The earth is flat

[ Kiwozi ]
It has come to my attention recently that the “Flat Earth Society” are alive and well.  Their flat members consist of fat people in authority, behind fat flat desks, passing their theories onto IT People to brainwash the world.
I know this by a number of facts:

  1. We don’t have Southern (South) Latitudes anymore, we have Minus (-) ones instead.  Obviously there is no such thing as a “minus” latitude and I can only surmise it is over the edge (around on the dark side).
  2. We don’t have Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) anymore (despite the fact that one can easily find Greenwich on a map).  No no we have UTC now and good luck if you find this on a map…maybe thats around on the dark side too ?
  3. Then of course GMT always used to be expressed in 24hr (or Military Time)…now we can’t make up our mind whether to use 1300 UTC or 1pm UTC.
  4. Nevermind, if we know our position we can certainly avoid sailing over the edge – now let me see where we are exactly (32.65375° S,  009.17767° E )  or is it  (– 32.65375°, 009.17767° E )  or is it  (32° 39.225′ S,  009° 10.660′ E )  or is it  (-32° 39.225′ , 009° 10.660′ E )  or is it (32° 39′ 13.5″ S, 009° 10′ 39.6″ E) or is it (-32° 39′ 13.5″ , 009° 10′ 39.6″ E )   ??????  Well sorry you’ve defintely gone off the deep end because these are all exactly the same place.
