A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

"The rise of modern print culture The printing press and the relatively wide availability of printed materials further undermine the importance of the 'local community' in ... Feudal societies based on face-to-face loyalties and oral oaths begin to give way to nation-states and to nationalism based on a shared printed language." Marshall McLuhan: Theoretical elaborations

Water is Round

Evidence suggests we live in a Universe best described as electrochemical. Tides might be more easily explained in those terms rather than the ad hoc contradictory manner of today's official explanation.

Cohesion makes a water drop a drop.

"Why is water sticky?

Water is highly cohesive—it is the highest of the non-metallic liquids. Water is sticky and clumps together into drops because of its cohesive properties, but chemistry and electricity are involved at a more detailed level to make this possible. More precisely, the positive and negative charges of the hydrogen and oxygen atoms that make up water molecules makes them attracted to each other. If you've played with bar magnets you will know that the positive (+) side of one magnet will repel the other positive side, while a negative (-) side of one magnet will attract the positive side of the other magnet. Positive charges attract negative charges.

In a water molecule, the two hydrogen atoms align themselves along one side of the oxygen atom, with the result being that the oxygen side has a slight negative charge and the side with the hydrogen atoms has a slight positive charge. Thus when the positive side on one water molecule comes near the negative side of another water molecule, they attract each other and form a bond. This "bipolar" nature of water molecules gives water its cohesive nature, and thus, its stickiness and clumpability (maybe "dropability" is a better term?)."

Late 20th Century CGI:

This can be done in real time today. Mathematics is demonstrably a great human invention. Computer graphics technology proves it. Software artists study nature and attempt to reproduce it through the medium of mathematical computer code. This is where the research of the governmental monopoly, Bell Labs went. Our parents and grandparents paid for it by way of the tax system. We pay for it still. Where do you think all the "black budget" and all the rest of the "defense" budget goes? Computer technology, special effects, R&D for all sorts of things. Some projects include weapons, I'd guess and some include aircraft and the rest. But not at the level we are sold. Most of that goes into forging magical and mesmerizing Hollywood "Gold".

Just for references:

This is worth watching. It explains the Earth's Magnetic Field.

The natural magnetic field suggests a globe Earth as well. But I suppose one could just as easily claim The Earth could be a disk. Perhaps someone should make the squat cylinder based Earth model. The Earth might be shaped like a doughnut for all I know. This video is interesting as the narrator points out how NASA and other government and university websites are spreading false information about this subject. Imagine that.
