Speechless (an that doesn't happen often).

Erm?

1995 called, and it wants it web "design" back.

For the last few years I've been seeing cheap A4 sized posters along roadsides (particularly A82 & A9) proclaiming: "The Earth is Flat". It must be the same nutter(s) who have produced this website.

Oh, missed these bits earlier:

"Website Construction & Photography" 😃

and...

"Photographer and attractive racontour." 😃

@fitheach "£1,000 prize for you if you can provide ONE proof the world is a globe.
NOT NASA proofs NOT science proofs.
YOUR OWN PROOF"

What? Not science proofs??

@Alastair
They should keep their £1,000, and spend some of it on decent web design. It's not only the content that is offensive.

@fitheach @Alastair I wish I did this joke myself.

"This site is vegan" → it's a joke.
"The EARTH is FLAT.
It is CERTAINLY NOT
a round oblate spinning spheroid globe ball." → it's a joke
@fitheach @Alastair IMO, the Flat Earth Society is an informal group of people doing jokes online. No one seriously believes the Earth is flat.

@guillemot
If it is a joke they have amazing perseverance. I'm pretty sure it is the same person/people that have been putting up posters stating "The Earth is Flat" all around the Highlands for about 5 years.

@fitheach

I wish it wasn't sites like this that still used 1995 web design, I would quite like a 1995 web, just with informational integrity.

@midder
I can't say I miss the use of tables in page layouts. 😉

@fitheach This is the good old school weirdness from a more innocent time (except maybe the "flat earth kills globalists bit").
In Scalloway on Shetland there's a plaque put up 100+ years ago by a local man proclaiming his own particular gravitational theory. He claimed to have written a book, but I couldn't find it in the National Library. Have a photo of it somewhere.

@priryo
You might be right about the old school weirdness. There are so many angles on the pages I'm not sure where they are coming from.

@fitheach I can never imagine anyone so daft and assume those sites are elaborate trolls.
But you never know I guess...

@fitheach Not clicking. I don't give those sites the time of day Iain.

@gemlog
I don't think you'll be adding to their ad' revenue.

@fitheach No (I use ad-blocker anyhow), but their logs would show the traffic and 'interest' from me.
