Oh shit he just disproved gravity and now everything is floating all over the place!

My favorite part of these is the "speaking to the gifted child" level of condescension in a dudes voice while telling you the dumbest shit imaginable.

So nice to know that education is failing worldwide

Interestingly centrifugal force does apply: apparent gravity at the equator (where the centrifugal force is strongest) is 0.3% less than it would be if the Earth were not spinning. So I guess this dude is 0.3% right?
the most frustrating thing is that he comes so close to disproving his own point. At around 7:00 he talks about the scale of the experiment and absolutely everything he says about the rotation speed is right.
If he only just knew a tiny little bit of math he'd be able to scale it correctly (at the risk of looking like a dummy, I make around 1 rotation every 2.16 seconds with the back of the envelope and a couple assumptions), and the water would barely move if at all.
This is what I love about these clips. Actual science is happening here, heaven forfend!
Anyway, brother has a nice model and all, which is a great way to bootstrap yourself into something where the math is too heavy, but he's neglected a key point. The gravitational force vector in his analog model is pointing along the rotational axis of the sphere. On the real earth, it's normal to every point on the surface. This completely changes the expected effect and invalidates his model.
Why is that, Oscar?
I know it's normal to surface of earth, but why not other spinny thingies?
You globe shill

i see a bunch of skeptics and straw herrings but does anyone actually provide proof? no. keep youre heads in the sand, retards.

They created derogatory term for earth shape normies.

Damn, things really took a turn for the worse for Tommy Carcetti after he ran for governor.
