“I’m just fine in left field here” = “I’m happy to remain ignorant.”

Time to stop feeding the troll folks. He’s not interested in understanding, just arguing.

Or seeing who can provide something other than the usual drivel.

And that was more to do with Bazzers attitude - I'd rather remain ignorant yet open minded and good than an agreeable condescending douche.

I suppose I could ask you or anyone else this - why is there perfect concentric circles on night time lapse pictures?

And since Forbes is an accepted source in this thread: this is their celestial mechanical idea:

Doesnt add up to me if everythings inside everything and spinning at different speeds. /full rehtard

Smells like insecurity in here.

I answered your question. You attempted to divert the conversation with a non sequitur and then proceeded to put on a stunning display of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

No just super sensitive. I'm on the cusp of being a millenial after all.

Thought you were lurking?

Because it's a time-lapse photo with the lens pointed at the pollar north.  Each star trace is only partial,  as is evident in the photo.  That concentric, circular look can't be achieved unless you aim the camera at either the southern or northern pole.

I do understand the north star and yes, its as partial trail due to only a 6 hour time lapse. I just expect to see some lateral movement or some deviation other than a perfect circle because our orbit shouldnt make perfect circle's.

Just two hundred years of the same old stuff man.

Also, you can always tell youre close to the target when you start taking flak or attack bots come out of lurk mode retirement.

See, you make statements like that without any reason. Why shouldn't it make it make perfect circles?

The earth orbit does precess, but over thousands of years, which is far too long for any tiny little camera to identify.

We’ll sure it could be that. 

Or it could be that you’re  being foolish enough that we can’t resist poking a little fun at ya.

So that tower is in the same position regarding that procession or orbit all day, 24/7, 365 days a year? I dont see us spinning as a top.

Well yeah that tower, just like the camera are attached to the ground which is the earth which has gravity which is spinning which makes the fucking circles in a long exposure when the camera is pointed at the staionairy tower on a spinning planet. WTF is there not to understand
