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] anyway. So as long as the sky isn't falling and the earth isn't blowing itself up, I beleive I'll go have another beer and not worry about it while I'm serving my timeout. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Happy 4th of July to my fellow shooters!

Steve

LOL

So far this is pretty good.

Steve can't reply to this one, guess he needs to made a non-reply reply. Happy 4th to you too...(Can you hear me over there in that corner?).

Somehow I knew you'd have something different...right away taking the thread off-topic [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Lone Waddie: "I been noticing that when you get to disliking somebody they ain't around for too long either!"
